Welcome to the Woodbridge Community Center Adult Hockey League Power Rankings: These rankings will be released on a weekly basis, and will take into account wins and losses, strength of schedule and number of games played.
Power Rankings for the week ending Friday, 9/23
Now that all of our teams have at least one game under their belt, we can say without bias that ODB is the #1 team in the adult league right now. They won their 2 games by a combined score of 29-9, and have played superb hockey in the process. Their first true test of the season will come when they play OTJ in the first of four matchups this season.
2. The Finest
Last fall's defending champions are looking good early in the season, starting out 2-0 with a pair of one-goal wins over the Rhinos and Buk Hockey. Strong goaltending has The Finest in good shape defensively, but their offense has been the story, as they have gone goal-for-goal with every team they've come up against this season.
Another unbeaten team, the RufNex have looked solid in their first two games with a regulation win over Buk Hockey and a shootout victory against the Thundercats. It has been a team effort for the RufNex so far, as this scrappy group looks ahead to a good season when their full team gets healthy.
Though the Aces play in the C South, they have a 2-0 start under their belt with two high-scoring wins over the Misfits. Scoring 15 goals over two games, the Aces' offense is no joke, and if their defense can hold up their end of the bargain and get a few key saves from their goaltender, this team has the potential go all the way.
Rounding out the first top 5 rankings of the season, the Bulldogs are the final unbeaten team in the league, also residing in the C South. With a goal differential of +9, they sit second in that category and have the offense to stretch that differential out even farther. Defense and goaltending are not lacking on this team either, and when they meet the Aces for the first time this season, we could be in for a great hockey game.
Check back next Friday for an updated ranking from across the WCC Adult Hockey League!
After a long and exciting season, the Spring 2016 Adult League is finally in the books. In the North, perennial powerhouse OTJ won their second consecutive championship, defeating ODB in a physical affair. Marc Malone tallied yet another hat-trick for ODB, but they could not overcome OTJ's six different goal scorers. Goalie Kevin Ryan also put in an impressive performance in net to help lead his team to victory.
In the South Division, the surprise finalist Bulldogs won a double-OT thriller, defeating Sharknado 5-4. Alidad Mireskandari and Bill Mondano both tallied in the win, with Joe Ursino stopping all but 4 in goal. Sharknado received a pair of goals from captain Joe Muzikar, but it was not enough.
Congratulations to OTJ and the Bulldogs on their championships!
The Rangers got three different goal scorers and a shutout from Brayden Vargo in net to defeat the Devils 3-0 and win the 2016 Spring Ironman championship. The Devils made it to the ultimate game following a shutout of their own, defeating the Flyers 2-0. Goals by Christian Kokalenios and Matteo Manieri (his first goal of the year), combined with an impressive shutout by Brianna Vargo in goal, helped propel the Devils into their final showdown against the Rangers.
The championship game was intense right from the opening drop of the puck. The Rangers scored first on a goal by Thomas Conti, then got insurance from Ryan Zwiebel. An empty net goal in the final seconds by Jake Sendich sealed the win and the Cup for the Rangers.
Congratulations to all of our teams on a fantastic season, and a big congratulations to the Rangers for winning the Championship!
The UNH Wildcats are champions of the Fall/Winter 2016 16U division after an 8-2 win over Ohio State. 2 goals by Blake Matthew and a 3-point performance from Ethan Lim led UNH to victory, while Dalton Tango made 20 saves in net for the win. Ohio State kept it close all game, but a 4-goal third period by the Wildcats proved too much for the Buckeyes, who got 38 saves from Michael Gorzynski in the loss.
Congratulations to UNH on winning the league championship!
Winter 2016 8U East-Jamboree
Winter 2016 8U East-Champions Devils
Winter 2016 8U West-Jamboree
Winter 2016 8U West-Boston Champions
The Boston University won the Winter 2016 12U Championship with a thrilling 5-3 victory over the Quinnipiac Bobcats. Nicholas Squasich led the way for Boston with two goals and an assist, with Ryan Lobur adding two goals and Robert Russo also tallying for BU. A hat trick for Quinnipiac's Raymond Obolsky, including a goal in the last minute of the third period, was not enough to complete the comeback. Giovanni Facchini (Quinnipiac) and Christopher Tripodi (Boston) both gave outstanding performances in goal, with both netminders making over 20 saves in their respective efforts.
Congratulations to both teams on a fantastic season, and a big congratulations to Boston for winning the championship!
