VJW 02 Selects Defeat Islanders to Win 2012 Turkey Tournament
02Selects_2012Thanksgiving_500.jpgAlthough the Warriors and Islanders play in two different leagues they have faced one another a few times recently and developed a friendly rivalry which ended with both teams competing for the Turkey Tournament Championship at The Rinks at Exeter this year.

The 02 Selects began the Turkey Tourney at the
Whittemore Center - the home ice rink of the University of New Hampshire - where the team defeated the Dover Stars by a score of 2-0.


The following day the talented squad competed at Phillips Academy where they fell to the Islanders AAA team, 2-0, in what was a very tightly contested match up. Later that day, the Warriors responded well with a 7-3 victory against the Portland Pirates AAA. With that win, the Warriors punched their ticket to the final game and a chance for redemption against the Islanders.

From the time that puck first dropped until the final buzzer blew, the Warriors skated hard and jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two periods. The Islanders battled back in the final stanza, however, and netted two goals to tighten the contest. In the end, the VJW 02 Selects came through with the 3-2 championship victory.

"It was great goaltending and an unselfish commitment to the team's goal which proved to be the difference," said Ray Robinson, head coach of the VJW 02 Selects. "I could not be any prouder of this team."
