North Team Loses, but VJW Players Shine at EJHL All-Star Game
Although the North Division All-Stars did not prevail, the four members of the Valley Jr Warriors Junior A squad performed well in what was a showcase of the EJHL's top talent.
On Monday afternoon at the Tri-Town Ice Arena in Hooksett (NH), Trevor Braun(Windham, ME), Brett Mason(Rowley, MA), ConorRiley (Massena, NY) and netminder Fabian Sivnert(Hollviken, Sweden) competed in the 2012 EJHL All-Star Game.
In that game - which ended when the South team prevailed by a score of 5-4 in a shootout - Mason scored the North Division's first goal of the game when he collected a pass on the left wing, broke to the net and beat South goaltender Tyler Kapp. Sivnert, who ranks second in the EJHL in three major goaltending
categories, took over netminding duties in the second period and
collected eight saves. Braun also participated in the shootout, while
Riley was a force along the blueline.
Those four All-Stars will now join their team which is in the midst of a
nine-game league winning streak. The Warriors will next be in action
this weekend when they take on the Monarchs on Saturday (8:10 p.m.) and
South Shore on Sunday (2:10 p.m.). Both games will be contested at the
Haverhill Valley Forum.
