I am very excited to share with everyone that JV-Murphy has won our first championship of the season! They won their first three games of the tournament by a combined score of 15-0. They battled through fatigue (haven't had a practice in over two months), and won their semi final game in a shootout. Noah Loch scored the game winner in the shootout and Anthony DaSilva stopped all five opportunities to secure the victory. In the championship game they went down 0-1 early, but never gave up and earned an exciting victory over the host team, 3-1!
I was able to watch all six games and couldn't be prouder of this group of players and coaches. Their effort, teamwork, and determination are qualities all teams strive for. I loved that we had contributions from freshmen, seniors, players that were originally on JV2 to start the year, players that have played up on varsity a few games, and everything in between. In a year where COVID has taken so much from us, I am glad that this special group of players was able to overcome and celebrate this victory.
Last, but not least, I would like to thank the coaches, especially Coach Murphy. His dedication to this group of players and this organization is above and beyond.
