Andover, MA - The Boston Lady Whalers invaded the CCM Boston Girls Invite this past weekend, and our 2003 Elite, 2006 Elite and 2008 Elite teams walked away with the hardware!

The 2008 Elite Team made their Lady Whalers debut in their inaugural tournament, diving right into the action with the teams' first event being one of the most challenging events in the United States.  The 08's pieced together a perfect 3-0 Round Robin record, defeating Premier Hockey, Leprechauns Elite, and the CT Jr. Rangers.  After earning a bye for the Quarter Final round, the 2008 Elite Team was set up with a tough draw in the semi-finals against a strong Team Inspire group.  The 2008 Elites skated away with a 3-0 win, and were set to face off in a much anticpated matchup against the Long Island Gladiators for all of the marbles.  In a hard fought title match, the 2008 Elite came away victorious with a thrilling 3-2 win.  Congratulations to coaches Alison Kennedy, Emily Field, Michaela Boyle, Alyssa Gagliardi, and the 2008 Boston Lady Whalers on their first of many to come!

The 2006 Elite Team had a great weekend, capped off by a thrilling win Championship win on Sunday afternoon.  After defeating Premier Hockey and Leprechauns Elite with ease on Friday, the 2006 Elites breezed past the big Dogs 5-0 to cap off their Round Robin run without letting up a goal.  On Sunday, the girls defeated the Boston Lightning by a score of 3-0 and set up a Boston Lady Whalers versus Long Island Gladiators back-to-back Championship Game matchup following the conclusion of the 2008 Championship.  Our 2006 Elite Team emerged as Champions, after digging out a hard-fought 1-0 win.  Congrats to coaches Dana Trivigno and Emily Field, and all of our players on their first Championship of 2018, and for being crowned back to back CCM Boston Girls Invite Champs after defeating the Maplesoft Hawks in 4OT for the title in 2017!

The 2003 Elite Team continued rolling this spring, coming into the weekend fresh off of a 2018 Shamrock Girls Invite Championship in April.  Though their record wasn't flawless this time around, our girls defeated the EJ Selects and Team New England after falling to the NH Knights in the weekend opener, which earned them the #2 Seed in the pool heading into the playoffs.  After defeating the East Coast Selects in a thrilling 3-2 Semi-Final game, the 2003 Elite Team got the best of the Leprechauns Elite in 2OT, bringing home the third trophy of the day for the Lady Whalers, and the second in as many tries this spring for the 2003 Elite Team.  Congratulations to coach Toni Ann Miano and the 2003 Elite Boston Lady Whalers, and good luck next month as they am to complete the 2018 sweep at the Blue Line Elite Girls Showcase!

Congratulations to all of our champions, as well as the rest of our teams on terrific weekends.  The 2007 Elite, 2005 Elite, and U19 Elite Teams all came up just short in the finals, the 2004 Elites bowed out in the semi-finals, and our U17 & U16 Teams showed well all weekend!  Great job girls!
