Milano’s Deli and Team Basile fighting for top spot in EBMHL
A tight race for the top spot in the East Boston Men’s Hockey League (EBMHL) is now happening.
Weeks back we had JC Detailing leading the pack of six in the EBMHL, but
things have certainly changed recently. Milano’s Deli and Team Carlo Basile
are tied for first
place, having stormed ahead of JC, who now rest in third place.
With the recent outstanding play of MIlano’s, one would be shocked
to see them anywhere but first place. They made their statement in week 9
with a resounding 4-1 victory over, the then first place, JC Detailing.
Carlo Basile rode the luxury of an unfortunate forfeit to get them knotted
up with Milano’s for the top spot. Here are your results for week 9:
EBYC 7, Mosca Squad 4
EBYC: Jay Powers 2 g’s, Dante Arinella 1 G, 2 A, J. Arinella 1 G, 1 A, John
Lloyd/Rod Griffith 1 G, 1 A each, Yano Amara 2 goals, and Ralph Guarino 1
Mosca: Dom DiMarzo 1 G, 2 A, Andrew MacCormack/Ryan Moran/Frank Dimarzo

Week 10 we saw three fantastic games on the slate that started out with
Preston Properties taking on Milano’s Deli in what was an absolute shootout
that came right down to the wire. Right from the opening faceoff each team
was poised to walk away with the win.
It was goal for goal throughout the
contest with Milano’s coming out on top 9-8 behind the fantastic play of
Captain Peter Hanlon who potted 3 goals, while Rob Bulla buried the game
winner as well as 4 assists for the 5 pt. evening. Brian Fraser pitched in
with a pair of goals, Nick Clewer, Vinny Schettino, and David Natola had
the solo tallies for MIlano’s. Preston goals were scored by Jay Rizzo and
Mike Russo, both who had a pair, Marc Lanzilli, Mike Mondello, and Jeff
Kasper notched the solo tallies. Game 2 we saw Team Carlo Basile take on
the Mosca Squad, in what was another barn burner down at Porazzo. Both
teams played their hearts out only to be tied at 5 at the end of
For Basile Chris Flaherty led the way notching the Hat trick
and 1 assist on a nifty David Berardinelli goal, who finished the evening
with a goal and 2 assists. Also scoring for Basile was Jeff Delpidio. The
Mosca Squad got its support from Captain Dom DiMarzo who put away a pair of
goals, while Ryan Moran, Joey DiMarzo, and Frankie Loconte had the loners.
In the shootout, it was Chris Piatelli who put away the Mosca Squad on a

JC Detailing took to the ice vs. the East Boston Yacht Club in Game 3 in
what looked to be a very close, hard fought game, but turned out to be
everything but that for EBYC. JC opened up the scoring in the 1st on a Matt
Armata goal, only to be answered by a Charlie Daniels goal for EBYC, which
was soon followed by a Dante Arinella goal giving the EBYC a 2-1 lead in
what looked to be a long night for the boys of JC Detailing. JC would fight
its way back on a Mike Marcinkowski tally followed by a Joey Salvadore
goal. Soon after EBYC got another one from Daniels knotting it up at 3. JC
was able to bury the game winner when Mark Buttiglieri collected a wayward
pass off the boards and fired one past goalie Nicky Rossi for the eventual
game winner. JC kicked it into gear and was able to power past EBYC for the
7-3 win. Totals for the evening for JC: Armata 2 goals, 1 assist, Salvadore
1 goal, 2 assists, Marcinkowski 1 goal, 1 assist, and single tallies from

Eastie falls to St. Mary’s High School; Thanksgiving game versus Southie next
The East Boston High School football team took on powerful St. Mary’s High School of Lynn in a non-league game Friday night and fell to the Spartans, 34-14, at East Boston Stadium.
Jo-el Pastrana gave the Jets an early 8-6 lead when he caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kevin Sinatra and followed with a run for the two-point conversion. But the visitors used their strong running attack to take control of the game.
Eastie’s Justin Roman scored on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter.
“We just couldn’t stop St. Mary’s run,” said East Boston coach John Parziale. “They controlled the ground game on us.”
Eastie (5-5) enters the annual Thanksgiving game against South Boston (3-6) needing a victory to end with a winning record.
“We’ll get the team ready – it’s a one-game season and this is our Super Bowl,” said Parziale. “South Boston won its last game so we have to be ready.”
The players and cheerleaders will participate in a school pep rally on Nov. 26. The Eastie-Southie game will be played on the holiday (Nov. 27) at 9:30 a.m. at White Stadium.
East Boston has won the last five Thanksgiving games versus South Boston.
