VJW 02 Selects Win Green Mountain Tournament In Exciting Shoot-Out
02Selects_Challenge_350.jpgThe VJW ’02 Selects made the most of their long weekend!

The talented squad competed in the Green Mountain Avalanche Tournament which was held at Jay Peak (VT). After compiling a record of 2-1, the Warriors entered the finals against the one team that they had lost to during the preliminary round – the New York-based Rampo Saints.

The Saints took an early 1-0 lead in the first period and held on to that advantage for most the game. With less than two minutes remaining in regulation, the Warriors pulled their goalie and came through with the game-tying goal with just 36 seconds left.

“The parents went crazy in the stands,” said VJW Head Coach Ray Robinson, whose team earlier in the season won the Turkey Tournament Championship at The Rinks at Exeter. “We are just so fortunate to have a great bunch of kids who continue to work hard and have fun playing.”

The game ended in a 1-1 tie which meant that the contest would be decided by a five-player shoot out. The Warriors fell behind and faced an early 2-0 deficit in the shootout, but once again they battled their way back. The score was deadlocked at 3-3 after the first five shooters so the game came down to a one-for-one sudden death challenge where the Warriors prevailed for the championship victory.

“The entire team - as they have done all year long - put forth another gritty and tenacious performance,” said Robinson. “Our Warriors have earned themselves some great wins beginning way back in the Spring League where they had to take on older teams.”

In addition to these non-league victories, the Warriors have been strong in Hockey Northeast play as well. The team currently has a 10-9-5 record and are poised to make a run for the Playoffs which will be held in Springfield, MA on March 1-3.
