The Washington Little Caps 2002 Team won a pair of games versus Team Maryland last weekend.
Saturday’s game- The first period saw a back and forth action with multiple chances at both ends but ended deadlocked at 0-0. Team MD broke the tie early in the 2nd on a rebound in front before Matthew Price from the Little Caps struck back late in the frame, leaving the game tied at one after two. The Caps turned up the pressure in the third period and created several scoring chances before Alex Vouras scored on a pass from Bauer Morrissey with less than 3 minutes to play. Stellar goaltending by Aidan Rudolf allowed the Caps to hold on for the 2-1 win.
Game 2 on Sunday morning was another solid effort by the Little Caps. The Caps came out strong in the first period and kept up sustained pressure. But Team MD weathered the storm and held a 2-1 lead after one. The Caps continued to apply pressure in the 2nd period and David Hanny was able to score a pair of goals to take the lead 3-2 heading into the final stanza. The third period finally saw the Caps get some breathing room in their favor. Two more goals by David Hanny and one by Johnny Sterling in a two minute span gave the Caps a 6-2 lead. Team MD scored a pair of late goals to make it close but Rudolf closed the door for the 6-4 win. Hanny ended up with 5 goals (a team record) on the day and Parker Cole assisted on 3 of them. Zachary Stoner chipped in with a pair of assists.
The weekend saw a strong team effort offensively and defensively in both games and the boys were rewarded with two wins against a worthy opponent.
