Foxboro, MA - The Boston Junior Whalers 2011 Elite Team kicked off the 2018 spring/summer tournament season this past weekend with a perfect 5-0 record en route to being crowned champions of the 2018 Shamrock Elite Invite!

In the first event of the 2011 Elite Team's inaugural season, the 11's opened up the weekend on Friday with a 7-1 win over the Mass Edge 67's and a 14-2 win over the Tropics.  On Saturday, the team's winning ways continued as they broke through a 4-4 tie to end up defeating Hockey Essentials by a score of 7-4, earning a 3-0 Round Robin record and punching their ticket to Sunday's playoff round.

On playoff Sunday, the BJW 2011 Elites picked up where they left off against Hockey Essentials, coming out of the gate hot and earning a 12-0 victory over Hockey Essentials in the semi-finals.  This victory set up a much anticipated matchup against the equally undefeated Blue Chip Selects.  After going down 1-0 early, and a bit of back and forth play during the first half of the game, the BJW 2011 Elites broke the gate open, scoring 4 consecutive goals en route to defeating the Blue Chip Selects by a score of 7-2 and capturing the 2018 Shamrock Elite Invite title!

Congratulations to all of our players for a great start to their BJW careers, and we look forward with much more success with this group in the coming years!
