Junior Team Wins Beantown Classic

The Beantown Fall Classic is  “a team entry event featuring elite teams from North America at the 18U, 16U, 15U and 14U levels.” Both the Prep and Junior team played in the U18 division of the tournament. The tournament was held at the New England Sports Center in Marlboro, MA, which has a total of ten rinks.

The Prep Team didn’t have their best weekend, finishing with a record of 1-2-1 versus tough competition. Interestingly, a win against Boston Bulldogs U18 would’ve forced the Prep Team into a tournament matchup against Northwood’s Junior Team. It likely would have been the first meeting between the two teams outside of The Northwood Invitational Tournament in the school’s history. The Prep team fell to the Bulldogs 6-3.

The Junior Team had a much better weekend going 8-0 and winning the tournament. In the first six games of the tournament, only 4 goals were allowed by the Junior Team including two shutouts. During these games, they managed to score 17 goals of their own.
