It was a busy and successful week for the Wilmington Youth Hockey Squirt 4’s, with five games over a three day span, with the bulk of the games coming in the 31st Annual Arthur M. Sachse Lakers Tournament in Worcester over the weekend.
After opening the Sachse Tournament with a pair of losses to higher division foes on Friday night and Saturday morning the Wildcats came back to get a pair wins on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, including a thrilling 3-2 win in Sunday morning’s consolation game on a goal by Adam Ippolito with 2:33 left in the game.
The Wildcats showed tremendous resiliency over the weekend in bouncing back from their two early losses in the tournament. While it would have been easy to simply give up after each of those lopsided losses against far superior teams, Wilmington instead followed the advice of their coaches and played Wildcat Hockey over the final two games to finish in third place with a 2-2 record.
