Fishermen shake hands with Wakefield after a hard fought win

EDDIE MAHONEY, Sports Writer

The Gloucester Fishermen hockey team, led by new head coach Sean Lyons, is due for a good season this year. They had their first scrimmage against Wakefield on Wednesday, winning 7-5.  This year the Fishermen have two solid lines and are looking to achieve big things this season.

Captain Jared Favazza came out strong against Wakefield, and really set the tone by scoring an early goal in the first minute of the game. All three goaltenders played well, along with the rest of the team.

Even though the Fishermen played well all around, some major contributors to Wednesday’s win were Jared Favazza, Sal Costanzo and Eddie Mahoney with two goals each, and Brendan Polisky who scored one goal.

The Fishermen, who have been lacking goal scorers and a good defensive line for the past couple of years, seem to finally have a solid team. The team is eager and anxious for this season to start and seem to be ready for it.

They have their first game on Saturday, December 13 against Lynn at Connery Rink in Lynn at 6p.m.
