Stars & Stripes Tournament Crowns Champions

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.
