Jason Rose posted 17 saves in goal and 15th-seeded Garnet Valley stunned host and second-seeded Central Bucks East, 7-6, today in the second round of the District 1 AAA tournament.

The Jaguars (12-8) took a 6-5 lead when Jake Morin (2G, 3A) scored late in the third period. Bryce Stansfield (2G) made it 7-5 in the fourth and, after East pulled within 7-6 on Ryan Stout’s second goal with 1:24 to play, the Jags’ defense held on.

Garnet Valley advances to the District 1 quarterfinals where it will face 10th-seeded Perkiomen Valley, an 8-4 winner over North Penn.

“We love to embrace the underdog role,” said Rose, a 2019 committed to the US Air Force Academy. “This year people counted us out after we graduated a lot of good seniors. We wanted to prove them wrong.”

Mitch Lachman added two goals and Danny Bradley a goal and two assists for the Jags.

Rose – who had 8 saves in the final period – said his defense was the key.

“It was all defense this week,” he said “We knew our offense could put in enough goals to get us the win. Defense was the focus. We played three defenses and all were good.”

Rose, the First-Team All-Central League goalie, said he was happy for the challenge.

“Yeah, seeing that it was do or die, I wasn’t going to let that be my last game,” he said.

What will it take for Garnet Valley to keep advancing?

“We just have to hone in during practice,” said Rose. “We made a lot of mistakes during the game so we have a lot to work on.”
