Rifles/Wizards

Does anyone know why both these programs have top midget programs but their youth programs are below average?

Re: Rifles/Wizards

Yes, because they grab prep school kids coming into the area and need a team to play in the split season. They are basically summer tournament teams. Absolutely have had nothing to do with 80% of these kids up until now.

Re: Rifles/Wizards

geography. for wiz, many prep schools close. schools dont get out until later, so players have to play for team that they can get to in time for practice.

1 hr one way commutes to practice so timmys mom and dad can say he is fed elite ends.

Re: Rifles/Wizards

Geographic for Springfield as well, Rifles Midgets are a feeder program for Pope Francis.

Re: Rifles/Wizards

Like last year, I expect them not to be challenged by the weaker prep teams in eastern and Western Mass. proved themselves as top prep team in country last year. Sums it up

Re: Rifles/Wizards

What are “prep teams” according to you? If a school has prep in its name is it a prep? St. Johns prep or Austin prep are preps in your world? What about Salisbury, Avon, Lawrence, Belmont hill, Exeter? Did Pope play those teams last year in their run up to a “national championship?” What about dexter? How’s that game go?

Not worth the trip up to an Exeter or an Andover to pound them. As far as Dx goes, everyone in the rink those cold Feb / March nights knew that Pope wasn’t playing their big dogs and were saving their horses for the title run. Hard, I know to admit it but PF won Nattys. Executed the plan quite well as designed. Played the 2nd and 3rd liners against the Dexters of the world to get them reps for the natty trip. Job well done, we are the champions, I believe this song was playing at the parade outside the Olympia upon the champions return to the hockey hot bed of Massachusetts
