West 16U team recap

West 16U Weekly Recap September 28 thru October 4


This was a very much improved week for West. To begin with, some of West’s key players returned after being injured. Fortunately we had them back as Saturday’s game against Metro Northeast 16U was riddled with penalties on both sides. It was the third time these two teams have met, and for the second time the game ended in a 3-3 tie. It was an evenly matched and hard fought game. West went into the resurfacing with a 3-2 lead, but unfortunately was unable to see the back of the net the rest of the game. Northeast ended up scoring a power play goal to even the score and that is how it ended.


West’s second game was a rematch with Team Wisconsin. The game started out evenly matched with both teams scoring a goal early. The scored was tied 2-2 by the resurfacing. It was a slow start to the second half of the game but then West started to score. Team Wisconsin scored their 3rd goal of the game but after that it was all West. West scored quickly and often, pressing hard in Wisconsin’s zone and causing turnovers. West also controlled the puck and didn’t turn it over. The final score was 7-3 in a much needed victory. Overall West received 3 of 4 possible points to maintain its position in the standing. West has a tough challenge on Thursday when it meets Shattuck’s Midget AAA team. They are undefeated against the Elite D teams but West is determined to end their streak.
