Killington Street Hockey action heats up

By Arra Derderian—Molly Du Bois defends the net as goalie, against Lily and Emily Derderian on offense. Also shown are Kelvin Fisko, Easton Bigelow, Robert Gieda, Travis Juris, and Nora Rudy.

In Week 3 of the Killington Street Hockey League season, May 6, the Superstars schussed the Comets with a big third period comeback led by Ziva and Kelvin Fisko. They netted some late game goals to put the Superstars over the Comets. Ben Reed and Preston Bigelow played tough for the Comets, both notching some points, while Maddie Juris played strong defense to keep the game close. Ava DeBiase had a few late game scoring opportunities for her team the Comets and so did Ben Reed as well. The Comets showed a lot of intensity as they rotated through their lines, but in the end the Superstars took the game.

In Week 4 of the Killington Street Hockey League season, the blackflies outnumbered the kids by a billion… Through three periods the score was tied 5 to 5, but in the end the Black Wolves led by Kelvin Fisko toppled the strong Banana defense. Kelvin was stonewalled with a glove save early in the third by rookie goaltender Maeve O’Leary. 

The Wolves kept howling though and tallied some late game goals to put them over the top. In the end the Black Wolves scored 8 to the Bananas’ 5. 

Orlaith O’Dwyer did a strong job of feeding the Bananas offense consisting of Liam Bradley and the Derderian sisters, Emily and Lily. 

Emmet O’Dwyer (fan and dad of Orlaith) said: “It warms me heart to see an O’Leary and O’Dwyer playing together tonight.” 

Week 5, and the teams are starting to come together for the showdown which is the quest for the Killington Cup. This week was a tough one for the Shooting Stars as the “Twins” Kelvin and Ziva Fisko teamed up to shut-out the Moguls. With scoring coming from Kelvin and impressive goaltending from Ziva, the Moguls had a difficult time getting points on the board. The Shooting Stars had a ferocious line of Orlaith O’Dwyer, Nora Rudy, and Lily Derderian who just could not bury the biscuit. Sage Karr and Ben Reed handled the Stars goaltending, but took a constant barrage of shots from the Moguls. “Peter DuBois and Todd DeBiase coached a perfect game. We will get them next week,” commented Stars coach Arra Derderian.

Teams will be finalizing their skills and roasters for the road to the cup this week and are excited to see some playoff action coming into June. 

Killington Street Hockey games are every Sunday morning at 10-11 a.m. at the Johnson Recreation Center. For more information and to register to play, visit: killingtonvt.myrec.com and join in on the fun.
