The third seed in the Northern Division, the Warriors hosted the
Revolution this week in a first-to-three-point series at the Haverhill
Valley Forum. The home team - led by a two-goal performance by
Andrew Bonazza (Dartmouth, MA) - took a commanding lead in the series on Tuesday evening when they skated to a 4-1 victory.
In that second game, the Warriors were led by four goal scorers - Zach Sarig (Wyommissing, PA), Max Lorenzen (Leesburg, VA), Mike Miller (Wrentham, MA) and John Rogeri (Katy, TX). Riki Retelle (Andover, MA) added two assists and Chris Eiserman (West Newbury, MA) was a force once again in net by stopping 47 out of 49 shots for his second straight EJHL playoff victory.
Less than 24 hours, the squad once again exerted its offensive and
defensive prowess by scoring three unanswered goals in the third period
and holding the Revolution to just two goals to post a 4-2 win and
advance to the next round of playoffs.
