Killington Rec’s new Street Hockey League welcomes new players each week

By Arra Derderian — The Killington Street Hockey League hosts games every Sunday morning at the Johnson Rec Center in Killington.

The first week in the Killington Street Hockey League, Sunday, April 21, the Fireballs topped the Meteors with a single goal late in sudden death overtime. Rutland’s Liam Bradley scored to take his team to victory. Both teams played each other very tight the entire game with a few missed opportunities on each end.

In the second week, April 28, the Firecrackers played the Superstars. 

“The team sizes doubled and we had 20 kids show up to play at the Killington basketball court,” said coach Arra Derderian enthusiastically. 

The Firecrackers won 6-3. Big saves were made by Firecrackers goalie Ben Reed and multiple scores were tallied by Kelvin and Zita Fisko. 

Local Dad Josh Reed said “I am impressed by how much poise and execution I have seen by these young kids today.”

“The Superstars showed a lot of grit this week from the Du Bois and O’ Leary girls along with Preston Bigelow and Milo McComb. They kept it close for most of the game, but in the end the Firecrackers defense led by Emily Derderian and Zoe Karr made it difficult for them to score,” coach Derderian recounted.

Action continues next week as the teams continue their quest for the Killington Cup.

Games are every Sunday morning at 10-11 a.m. from April 21 through June 16 at the Johnson Recreation Center in Killington. Kids in 1st grade and older are encouraged to register and join in on the fun!
