Squirt 1/2 Combo Champions at Turkey Day Classic

The Jr. Maples Squirt 1/2 Combo team took home the Championship at the Turkey Day Classic in Woburn over Thanksgiving weekend. The team fought hard in the first game, coming up just short against a tough 10U Devils Black team from Attleboro.

The Jr. Maples did not let that first loss set the tone for Saturday. They regrouped the next day, beating Woburn 2-0 in the morning game. They were scrappy against the hometown squad, fighting for every puck, creating scoring opportunities and playing tight defense. They were helped between the pipes by some incredible saves by #88 Kaden McGeoghegan. After a long afternoon break the Jr. Maples came out flying for their evening game against Chelmsford, this time with rookie goalie, Luke McDonald, in the net. Another impressive defensive performance and a hat trick by #30 Jacoby Wilson, wrote the Jr. Maples ticket to the Championship game on Sunday morning. 

Sunday found the Jr. Maples facing the undefeated 10U Devils Black team team for the title. It was a rematch that our little team was looking forward to. The Devils jumped out in front with an early first period goal, but after that the Jr. Maples settled down to play a great game of hockey. McGeoghegan was a brick wall in the net. The defense shut down the Devils scoring opportunities and #14 Jack Pappas and #30 Jacoby Wilson found the back of the Devils' net 3 times between them to take home the trophy. The final score was 3-1. Congratulations to this scrappy little squad!
