The Lady Islanders 19U squad came home from Philly Sunday 3/1 with the MAWHA league championship banner in hand!
The Lady Islanders 19U team faced off against MAWHA's First Place Princeton Tiger Lilies to start the MAWHA Championship playoff series early Sunday afternoon. After scoring the first goal in the first period, the Ladies had to continue to support their side of the ice, finally capitalizing on a power play opportunity to make it 2 / 0 in the 3rd. An additional goal sealed the 3 / 0 shutout to place the girls in the Championship Game vs the NJ Rockets later in the day.
The 19's went on to play a great game vs the Rockets, where they were able to defeat the Rockets team 5 / 1 to take the 2014 / 2015 19U MAWHA Championship series.
The Ladies finished their MAWHA regular season in 4th place with a record of 10 / 3 / 4 with 69 goals for & 26 goals against. Great finish to a busy season.
It's now off to the NYS USA Hockey Championship games where they will represent the NYS Eastern Zone.
In other MAWHA Championship action, the Lady Islanders 14U had a very tough draw in the first round. The fourth seed Isles had to face the number one seed New Jersey Colonials. With an injury plagued bench the Girls put on a show for the crowd and took the game into overtime with a 0-0 regulation game score. Jersey would however record the only tally in the OT period taking the semi final game 1-0. Great game girls and Congrats on a fantastic season.
