Playoff Update

Mar 6, 2014

Playoff hockey is in full swing and the Titans have three teams continuing the fight to extend their respective seasons. The U14 Lady Titans are in Aston, PA this weekend just three games away from a Nationals berth.  The girls face off today at 3:30 PM versus the Hershey Bears, followed by the Delco Phantoms and the NJ Colonials on Saturday and Sunday. The big line of Brianna Haviland, Rebecca Foggia, and Jess DeVito look to lead the girls to a weekend sweep and a trip to USA Hockey Tier II Nationals in Hackensack, NJ April 2-6. Just up the road in Scranton, PA the U16 National team faces off against three tough opponents in their quest for a Nationals berth.  First up for the National team is recent foe, the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Knights. Losing to them in overtime last week at the league playoffs, the National teams is seeking revenge tomorrow morning. It is a double header for the U16s tomorrow as they take on the Knights in the morning and the NJ Devils in the evening. Their third opponent will be the Philadelphia Junior Flyers on Sunday. If the National team can emerge from this weekend of games they will head to West Chester, PA next weekend to take on top seed Team Comcast in a best of three series for the district championship. 

Travel a few hours south on I-95 to find our Met League team in a first round series against the Richmond Generals. The Generals come into the series as the Top seed in the division and winners of eight straight games. The Titans on the other hand have won their last three, including the play-in playoff game versus the Central Penn Panther last weekend. The Met League Titans will look to Todd Unger, William Dovenero, and Andrew Yasenchock to lead them up front. Dominic De La Guardia, Matthew Moore, and Trevor Ralph will lead the back end for the Titans. The Met League Championship trophy is called the Keegan Cup, every Titans player is striving to put our team in a position to take that Championship; maybe even more so this year than any other year, as our own Middletown Ice World is the host of the Keegan Cup Championship round. March 20-23 the four remaining teams in the Met League playoffs travel to Middletown to face off for the Keegan Cup.
