In what has been a season-long battle for first place in the Peewee Major division of the Massachusetts Selects Hockey League (MSYHL), the VJW '98 Elites came through with a huge 2-1 victory over the Middlesex Braves. The Warriors struck first at the 3:43 mark of the first period when Liam O'Neill (assisted by Collin Murphy) found the back of the net. After the Braves tied the score early in the second period, the Warriors responded just over five minutes later when Brandon Cann - off a feed from Bill Falter - netted the game winner. Nick Howard collected the win in net!
As a result of this latest victory, the VJW '98 Elites now stand just one point behind the Braves in the league standings with an impressive record of 18-0-3. Next up for the surging Warrior squad will be a home league series against the SS Dynamos (Saturday @ 4:25 p.m.) and WM Blades (Sunday @ 3:25 p.m.).
