Junior Team Takes Two from Northern Cyclones

Following a weekend off, the Huskies were excited to get back into game mode and build off what they did at Berkshire. The Huskies traveled to Rochester, home of Elijah Devereaux ‘20 and Sam DiBitetto ‘18, to take on the Northern Cyclones of the USPHL.


Senior and Rochester native Sam DiBitetto went home to tackle the Cyclones.

The team looked to jump out and get attacking early in their first game on Saturday night. Matt Shanklin (Forward, 2019) started the scoring early in the first, and then the goals piled on. Goals were scored by Sean Bunting (Forward, 2019), Sam DiBitetto (Forward, 2018), Patrick Callahan (Forward, 2018), Elijah Devereaux (Forward, 2020) and two from Cody Monds (Forward, 2020) who led the Huskies to a 7-1 victory. Jacob Mucitelli ‘19 played stellar in net. DiBitetto was excited to play in his hometown. “It was great. I had so much fun and so did Elijah,” he said. “All of my family was there, and so were my friends. It was cool to play in front of them.”

It was a quick turnaround for the Huskies, as they battled the Cyclones again early Sunday morning. It was the same mentality for the group, attack early and dominate play.

They did just that. A whole mix of players got in the scoring for the huskies. DiBitetto, and Bunting had one each, while Tommy Bannister (Forward, 2020) netted two and Santeri Hartikainen (Forward, 2018) potted a hat trick. Rico DiMatteo ‘20 recorded a shutout. Patrick Callahan was happy with how it went. “We played well both games, did some good things. We are now really excited for the St. Sebastian’s Tournament next week,” he said.

With two solid wins under their belt, the Huskies now shift the focus on St. Sebs. This is one of the biggest weekends of the year for the group, and they are excited to prepare this week and hopefully bring some hardware home after winter break.
