Walpole, MA - Throughout a long season, a hockey team endures ups and downs and highs and lows. In the case of the 2002 Walpole Express, they have come out of the gates on an extreme hot streak, playing 15 league games and compiling a record of 13-2.
The “14’s” have accomplished a great feat at the half way point of the season, being the #1 team in the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League (EJEPL). The U14 Walpole Express have held the #1 ranking in the myhockeyrankings.com since the start of the season, beating out of 1,048 teams across the United States and Canada.
“It has been a great experience with these kids thus far this season, we have been travelling to some of the best tournaments and showcases in the country, and I think this has really brought the boys together,” said head coach Rob Barletta.
In addition, Coach Barletta has been named Head Coach of the EJEPL All-Star team. The game will take place in Connecticut this January.
