The Men’s hockey team faced off against Zell am Zee tonight (city by the lake). For a select few freshman it was a chance of a life time to suit up for a European team.
Eric Mack, Michael Restuccia, Gabriel Cromp, Taylor Swarter and Peter Kazakis were awarded a once in a life time opportunity when the local team ran in to some roster trouble due to unforeseen circumstances and were short some players.
The boys got to suit up in the bright, sponsored covered jerseys and play with the European squad. They added some skill to the team which helped make it a great game for all.
Both teams came out strong and Junior Eric Cinotti had to come up with some big saves to keep the game even.
In the second period Castleton’s powerplay came to life tonight and generated a trio of great goals as each unit were able to put nice shots behind the Zell am. Zee goaltender. The final score was 5-0!
The weather did not cooperate today, however it has not dampened anyone’s spirits. Tomorrow we hope to do a group gondola trip up the mountain for some amazing views and pictures. We will play our final game of the trip at 7:30 versus the local team of Kitzbuhel!
