Congrats to all the coaches and players from our 18AA White team. After starting league play with a 1-2 record they went on to win 15 consecutive league games to finish as the #1 seed in the NJYHL playoffs which took place this weekend at the Ice Vault in Wayne.
Needing 3 straight wins to capture the NJ State Championship they beat the Wildcats 7-2 on Friday night, came back Saturday and beat the Bandits 3-2 in O/T on Saturday, then completed the sweep this morning against a tough Princeton team winning 5-4, earning a spot in the Atlantic District playoffs. Princeton then went on to beat the Avalanche to advance to the Atlantic District playoffs as well.
So it's Brick vs Princeton in a best of 3 series with the winner advancing to Nationals! Game 1 will be played at the Ocean Ice Palace this week, time to be determined. Game 2 will be at Princeton and Game 3 (if needed) will be back at the Ocean Ice Palace.
Great job guys. Let's go punch that ticket to Nationals!!!
