Monarch's are a very competitive MPDHL organization in the older age groups. Avalanche are competitive E9/BHL program at the youth age groups. You could do worse than these two programs.
Top Gun has limited teams that are competitive in the EHF. Monarchs and Avs same thing depends on the age level. Some are strong others are week.
Monarchs and Avs have been very good at the 02 and 04 level for a while now . Programs are run pretty well .
In order of rank for those 4 programs this year.
02: Avs, Seacoast, TG, Monarchs
03: TG, Avs, Seacoast, Monarchs
04: Avs, TG, Monarchs, Seacoast
05: TG/AVS, Seacoast, Monarchs
not sure how you can rank Avs better then TG since they beat them every year!
When did they beat them last year?
02's never played, but Avs finished 42 and TG finished 81.
03's didn't play this year, but TG was ranked higher-31 to 58
04's didn't play this year, Avs finished at 31, TG finished at 49
So I would say the original poster was pretty accurate. Not sure what you're talking about.
Monarchs have the better group at the older levels - Bantam and up. Just excepted into the Tier 1 elite league with U14/U15/U16 and U18. One of the best Bantam/Midget leagues in the country.
'04 Avs and TG did play in Salem late in the season, 5-3 TG
When was that? MyHockeyRankings doesn't have it, nor does the Avs website. The Fed doesn't allow scrimmages, and Top Gun never allows their teams to play the Avs unless it's a tourney.
Give us some facts.
It was a scrimmage. Not posted on a website, and I guess nobody who witnessed it reported it to MHR.
Seacoast Spartans Rule!
Monarchs U14/U15/U16/U18 teams all suck. U14 plays tier II hockey. U15 is non-existent, U16 and U18 teams played in the ECEHL (whatever the hell that league is). Yeah, they are better at the older ages.
