Walpole, MA - The 02 Premier won the 2015 Turkey Tournament hosted by the Rinks at Exeter, NH. The Express offense was in high gear all weekend, outscoring opponents by a combined total of 21-4.
In the opener, the Express played a fast paced possession game against the Lovell Knights and came away with a 4-1 victory against a very tough Knight’s goalie. On Saturday, game 2 saw even more productive offense from the Express during a 7-0 win over the Seacoast Spartans.
After a few hours off the Express played a scrappy Boston Stars team in game 3. Both teams traded scoring opportunities in a back and forth matchup that was tied after 2 periods. The Express pulled away with 3 goals in the third and a 5-3 final, to set up an appointment with the Stars in the finals.
Some good puck movement ahead of the Express 5th goal.
On Sunday the Express faced the Boston Stars again for the Championship, but early scoring and steady forechecking put the Express on top with a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. A 5-0 final gave the Express the Championship.
