BJW 2010 Elite Team Captures Selects Hockey LobsterFest Title!

Monday, July 9, 2018, 11:53AM

Portland, ME - The Boston Junior Whalers 2010 Elite Team ventured north this past weekend to the beaches and rinks of Maine, and emerged as the 2018 Selects Hockey LobsterFest Champions!

The weekend began on Friday afternoon, where the boys skated to a 2-2 tie with the Philadelphia Hockey Club.  In Friday's nightcap, the BJW 2010 Elites edged out a strong SHD Philadelphia team by a score of 2-1, and sat in first place with a 1-0-1 record.

Saturday saw the boys jump out to a quick start, scoring early and often as the team handled the Nova Scotia Stars with ease, winning that contest by a score of 9-2, and earning themselves the #1 Seed heading into the playoff round.  The semi-finals took place on Saturday afternoon at North Yarmouth Academy, and in a rematch with a scrappy Stars team, our BJW 2010 Elites continued to find the back of the net early and often while receiving incredible goaltending, and broke away as winners of that contest by a score of 8-1.

This set up a much anticipated rematch between our BJW 2010 Elites and the SHD Philadelphia team in the Championship Game.  Teamwork and strong defense proved to be vital, as the boys broke through the back and forth play and took home the title with a 4-3 win in the Championship Game.

Congratulations to all of the players, and to coaches Ward and Cullity on a great weekend!
