End of Run

The CHA Junior B Penguins\’ season ended this past weekend with two playoff losses at the hands of the Mass Maple leafs. This weekend marked the 8th & 9th meeting of the teams this season in both tournament and regular season play. The Pens came out on the short end posting a 2-7 record against the older more experienced Mass team.

In a closing email to the team, Coach Taibi wrote \”Despite many of you having no junior experience and facing all the adversity that we had this year, you kept your focus on becoming better players, a better team, and making the playoffs.  You succeeded in all three when many would have thrown in the towel.  Comparing our first weekend in Detroit to our team in February/March, even Stevie Wonder would be able to see the how much you improved individually and as a team.\”

Best of luck to both the Empire team and the Junior Selects as they head to Nationals.
