Less than one week ago, the VJW Junior A team knocked off the third-seeded Connecticut Oilers in the first round of EHL Playoffs. The season came to an end this past weekend, but congrats to the Warriors on an impressive and headline-drawing end to the season.
The VJW ’00 Elites claimed its third straight NEHL title with a 5-3 win over the Wizards. This past season, the Warriors posted a 24-3-3 regular-season record and scored 145 goals while allowing just 64 goals. The team ended the season as the No. 21 team in the nation.
The VJW '03 Elites posted two impressive playoff wins to capture both the NEHL regular season and playoff titles. In its last 26 games, the Warriors posted an undefeated 25-0-1 record and a 47-7-2 record for the 2013-14 season.
The VJW ’02 Selects were simply outstanding in league play dating back to September and proved that they were indeed the best team in the ’02 National North Division. The Warriors finished the regular season with a division-best 23-4-3 record.
Now that the Sochi Olympics have concluded, it's time to send out a big congratulations to VJW Alum Alex Carpenter who represented Team USA on the women's ice hockey team. Carpenter posted four goals and one assist in five games for Team USA.
Tryouts for the new season continue this week with sessions being held for Squirt Major through Bantam Major in Haverhill. Players at the Mite through Bantam Major Levels have the option of trying out for the Select or Elite teams at their age level.
Beginning next season, the Valley Jr. Warriors will compete in the Elite 9 Hockey League. As one of six charter members, the E9 will feature the top 9 Tier I Elite teams in New England and provide the program with the highest level of competition in the North East.
