VJW '99 Selects Celebrate Mass State Select League Championship
Another team that enjoyed a special celebration this weekend was the Valley Jr Warriors '99 Selects (shown right).
In a playoff run where three of the team's four games were decided by just one goal, the Warriors came through with a huge 3-2 victory over the NorthStars on Sunday afternoon to capture the Massachusetts State Select League Championship. One day earlier, the Warriors - a third seed entering the tournament - defeated the NorthStars (4-3) and the NV River Rats (2-1). The next morning, the team knocked off Greater Boston to set the stage for a championship showdown with the Northstars.
The exciting finale was a fitting end to what was a tremendous season where three of the top teams in the Squirt Major division battled for first place. The top three teams in the division - NV River Rats, NorthStars and Valley Jr Warriors - were separated by just two points!
Congratulations to the entire '99 Selects squad on a job well done!
