The tournament – featuring 12 teams from the Passport Alliance – concludes tomorrow in all classes (2016-19) at Germantown Academy. A smaller youth tourney for the classes of 2020 to 2023 is also being played at nearby Upper Dublin.

Meanwhile, the CT Chargers also stayed perfect at 3-0 after defeating Team Carolina, 7-5. Team Long Island I and Sweetlax (N.Y.) are also 3-0.

The Dukes closed with a 14-1 rout of Team Long Island II and also gained wins over Orange Crush (N.Y.), 8-4, and Evolve, 10-2.

“I think we’re really jelling together this weekend,” said Dukes defenseman Tanner Long (Germantown Academy). “Defensively, we play aggressively and offensively we were moving the ball around and finishing all our shots.”

Long said it was important to win a title in his hometown.

“It will definitely make a statement if we win this, to prove we are one of the top teams in the country,” he said., “We believe that and try to show that every day.

“It’s exciting. It’s our hometown tournament I guess, so we feel right at home.”

The CT Chargers rallied from a 5-4 halftime deficit against Team Carolina as goalie Peter Ripperger (Brien McMahon High) did not allow a second-half goal. The Chargers also downed Evolve (Canada), 11-6, and Twist (PA), 9-2.

“We just want our defense to play strong and our face-off guys controlled it at the X,” said Ripperger. “I think we made a few adjustments and our face-off guys got us possession and we finished the goals.

“It’s good to go undefeated on the first day and go into the playoffs. I like the teams in the tournament and it’s good competition.”
