The Jr. Warrior ’02 Elite team won the 14U Tier 2 State Championship with a final win against the Walpole Express at the Rodman Arena on Sunday, November 15th. The road to the finals was paved with wins in pool play over the Bay State Breakers (3-1), East Coast Wizards (3-1), and the Canton Bulldogs (5-2). In the playoffs, they took down the Eastern Mass Senators with a 3-1 win and then finished off the tournament with the 3-1 win over Walpole Express.
Says Coach MacAdams “It was a true team effort with these guys. We had a team of 12 due to illness and injury, and they all pulled together. Most of the team has been together for 4-5 years and I can really say it was a team effort where everyone contributed. We knew we were coming out to play a lot of ‘01s and that would make it a more difficult competition, but they were able to get it done.”
This win secured the team a spot at the USA Hockey National Championship tournament, March 31 – April 4, 2016 in Charlotte, North Carolina!
Good luck and here’s to a continued great season!
