The Varsity Team had another exciting week of Hockey. Sunday the Team never quit and came back from being down 2-0 after to two periods to tie the #3 Glenbrook North Spartans 2-2. The action was outstanding from the outset. After the Giants gave up a couple of power play goals, the goaltending and defense shut the Spartans down the rest of the way. The Giants fought back with a beautiful goal from Ryan Genender early in the third period. Then with an amazing effort from Dylan Abt in the offensive zone, Zach Chamberlin was able to score at the buzzer on a rebound from a Abt shot. What a game! Monday evening the Giants hosted New Trier Gray. With Zach Gordon in net, the Giants dominated the play from start to finish putting up a 5-2 victory. The Giants scoring came from Michael Gallo, who had two goals, Jordan Meek, Jack Elbaum and Sam Fraser. The GIANTS schedule remains strong when they host Loyola on Sunday evening 7:10 PM and New Trier White on Tuesday the 17th at 9 PM. Both games are at Centennial Ice. COME OUT AND BE A PART OF GIANTS HOCKEY!
This past Sunday, the New Trier Team, #7 in the State, came to Centennial Ice Arena to face the #8 GIANTS. After 45 minutes of thrilling Hockey, in a squeaker, the Trevians came away with a 4-3 win. Zach Gordon, the GIANTS Goaltender had a solid night in net with 17 saves. Offensively the GIANTS had goals from Sophomore Josh Velick, Seniors Dylan Abt and Michael Gallo. With the largest crowd of the year, the GIANTS HOCKEY TEAM had a fund raiser for Cancer Awareness Month. Thanks to the fans, the GIANTS sold 110 T-Shirts and raised $1,110.00. A large portion of the money raised will go to the ILLINOIS BREAST CANCER ASSOCIATION. Once again, the GIANTS want to thank all their great supporters. The crowds have been fantastic all season. The GIANTS schedule doesn’t get any easier when they travel to Northbrook Sports Center on Sunday afternoon to play the #3 Glenbrook North Spartans.
