Canton, MA - The Boston Lady Whalers U12 & Over-22 teams entered the 2018 Harrow Invite on Friday morning, and walked away victorious on Sunday afternoon as champions.

After falling 4-2 in the opening game on Friday to the Leprechauns, the Boston Lady Whalers U12 Premier team was able to refocus, and turn the tables on the rest of the weekend.  Saturday was highlighted by two wins over the East Coast Miltiia and Premier Selects by scores of 7-2 and 4-1, respectively.  At 2-1, the U12's earned the #2 Seed in the Sunday semi-finals playoff match, where they skated past the Premier Selects by a score of 2-0, setting up a rematch in which they hoped to avaenge an early loss to the Leprechauns.  The Lady Whalers came out flying, scoring in the first shift of the game, and not looking back.  The U12's took the Championship Game by a score of 4-1, as resilience and determination were the keys to the weekend as they were crowned as Champions.

In the debut of our Boston Lady Whalers Over-22 Team, coaches Dana Trivigno, Emily Field, and Michaela Boyle helped pace the squad to the second program title of the weekend.  There was a lot of jumping back and forth from coaching to playing for our staff, and both teams emerged as winners at the end of the weekend.  The Over-22's kicked off the weekend with an 8-4 win over the Leprechauns White on Friday afternoon.  After falling 5-4 to Leprechauns Green on Saturday morning, the team rebounded by defeating the East Coast Militia 8-6 on Saturday evening.  The Over-22's skated past the Militia again in the semi-finals 7-3, setting up an exciting finale matchup against the Leprechauns Green.  After falling behind 5-1 in the final 8 minutes of play, the Boston Lady Whalers Over-22 Team scored 4 goals in the final 8 minutes of play, forcing overtime, and sealing the deal in the extra frame, winning the finals 6-5!  

The Boston Lady Whalers Over-22 Team was led by Boston Lady Whalers coaches Dana Trivigno (Boston Pride NWHL), Emily Field (Boston Pride NWHL), Michaela Boyle (Clarkson University), and Brittany Ott (Boston Pride NWHL); additionally, current professional players Jordan Smelker (Boston Pride NWHL) and Mallory Souliotis (Boston Pride NWHL) were key contributors in the offense, and the roster was rounded out by current college stars Gillis Frechette (Cornell University), Finley Frechette (Cornell University), Savannah Norcross (Boston College), Rachel Moore (Boston College), Sammy Davis (Boston University), Micaela Sindoris (Northeastern University), and Devan Taylor (University of New Hampshire).
