Warriors Finish Opening Weekend 1-1

October 12 saw the start of the Warriors season with both the Mites and Bantam Black team playing games out of Mennen Arena in Morristown. All Warriors teams play in the MCYHL out of Mennen Arena.

Our Mites started the season on Saturday, October 12 against West Morris with a loss. Our scrappy team of 4-8 year-olds gave it a tough fight and came out with smiles and donuts in hand. They’re looking forward to next week.

Bantam Black

Our Bantam Black team finished out the first weekend of games with a win against Wayne on Sunday night, also at Mennen Arena.

The game started strong with two strong teams battling it out. Wayne kicked the game off with a goal in the first period, but the Warriors were quick to answer when two minutes later Daniel Gallant (Stirling) answered with an assist from Lucas Rohman (Bridgewater).

Just when it looked like the period would end in a 1-1 tie, Julian Joglekar (Warren) of the Warriors put in an unassisted goal with just two seconds left in the period, ending the first period with a 2-1 lead for the Warriors.

It wasn’t until the third period, when the Warriors were able to put in the fourth goal of the game with Gallant again off an assist from Blaze Perez (Stirling).

The Bantam Black team started off the season strong with a 3-1 win.

All our Warriors teams will be playing again next weekend. Congrats to all of our kids.

Squirts

Squirts Place Second in Twin Oaks League Finals

It was a building season for the Watchung Hills Jr. Warriors Squirts, with only two returning players at the beginning of the 2018-2019 season. That didn’t deter this rookie team. It was their hard work and enthusiasm that took them to Saturday’s championship game where they faced the Colts.

Although the Warriors lost with a final score of 8-2, they can hold their heads high for a great season.

Squirts

Squirts Advance to Finals

The Watchung Hills Jr. Warriors Squirts Hockey headed into Monday night’s playoff game against the Swamprats determined and confident. The mood in the Twin Oaks locker room was energetic and it showed when the team got on the ice.

Tough defense led the way with Kayden Thursfield-Ritchie (Warren) playing strong in net. The Warriors scored the game’s first goal with eight minutes left in the first period. Sylie Sawale (Bridgewater) got the puck on defense and, seeing an opening, took it in to give the Warriors a 1-0 lead.

With just two minutes left in the first, Holden Flynn (Gillette) saw an opening and took it. With another Warriors breakaway, he scored on a tough Swamprats goalie giving the Warriors a 2-0 lead. These would be the only two goals the Warriors would see.

In the second period, the Swamprats scored one goal in to make it a 2-1 Warriors game. From then on it was all defense. With Carolyn Jasaitis (Warren), Sylie Sawale, and Jackson Fleming (Basking Ridge) on defense for the Warriors and Kayden Thursfield-Ritchie playing the game of his life the Swamprats couldn’t get through.

The Warriors finished the game with an outstanding 2-1 win and head to the Twin Oaks League championship game on Saturday, March 16 at 10:15 AM against the Colts.
