BOSTON, MA -- As the EHLP Division heads into a quiet week because of Thanksgiving, the North and South Conferences are following two very different scripts. The North Conference has been a tight race between arguably all eight teams since the start of the season, while the South Conference has been the Revolution and the Jr. Flyers, and then everyone else. With all 15 teams in action this past weekend, there were plenty of worthy candidates for our weekly honors.
We're pleased to announce that Adam Czarnecki (Valley Jr. Warriors), Brendan Boncore (Boston Bandits), and Malcolm Cardwell (Boston Bandits) have been named the EHLP Stars of the Week.
Also, this week's EHLP Team of the Week is the Boston Bandits.
Before we start breaking down this week's award winners, we would like to take a moment to give our thoughts and prayers to Mick Deaver.
On Friday night in New Jersey, Boston Bandits forward Mick Deaver suffered a serious injury to his spine. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help his parents with their hotel costs, to transport him home after he is stable, physical therapy, and many other expenses. Please take the time to donate and help spread the word ---www.gofundme.com/MickDeaver
Czarnecki and the Warriors split their weekend games in Pennsylvania. Valley is 11-6-1 this season, and their 23 points puts them in a tie for fourth place in the North Conference.
Czarnecki's seven-point weekend, keeps him ranked 2nd on the team in scoring with 25 points in his first 13 games. After being held off the scoresheet for three straight games, the '97 forward has 20 points in his last seven games. Czarnecki will look to continue to lead the charge when the Warriors return to face-off with the Lehigh Valley Jr. Rebels on December 3rd, and the New York Applecore on December 4th.
Boncore and the Bandits swept their four games this past weekend, and improved their overall record to 13-3-0 for the season. The Bandits 26 points puts them in sole possession of 3rd place in the North Conference, with games in hand on both teams ahead of them.
Boncore split up the games evenly with Ben Jenkins, as both goalies got a pair of starts over the weekend. With the pair of victories, Boncore improves his record to 8-2-0 for the season with a 1.95 GAA and 1 shutout. The Michigan native will look to help keep the Bandits rolling, when they face-off with the New England Wolves tomorrow night in Laconia.
While Boncore anchored the team between the pipes, Cardwell led the team on offense this past weekend.
Cardwell's seven-point weekend included the game-winner on Friday night. The Georgia native has now only been held off the scoresheet five times this season, and currently ranks 3rd on the team with 19 points in his first 16 games.
This week's EHLP Team of the Week is the Boston Bandits.
The Bandits took a road trip South this past weekend, and played four games in four straight days. Boston grabbed the win in all four games and outscored their opponents 30-6 along the way.
The Bandits will look to their extend their winning streak to eight games when they face-off with the New England Wolves tomorrow night in Laconia.
We've got a good one on the schedule tonight as the Philadelphia Revolution play host to the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers at 7:15pm!
