Regular season games are played from the first weekend in September through the end of October. Playoffs start the first weekend in November. Bob Lavin (Acton/Boxborough Varsity Head Coach) is coaching the U16's and Rian "Muzz" Murray (Arlington HS Standout and Assumption College Player) is coaching the U18's. Good Luck boys!
The 2004(E)'s come up just short of winning the Providence Columbus Day Tournament. After 5 hard fought match ups, the Squirt Major's beat teams from the EHF and NJ to clinch the 1 seed but fell short 5-3 in the Championship game vs. the other undefeated 2 seed NH Avalanche. The 2004(E)'s will look to bounce back in the Warrior Thanksgiving Tournament.
The 06' Elites posted a strong 3-1-1 record at the EHF Columbus Day Tournament in Rhode Island! On Friday, the boys drew the host Providence Capitals and were up to the task posting a 6-4 victory. Saturday brought an afternoon tilt vs. the Boston Junior Terriers and a 7-7 tie. The South Shore Kings were next on Sunday and with a 6-1 win they knew a win vs. the Boston Junior Eagles on Sunday night would advance them to the Semifinals. In an emotionally charged affair the boys rolled to a 9-3 victory and secured the #2 seed advancing to the semi finals. The run would end Monday morning with an 8-1 loss to Hampton Lady of NY. Congrats on a very fun and successful first tournament of the year boys!!
Starting in the 2014 season, PATRIOTS Hockey will be part of the Elite 9 and Boston Hockey League (BHL). The E9 were formed with 6 charter members (who got together on their own and formed) and will consist of the Seacoast Spartans, New Hampshire Avalanche, East Coast Wizards, Boston Advantage, Boston Jr Rangers and Valley Jr Warriors – plus the 3 top teams at each age level from the Boston Hockey League (BHL).
Affiliate members will participate in the Boston Hockey League and will compete in the BHL’s September Parity Play-In Tournament to determine which 3 teams from the BHL at each age level will be placed into the Elite 9. An automatic bid into the Elite 9 for the 2014-15 season will be awarded to any team that wins the 2013-14 NEHL American Conference Regular Season Title. The affiliate members are PATRIOTS Hockey, Worcester Jr. Sharks, Northern Cyclones, Green Mtn. Glades, Advantage Ice, RI Saints, Springfield Rifles, Lovell Knights, and Pro Ambitions Panthers.
Congratulations to the PATRIOTS 2006, 2005, & 2004 Elite teams who earned automatic bids for into the Elite 9 for next season. The BHL will be split into 2 Tiers – American and National Conferences – in order to offer the highest degree of parity for all teams and programs in the league. Conference seeding for the 2014-15 BHL Season, will also be based upon the BHL September Parity Play-In Tournament results.
Developing hockey players from the youngest ages is a receipe for success. The 2004's, 2005's, and 2006's won the NEHL American Regular Season Championship this year. The 2004's were a finalist in the NEHL Amercian Championships while the 2005's and 2006's won their NEHL American Championsips. The 2004's have won the American Regular Season Championship the last 3 years and have been Champs once and a finalist the two other years. The 2005's have won the American Regular Season and NEHL American Championship each of the last two years. The 2006's first championship is hopefully the start of continued success. PATRIOTS Hockey is very much focused on building and developing teams for success and hockey players at all age levels. The 2004 Selects were finalists, the 1999's, 2000's, and 2002's were semi-finalists, and the 2001's qualified for the championships. Looking ahead, we are excited to get the 2007's started and to improve all of our hockey teams and players in 2014-15.
