St. Edmund Prep Hockey Returns To The Ice
The St. Edmund Prep High School varsity ice hockey team will kick off their 2010-2011 season this weekend. The Eagles will open up against Brooklyn rival Xaverian High School on Friday, December 10, at Aviator Sports Complex on Flatbush Avenue. The boys from St. Edmund’s will have a busy weekend as they return to the ice on Sunday, December 12, to take on Xavier High School at Abe Stark Arena in Coney Island at 7:45 p.m.
St. Edmund Prep plays in the CHSHL B Division South. The Eagles are looking to build on last year’s playoff appearance with many returning players. Team captain Anthony Galleano and assistant captain Rich Demolla are expected to lead a very strong defensive group to play in front of goaltender Donald Marchetti. Junior forwards CJ Tortillo and Anthony Catroneo are expected to fill the opposing nets for the Eagles but the team will rely on their depth as well. They have seniors Matt Schmalix (assistant captain) and Chris Georgio along with Rockaway residents Mike Cerrone (senior) and Kieran Rogers (junior) to help fortify the lineup.
