Blak Widow Select won the 2021/2022 AA Bracket last weekend at the Victory Events Fall Classic, claiming the title in double overtime at the Delaware Turf Sports Complex.
Blak Widow won the crown over PA Roughriders Select as Jon Oberholtzer (Exeter Twp, 2021) fed Ryan Corros (Twin Valley, 22) for a step-down sudden victory.
Comprised of players from Reading, Allentown, Lancaster, Carlisle, and northern and southern NJ, Blak Widow went 4-0 over the day with Pool Play wins over Phantoms AA, Team Maryland Select, and 302 Elite.
BW Select outscored opponents, 28-8, and had impressive performances all over the field.
Nate Herbster (Cumberland Valley, ‘22), Caden Blandford (Governor Mifflin, ‘22) and Jon Oberholtzer led the attack. Matt Stitzel (Wilson West-Lawn, ‘22) was a stand-out at the face-off X, winning the majority of his draws. At midfield, Trey Rock (Governor Mifflin, ‘22), Connor Gundersen (Berks Catholic, ‘21) and Dylan Garber (Wilson, ‘22) were standouts as two-way middies.
At LSM, Wes Prentiss (Wilson) led the transition game while Jackson Erway (Cumberland Valley, ‘22) and Alex Hatalsky (Wilson, 22) led a physical defense. Goaltender, Chris Dindino (Peddie School, 2021) made huge saves in pool play, and doorstep stops in overtime of the championship game.
Coach Derek Stump (Albright, ‘17) was cited for braving the elements and earning BW GOAT of the Weekend.
