The Northeast Selects were able to pull out a win in the semi finals in a very competitive game to setup a finals match-up against the Boston Selects (’04 Flames Elite team).
Both teams fought hard and moved the puck well skating to a 1-1 tie after 2 periods of play. However the Boston Selects, led by Joe Connor, scored 2 goals midway through the 3rd and defeated the Northeast Selects.
The boys had a lot of fun on and off the ice playing with players from 8 different winter teams and making new friends along the way all while playing some competitive hockey.
