Congratulations to the Watchung Hills Jr. Warriors who went 5-0 on the weekend with wins for all of our teams.
The game of the week definitely goes to the Squirts who played hard against an evenly matched Denville team up until the exciting finish.
The Warriors came in strong in the first period with an unassisted goal by Peter Martin (Metuchen) which was answered exactly a full period later by Denville keeping the game tight at 1-1 until late into the third period. With 15 seconds left in the game, Martin took a last-chance shot from across the ice, to put it between the goalie’s legs and into the net, giving the Warriors a 2-1 win. Jake Campos (Gillette) did a spectacular job in his first outing as the goalie.
PeeWees Over Wayne
Our PeeWee Warriors win another high scoring game, this time against Wayne.
The Warriors went in hard in the first period with five goals and weren’t going to be slowed down. Setting the tone for a fast and exciting game. Wayne played tough however and the final score was 11-5 Warriors.
Both Bantam Teams Bring Home Wins
Bantam Black kicked off the big Warrior weekend with a 5-3 win over rivals Rockaway. Rockaway kicked off the game with the first goal, but Warriors Daniel Adams (Bernardsville) answered four minutes later to end the first period in a 1-1 tie.
Warriors came into the 2nd strong with two goals, the first by Lucas Rohman (Bridgewater) with an assist from Ryan Lamberson (South Plainfield), the next came just seconds later, another from Adams with an assist off Jack Ost.
In the third period, Rockaway came back to make it a tight 3-3 game, but the Warriors weren’t to be denied and scored their final two goals, both by Adams. Stephen Zwolak (Greenbrook) was in net.
Bantam Gold played early Sunday morning and despite a sluggish start, held on to a 3-2 win over Hanover. Leading scorers were Alec Bergners (Warren), Severyn Khomak (Watchung), and Alekos Antippas (Summit).
Mites Take Home Another Win against Beacon Hill
The Mighty Warriors Mites showed up Sunday with a full team and very quickly over-powered Beacon Hill. Ryland Flynn (Gillette) played net.
