Following a hard loss against Marblehead, the GHS boys hockey team bounced back and opened the floodgates to the Peabody/Saugus co-op team in an 8-0 rumble at Dorothy Talbot Rink. 

The goal scorers of the game were assistant captains Chris Karvales (2) and Brett Cunningham, along with Colby Warren (2), Chris Dailey, Kellen Moran, and Sam Sanfilippo. Assists were credited to Cunningham (2), Charlie Terelak, Dailey, Captain Joe Orlando, and Peter Gilraine. 

With the 1st quarter winding down, Warren started the fire for the Fishermen with a right corner blast past the Peabody goalie. Only 2 minutes later, Karvales scored after tipping in a pass from Orlando. The last goal to finish the 1st was by Cunningham, who slid the puck past Peabody’s goalie from a Dailey pass.

After a missed shot by Karvales early in the 2nd, Cunningham brought the puck around the net and passed it back to Karvales for his second goal of the night. For Warren’s 2nd goal, Terelak passed the puck to center ice for Warren to shoot between the goalie’s legs. Dailey scored his first goal this season after slamming a Peabody defenseman into the boards and hitting the puck in between the goalie’s leg pad and the goalpost. To finish the 2nd period, Moran took the puck from across center ice and down to Peabody’s goal, shooting the puck between the goalie’s legs for his first varsity goal. 

Gloucester’s final goal was scored by freshman Sanfillipo, who took the puck from a Gilraine pass in Gloucester’s half and passed through 3 Peabody defenders before scoring over the goalie’s head. This is Sanfillipo’s first varsity goal of his career. 

All of Peabody’s 15 shots were knocked down by Gloucester’s senior goalie Nick Tarantino, making some crucial saves from all angles. 

“It was pretty electric,” Sanfilippo said about scoring his first varsity career goal. “[It was] 8-0, so I couldn’t really [celebrate] or anything. I’m just happy we got the win.”

Gilraine shared a similar feeling about his achievements. “First varsity assist today; the boys were buzzing out there. It was a good game, but we didn’t suck the defense in enough. It was a good game for the boys, though.”

Captain Orlando expressed pride in his team post-game. “The win felt good [and] it’s good to get back on the right track after the tough loss,” Orlando said. When asked if he was expecting this big of a win, Orlando said the team “expected to win by a lot because in the past years, [they’ve] beaten this team by a lot.”

“Hopefully the win gives us confidence for the huge game Wednesday against the number 8 team North Andover.” Orlando said. 

The boys now have a record of 8-6, ranked one place behind North Andover via the January 26 D2 Power Rankings. Pack the tank this Wednesday as they play the Knights at 6pm.
