ORLEANS – The energy on the home team bench was palpable on Feb. 8. Not only was it Senior Night for the Cape Cod Furies, but the Nauset/Monomoy/Cape Tech squad had come to win. Three periods and five goals later, they'd given their seniors something to celebrate. “I was excited. Once we put one in, we got rolling,” Furies head coach Addie Weeks said of the 5-0 game. “We haven't been been able to produce in th...

HYANNIS – The Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs scored first in their Feb. 1 game against the St. John Paul II Lions, but a punishing third period meant another tough loss for the struggling home team. The Monarchs fell 7-1 on Friday night, with their lone goal coming at 10:25 when Monomoy's Lucas Tambolleo found an opening and slapped the puck through, capitalizing on an assist from teammate Charlie Southworth. Tha...

ORLEANS – Between interrupted breakaways and pucks that simply refused to slide into the net, the annual Codfish Cup between the Monomoy/Nauset/Cape Tech Furies and the D-Y Dolphins just didn't go the Furies' way. No doubt given the level of intensity the home team Furies brought to the ice at the Charles Moore Arena, the 2-0 loss carried a bit more of a sting, as did several questionable calls by on-ice offic...

HYANNIS – The lucky number was seven in the Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs boys ice hockey game against Wareham/Carver on Monday, but it wasn't the Monarchs who were lucky. Instead, the home team fell 7-2 to the Vikings in an outing that left head coach Chris Peterson shaking his head. “It was just a really tough game,” said Monarchs head coach Chris Peterson. “We didn't show up. We've been having a hard time gettin...

ORLEANS – Sandwich might have come away with a win against the Cape Cod Furies on Dec. 21, but that doesn't mean the home team made it easy for them.

ORLEANS – When losing a number of seniors through graduation, a rebuilding year might be expected, but when the Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs boys ice hockey team faced the Nauset Warriors on Dec. 14, there was little to suggest either team was struggling. Instead, it was a fast-paced contest at the Charles Moore Arena when the first and hopefully annual Lower Cape Showdown commenced. Part fundraiser to benefit the...

HARWICH – For the past several years, the winter sports season, particularly ice hockey, has officially gotten under way with game play between the Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs and the Nauset Warriors. The same goes for this season. But this time there's a twist.

HYANNIS – The end of the 2018-2019 season proved a roller coaster ride for the Monomoy/Mashpee Monarchs boys varsity ice hockey team, which fell to Middleboro/Hull last Thursday, then defeated East Bridgewater to earn a spot in the playoffs before falling to Foxboro in the preliminary round. The team was missing a number of players when they took to the ice at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center against Mid...

ORLEANS – It was a tough Senior Night for the Cape Cod Furies girls varsity ice hockey team, which fell to BMW/ORR on Feb. 13. Molly McKenna did her best in net to keep the score low, but the Canalwomen capitalized on two power plays en route to a 3-0 shutout, their first goal coming at 8:07 in the first period when the Furies were down a player due to a penalty. The Cape Tech/Monomoy/Nauset home team stepp...

ORLEANS – There was a charge in the atmosphere around the home team bench of the Cape Cod Furies. The energy was nearly electric, the chatter among players intense and determined, peppered with “let's do this!” and “c'mon ladies, we've got this!” even though a single goal had yet to be scored. Then came the third period between the Furies and the Vineyarders and a final score of 3-1 in favor of the home team, ...

HYANNIS – One player can't win a game, but Noah Tambolleo of the Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs certainly gave it his best shot in spite of his team falling 5-1 to the visiting Martha's Vineyard squad on Jan. 9. Tambolleo scored the first goal of the game at 7:31 in the first period, but it would be the only goal the Monarchs would put on the scoreboard all night as the Vineyarders cruised to a commanding victory. ...

By: Kat Szmit

HYANNIS – As is the case in many athletic events, the scoreboard at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center didn't tell the whole story in the Cape Cod Furies 4-0 loss to Barnstable on Jan. 5, but fans of the Furies will tell you that while their team might have lost, they played hard from start to finish, with goalkeeper Molly McKenna leading the charge. Thanks to McKenna's quick reflexes and solid defensive h...

ORLEANS – If the Nauset Warriors were expecting a high-scoring rout of the Monomoy-Mashpee Monarchs in their home opener Dec. 8, they weren't prepared for Monarchs goalie Jack Daigneault, who kept the Warriors to three goals in their 3-1 season-opening victory. “He's the reason we keep a lot of games close,” said Monarchs head coach Chris Peterson. “He's a standout. I mean, 40 shots on net? He keeps a lot of t...

ORLEANS – The Cape Cod Furies girls varsity ice hockey team might have fallen 5-1 in its opening night tilt against the Barnstable Red Raiders, but in spite of what the scoreboard read, the home team didn't go down without a fight.

Furies Fall In Tough Senior Night Loss

By: Kat Szmit

ORLEANS – It was a tough senior night for the Cape Cod Furies, who skated well in spite of a 3-1 loss to BMW/ORR in what was also the team's last game of the season. It was a game that looked in the beginning as if it would belong to the host team Furies, who kept the puck largely in their possession, weathering a power play in the first period to keep the game scoreless. The Canalwomen struck first in the ...
