Congratulations to the coaches and all the boys on winning the 2019 EJEPL split season championship! They made it look easy by winning the games they played against teams in the division by out scoring their opponents 35-7. Teams had such a tough time that one decided they would rather take the forfeit then face the wrath on the ice.
The team went 9-1 on the season with their only blemish coming against an outside opponent. The almost perfect record afforded them the right to go straight to the championship where they would wait for their opponent.
The championship game was the same as the regular season as the boys dominated the competition, the first period was a lopsided one with the Stars dominating and frustrating their opponent so much that they decided to play the 2nd period with a running clock and eventually their coach walked onto the ice and quit . FINAL score 6-0 Stars !!!
The game winning goal came from Tommy Meehan on a nice pass from Guy Casillliano driving down the middle of the ice. Guy saucered a pass to Meehan who didnt have much time in front of the goalie to make a move but what a move it was, as he roofed it with a beautiful backhand. It was the only goal necessary as the team rode to an easy victory.
The champs head to Chicago this Thursday and there is no doubt the competition will be much better in the AAA division CCM world invite in which they have 32 teams from all over the country looking to bring home some hardware. The team is looking forward to competing for another championship win...... to be continued.
GOOD LUCK BOYS !!!!
