Mite 1 Lakers finish regular season in 2nd place

The Fay’s Boat Yard Mite 1 Lakers hockey team battled against the NH Avalanche Squirt team on Saturday night in their final game of the GSL regular season in the Squirt 4 division.  The Lakers were first on the board with two goals within five seconds of each other by Matthew Hale who netted all six of the Lakers goals in the game. Lakers forwards  Breanna Ricker, Zachary Spicuzza and Kameron Young battled hard in the second period along with defenseman  Andrew Rowley and Jaden Morin to keep the Avalanche out of the Lakers zone but the Avs fought hard and tied the game in the 2nd period with three unanswered goals. 
Intensity increased in the third period when both teams put their fourth goal on the board with the Lakers forwards Logan Stroud, Jacob Allison, Liam Lichocki and Evan Guerin fighting to keep the puck away from the Avalanche.  With just a minute and a half left in the game defenseman Peyton Vachon, Owen Guerin and Griffin Tondreau worked hard to try and keep the Avs deep in their own zone. Hale put the Lakers ahead with the Lakers fifth goal and then put the sixth and final goal for the Lakers on the board with .007 seconds left despite the Lakers being short-handed by one player due to a penalty.  Goalie Patrick Goodwin saw a lot of action and made 18 saves in the game. With this win the Lakers clinched 2nd place in GSL Tier 4 and will start their quest to win in the playoffs on March 8 at the Everett Arena.

Ice racers head to Lee Pond for 5th event of year

A snowy Sunday didn't stop the Lakes Region ice racers or their fans from gathering on Lee Pond for the fifth event of the 2013 season. The club went to a single, 12 lap feature format to make the best of the ice conditions.
This week's event sponsor was Burns Automotive Service of Moultonborough NH. Matt Burns presented the trophies to the division winners at the victory circle ceremonies.
The Juniors were the first division out on the ice. Jackie Martel, in her VW Rabbit, took the checkers in a flag-to-flag run. Chris Taylor settled for second place. 
The V8 Stock Division was next out with Moultonboro's Adam Cahoon taking the win after rival Danny Cook dropped out with his radiator plugged with snow.
Jack Cook of Moultonboro missed several of the earlier 2013 races due to a shoulder injury, but was back in racing form on Sunday. By holding the inside line, Cook held off Rick Martel and took the win in the Modifieds Division.
Northfield's Tim Chase in his Toyota MR2 again dominated the 4 Cylinder Division feature, chalking up his seventh feature win of the season.
Check the club's website at www.LakesRegionIceRacingClub.com or its facebook page for the latest race/ice status, results, information about coming events, and for race photos and video.

Eight year-old Bradley McIntire of Gilford, NH led the Gunstock Stingrays Swim Team by winning eight individual events during last weekend's New England Regional swim meet in White River Junction, Vt. On his way to victory, McIntire set five new personal best times.
Wolfeboro's Anya Found, 11, followed with two victories, both of which qualified her to compete at next month's prestigious New England Age Group Championship. Found improved her time in three of her four events. "Anya and Bradley represent the efforts of a group of swimmers who have been improving their technique and building fitness, and it shows," Stingrays coach Martha Kidder McIntire said. "I couldn't be more proud of our athletes, families and coaching staff."
The meet drew competitors between the ages of 6 and 21 from 24 teams around New England. In addition to their 10 victories, Stingray swimmers also finished in the top 15 on 33 occasions. Abby Larkin of New Durham finished in the top five in two events and teammates Joshua Kelleher of Laconia, Paige Fenderson of New Durham, Reagan McIntire of Gilford, Beck McLean of Gilford and Sarah Bellefleur of Wolfeboro all had multiple top 15 finishes.
