Gateway lost to Plum Monday, but the Gators did get two crucial wins last week to help its playoff chances.
Gateway beat Montour and Pine-Richland, each by the score of 3-1.
The win over the winless Spartans was expected, but the victory over Pine-Richland, who was ranked No. 2 at the time, was a surprise.
The Rams outshot Gateway, 44-16, but Tyler Perhac stopped 43 shots to help the Gators pull off the upset.
Perhac, who was selected to play in Sunday’s Class AA All-Star game, stopped 27-of-28 shots in the win over Montour.
Offensively, Camden Cacolice has scored a goal in three straight games and six of his past seven.
