It's very humiliating for a team comprised of 25-35 year olds to lose to a team full of 16-19 year olds, regardless of skill level. They will do that to you (I was one of those guys who was 18 playing against 30 year olds), and you just have to fight through it.
There aren't any other options for a bunch of friends of varying skill levels to play summer hockey together. Nearly everyone on the team has stopped playing competive hockey (except the three players under 18). Are we not allowed to play semi-organized hockey again until we are 25-30? I would also like to add that I think the personalities on a team are what determines how well behaved the team is. Some people are just plain jerks.
