U18FS: Express go Up Against Best in the East

Walpole, MA  - The U18 Full Season team competed in both the Beantown Classic & The Beast Showcase this weekend.

The Express squad faced off against some of the East Coast's top midget teams and held their own.  In the 3 games at the Beantown Classic, the Express group lost tight games to the the Boston Advantage (3-2), the Hill School (4-0), and Team Maryland (3-2).  The Express U18 squad played in front of over 50 scouts in attendance at the event, and got some positive feedback from the coaches on the 1st year team.

On Sunday, the U18 team squared off against the Boston Jr Eagles, the 12th ranked Tier I team in the country.  The team played hard and showed they belonged, holding the Eagles to a 2-0 lead after 2 periods.  Some quick 3rd period strikes by the Eagles turned out to be the difference in this game and the Express were on the losing end of the contest.

While the weekend record of 0-4 does not seem positive, the comments from the scouts and college coaches were extremely positive. The outlook is bright, and the U18 Express will continue to improve.

"We are very happy with our team this weekend.  We learned a lot about ourselves as players and as a team.  We certainly have some things to work on, but are heading in the right direction," said Coach Murphy.
