The East Greenwich hockey program was unable to field enough players for their own team this year so they joined forces with Toll Gate and formed a co-op team. It’s been rough going this season and a far cry from recent winning single-school seasons. Still team members have played hard.

A little birdy told me that this EG–Toll Gate co-op versus Pilgrim game could get a little chippy. That’s because Toll Gate and Pilgrim were a co-op team last year. Well, it started out to be scorey. Ok, that’s not a word but you get the point. 

Not four minutes into the game, the score was EG-Toll Gate 2 and Pilgrim 1. That’s as far as EG would go. Pilgrim scored again in the second and put three more into the net in the third to win this one 5-2.

It did get chippy with the officials handing out penalties on both teams, but they settled down for some good skating in the third.

EG-Toll Gate lost to Burrillville Saturday night, 7-3. Their next one against Mount St. Charles Feb. 7.
