Looks like a good turnout for Wizz Columbus day tourney. Who you got?
Columbus is canceled in Bedford. It’s indigenous peoples day
Surprised Lovell didn't jump in. 5 top 10 teams is a good measuring stick.
Lovell not allowed to be invited by ECW. NEGHL rules limiting competition; but its all about the kids.
What is the ECW
East Coast Wizards
Lovell has the U14 girls teams that are the top 12th & 16th in the country. They are 4th & 5th ranked in the state. Why wouldn’t they want teams like that in their tournament? Instead they travel across the country to play competition.
4.10 NEGHL programs will not schedule events with Non-NEGHL programs (events includes but is not limited to games, scrimmages and jamborees). Additionally, NEGHL Programs will not host Non-NEGHL Programs in NEGHL Program Sponsored Tournaments. This does not apply to Non-NEGHL teams from outside the New England District and Massachusetts District. Also, this does not apply when teams are required by their district to play a team for District or Regional Tournament qualification purposes. Fines of $500 for first offense and $1,000 second & subsequent offenses may be levied.
Won't be able to play at States this year as well. NAHA was the big hurrah I guess as far as competition. Maybe at one of the non sanctioned Thanksgiving tournaments the top MA teams can all line up?
Wizards team is stacked because it's primarily girls who are now in MA/CT for prep school from all over the country. Don't know where most of the girls from their 08/u14 Tier II team last year went. They also arguably have two of the best 09s in the country on their team. Look at their stats, those two players scored almost 50% of all team goals this weekend. Hard team to beat!
