The Ridley 8th graders won the Lax Max U15 Travel division held last weekend in Westminster, MD.
Ridley beat the Lumberjack, 4-3, with 10 seconds left in overtime to win the championship. Ridley lost to the Lumberjacks the previous day, 6-5, but in the championship got great faceoff and wing play from Nick Falcucci and Dom Pisselli while neutralizing one of the Lumberjack’s strengths at the X.
Jake Bosak was strong in goal, making many key saves down the stretch. The attack of Gavin Kingsborough, George Wills and Blaise Harris pressured the Lumberjack defensemen, but the opposing goalie was very quick frustrating the Ridley offense.
After a timeout in the defensive end, coach Matt Flynn drew up a clear that worked perfectly, and Dom Piselli found Gavin Kingsborough on the doorstep as time ran down who buried the shot for the win.
Rounding out the Ridley squad was Josh Hagan, Jacob Berhle, Jimmy Reynolds, Evan Zappone, David Barclift, Nate Sheeran, Jesse Robinson, Joseph McNamara and Gabe Noel who all contributed to the title.
