Gates-Chili Ice Hockey Begins

Gates started off the season against the toughest team in Section V; Pittsford. The game was played at Genesee Valley Ice Rink in Rochester, N.Y. This was my first time shooting at this rink, so I tryed a couple lens and angles. Lighting was difficult as usual in most smaller rinks.

Overall Gates played well and held with Pittsford for 2 periods. Very defensive beginning with neither team scoring and very few shots on goal.

This was the only goal in the game and was scored on a shorthanded breakaway by one of Section V's top players from last year. Gates looked good and I think they will do some damage in Section V this year, just was a tough team to start the year with. Good luck Gates!
