BJW 2008 Elite Team Crowned Champions at CCM Boston Elite Invite!

Thursday, August 9, 2018, 2:37PM

Foxborough, MA -  The Boston Junior Whalers 2008 Elite team invaded Foxborough, MA, this past weekend for the 2018 CCM Boston Elite Invite and emerged as champions after stringing together a perfect 6-0 record en route to clinching the crown.

The weekend began on a high note, as the BJW 08's skated past the New Hampshire Knights and Roc City Elite by scores of 6-0 and 6-2, respectively.  The team concluded the Round Robin with a 14-0 thumping of the Leprechauns, and punched their ticket to the Quarter-Final Round, earning the #1 Seed out of the 9 teams in the Ovechkin Division.

On Saturday evening, the boys were met with their first real test of the weekend, as they squared off with an extremely strong Boston Supreme team, which was made up of players from Canada, Boston, and Florida.  After a back and forth regulation, the game was forced to overtime.  Despite taking an early penalty in the overtime frame, a shorthanded heroic goal propelled the team into the semi-finals on playoff Sunday.

With the steam picked up on Saturday evening, the team continued to roll on Sunday.  They came out early with three quick goals en route to defeating a talented X3 Hockey squad in the semi-finals on Sunday morning, and skated past an extremely skilled Shamrocks team in the Championship Game by scores of 5-1, and 3-1 respectively.

Congratulations to all of the players and coaches on capturing their second title of the 2018 spring/summer season!  In 2018, our 2008 Elite Team was the runner-up at the Shamrock Elite Invite, and were crowned champions at the Blue Chip Invite & CCM Boston Elite Invite!  Congrats on a great season!
