Flyer Bantams Take Two
Meriden — The Twin Valley Bantams received contributions at both ends of the ice in two wins last weekend, blanking Pleasant Valley 4-0 on Friday and taking a 5-1 decision from Kearsarge on Sunday, both at Kimball Union Academy.
Noah Gaudette, Peter Elder, Christopher Schell and Nick Haidari did the scoring against PVA, with Tim Dupree earning a pair of assists. The Flyers split the shutout goaltending duties between Grady Gilman and Chad Fazio.

Laconia Stops Mite Green
Laconia, n.h. — A seven-goal first period did in the Hanover Mite Green in a 10-2 loss to Laconia on Sunday.
The Lakers scored three minutes into the game, only to have the Wild’s Griffin Auch equalize on a Lachlan Simmers pass. Laconia built a 5-1 lead before Simmers’ unassisted wrist shot accounted for the Wild’s other goal.
Simmers, Jack Gardner and Bridge Close all had good scoring chances over the rest of the game, forcing several big saves from the Laconia goaltender.
Woodstock Girls Split
Northfield, Vt. — The Woodstock U12 girls earned a shutout win on Sunday in the opening game of a road-home doubleheader, toppling Northfield 2-0 at Kreitzberg Arena.
Hannah Coates started the scoring for the Wasps on a Lauren Miller assist, a lead that held until Audrey Lee’s empty-net clincher on a pass from Anna Hepler. Annabelle Lessard stopped everything she saw in the Woodstock goal to earn the shutout.
Woodstock nearly pulled off the sweep in a Sunday afternoon Union Arena date with Middlebury, which rallied from a 2-0 deficit for a 3-2 win. Coates and Sadie Kuhn scored for the Wasps, Miller earned an assist, and Hepler and Lee received key help on defense from Sidney Pilot and Samantha Yates before the Tigers completed their comeback.
Hanover Pee Wees Split
Durham, n.h. — The Hanover Wild Pee Wee White team handed Oyster River only its second GSL Tier III loss of the season with an electric come-from-behind 6-5 victory at Jackson’s Landing on Saturday.
Oyster River sprinted to an early three-goal lead before the Wild’s offense came to life. Jacob Derosier netted two early goals on passes from Sam Shepard. Hunter Whyte notched a goal and two assists, all in the third period. Cameron Woods and Alex Weinman provided key scores before Shepard broke the tie with a power play goal in the final minute.
First-place Lakes Region halted the Wild’s spirited offense in a hard fought 2-0 victory in Laconia on Sunday. Defensemen Brian Pattison, Aaron Damren, Ben Booker, and Duncan Bailey and goalie Eliana Ray kept the Lakers off the scoreboard for the final 21/2 periods of play, but the Wild were not able to climb out of another early hole. Jackson Stotland and Patrick Daley provided skillful two-way play throughout the contest.
