SQUIRT MINORS PLAYED FOR CHAMPIONSHIP IN JW KENNEDY TOURNEY

WARWICK, RI, JANUARY 13-16, 2017--
The Squirt Minors had an exciting weekend, with a quarter-final triple overtime win at the John W. Kennedy Tournament,  on Sunday, January 15. 


Monday morning's sem-final 8 AM win, was just as exciting, as the Squirts tied the game, with 3.9 seconds left in the third!  The team went into a 5 minute OT, 4 on 4, notching a 3-2 victory.  The OT win ensured a berth in Monday afternoon's Championship Game,  against the NY Saints.  

The boys fought hard against their opponents, but could not overcome the Saints 3 unanswered goals, for  the gold.  None the less, our Squirts had a great run!  Congratulations, boys, on bringing  home the silver!

The Wessex Wire, Melanie Montes, December 2, 2016--Society has always told boys and girls to stick to what they’re supposed to do. People may always say how girls shouldn’t be allowed on the football team because it’s an all-boys sport, or boys should get rid of the dream of being a professional ballet dancer because it’s a “girl thing.”

BANTAM MAJOR, COLE VALLESE COMMITS TO PROVIDENCE COLLEGE, CLASS

Congratulations to Colonials 2016 Bantam Major, Cole Vallese, on his commitment to Providence College, Class of 2024. 

 

 “Cole is a slick skating, shifty, play-making forward. He has tremendous acceleration and breakaway speed. He separates himself well from defenders and back checkers. His hands are nifty and he can pivot on a dime. It's been an exciting year coaching Cole. I'm looking forward to the second half of the season with him. He's a great kid who works very hard and has a lot of character,”  according to his coach, NJC Hockey Director Noel Rubin.

 

 Cole stated: “I chose Providence because it is a top contender and has won a national championship, so I don't think I can go wrong there. Under Coach Leaman and his staff, I will develop and compete at the highest level and get a great education. In choosing Providence I know my college experience will be the whole package.”
