Catching up for the Seaway Valley atom AA Rapids
The Seaway Valley Rapids major atom AA hockey team skated on home ice Jan. 15, hosting the Cumberland Grads.
The Rapids dug themselves an early hole, allowing the Grads three goals in the first period. SVR managed to close the gap in the second stanza, when Ethan Montroy scored off a pass from assistant captain Marco McCarthy. Unfortunately, the Grads extended their lead when they soon got that one back, making it 4-1.
The Rapids did not give up, though, as later Montroy found the net twice, off feeds from McCarthy and captain Carson Martin. The Rapids were only trailing by 1 in the middle of the third.
Cumberland, though, went on to bag another three, handing the Rapids a 7-3 loss.
The major atom Rapids faced the Grads again on two days later, looking for a different outcome, but it was not meant to be. Seaway's lone goal was scored by Montroy, from McCarthy. The Grads converted on two power plays and an empty-netter to boot the SVR boys 4-1.
