Another Valley Jr Warrior player has been recognized for outstanding play. Just released, the New England Hockey League named Dante Armata - a member of the VJW '05 Elites - the NEHL 04 National Player of the Week for the week ending on October 7.
One week ago, Nick Cafarelli of the 03 Elites team was named NEHL Player of the Week in the 03 American division, while Matt Lucy of the 00 Elites picked up the same honor - in 00 American play - during the first week of the NEHL Qualifying Jamboree. During that important NEHL Qualifying Jamboree contest for the 05 Elites,it was Armata who scored three goals and added an assist to lead his Warriors team past the Wizards 04 - Selects. Also producing offensively in that cross-over game were OwenMcNally (2 goals), Jack Rogus (2 goals, 1 assist) and a trio - Ryan Leary, Molly Driscoll and Max Puleo - who all added a goal apiece.
The youngest team in the Warrior organization is currently competing in the NEHL 04 National division.
