Ashburn Rebels: The Rebels have played solidly in all of their games this season. Graydon Powers and Travis Brecht have led the way in goal-scoring, but John Ripke, Brodie DeVelli, and Henry Povlich have done a great job getting them the puck in prime scoring areas. Ashburn has been solid on the defensive side as well with only 11 goals-against in their four match-ups.
Patriot Selects: With only one game of AHF action, the Selects have shown the ability to move the puck around, with six players notching a point in the game– Patrick Knox, Justin Jackson, and Connor McGovern having a multi-point. On top of that, they only surrendered one goal, which shows they don’t skimp on the defensive side of the puck.
West Chester Wolverines: Things may have not been easy for the Wolverines, but they’ve stuck to it and kept grinding. Maksim Soumis, Jacob Cleaver, Joey Gilbert, Archie Strode, and Connor Oddo all have registered points for the team. They have kept to their game plan and played hard, showing the spirit of the game when they’re on the ice.
Hollydell Selects: Hollydell has played two tight games under the AHF banner. Roman Weed (3g, 1a) and Joseph Mastalski (1g, 2a) have shown off their offensive prowess, while Elvis Settlemyre has held his own between the pipes. With more games in this showcase to come, Hollydell will surely have many more players ready to get on the scoresheet and have a successful weekend.
Three New Competitors: This Showcase also welcomes three new competitors who haven’t played in the AHF this season. Hard Edge Selects, Aspen Aviators, and Pennsauken Pilots join in on the party this weekend, which should add to the solid competition we’ve seen already in the Mite B Division.
