The New Jersey Colonials hosted it’s Stars & Stripes 3v3 Tournament on December 28, 2017 at Mennen Sports Arena in Morristown, NJ. Eight teams participated and 2 winners were crowned champions. Congratulations Division 1 Winner, 007 and Division 2 Winner, Enforcers!
The teams spent the morning in pool play and were then seeded for the Championship bracket. The pool games were highlighted by 2 entertaining and competitive games. Team 007 and Jedi started the day skating to a 5-5 barn burning draw. Team Jedi was once again in the middle of furious action when Mojo tallied on a last second rush to even the score 6-6.
The Division 1 final saw 007 jump out to a quick lead. The Colonials Squirt Minors mounted a furious comeback but 007 held on for the 7-5 win. Congratulations 007! The consolation game saw the Jedi use the force to overcome Mojo.
The Division 2 final crowned the tournament’s only all girl team champions. The Enforcers won 4-3 in dramatic fashion over the Union Thunder with a stopped penalty shot in the final seconds. The consolation game was another tight match as Roxbury emerged 3-2 winners over CMM.
Thanks to all our teams and players for a great day of hockey! A very special thank you to our sponsor Breakaway Hockey for providing apparel and awards.
