The Massachusetts Premier Development Hockey League (MPDHL)
hosted championship Sunday as the league’s top 4 teams competed for the
league title in Hyannis. The 2-seeded Patriots bested the 3-seeded Northstars 5-
1 in the 1pm semifinals en route to a 7pm showdown with the top-seeded
Springfield Rifles, whom they defeated 6-1 to capture the league crown.
Going into the weekend, the Patriots were a combined 1-3 versus their
two opponents, but found a way to outscore them 11-2 in the playoff format.
Coach Murray credited the team’s chemistry and collective compete-level for the
turnaround, saying, “The first thing I said during try-outs was that I was looking
for competitors. And that was on display in spades today. This is a remarkable
group of young men who really came together as team, played for each other,
and earned this. Coach Phillips and I had a blast coaching these guys and we’re
very proud to be associated with them.”
Leading the offensive explosion in the two games were Jimmy Connelly (3
goals, 2 assists), Kyle Maxwell and Tom Connolly (2-goals, 1-assist), and Pete
Simeone (4-assists). Charles McKelvey (1-goal, 2-assists) paced a stout
defensive corps and Cam Kessler and Blake Alber were outstanding in net,
combining to allow only 2-goals against.
The Patriots U18 team was made up of players from Chelmsford, Lincoln-
Sudbury, Waltham, Wayland, and Framingham. Several of the team’s players will
serve as captains for their respective high school teams this upcoming season,
including Derek Adamson and Charles McKelvey (Chelmsford), Eric Holden
(Lincoln-Sudbury), Pete Simeone (Waltham), and Jake Brady (Wayland).
The Patriots U18 finish their season with a record of 15-8-2.
