The Revere Patriots started the week 1-1 thanks to a tough loss to Ashland and a huge blowout victory over O’Bryant on Tuesday. That said, coach Joe Ciccarello is focused on the mistakes his team made in their 3-1 loss to Ashland on Monday.
“To be honest, O’Bryant was very inexperienced,” Ciccarello said. “It was Monday that we didn’t play well. We didn’t play with emotion or energy. When we don’t have emotion or energy, we are not a good hockey team.”
Cam Marzza had the Patriots’ lone goal. Ashland struck first and Revere-Malden tied it in the second. Ashland scored twice in the third.
Jim Pandolfo, Sebastian Bolivar, Mike Goroshko, Rick Brianna, Chris Anderson and Robert Stoica all had goals against O’Bryant.
“We played mostly the third and fourth lines,” Ciccarello said. “It was good to get other guys who haven’t had much ice time a chance to play.”
Revere-Malden has over a week until their next game, which is next Saturday against Gloucester. Ciccarello plans to use the extended period of time for harder practices, though the team does have a scrimmage against Pembroke at Fenway on Wednesday.
“I’ve called it hell week,” Ciccarello said. “We’re going to get in the best shape possible. January is busy – we have eight games, so we’re going to fine-tune some things and work on our conditioning.”
