Nassau Lions Take Home Three MEHL Titles

This weekend at The Rinx, the Nassau County Hockey program capped off a strong 2017-2018 campaign by capturing three Metro Elite Hockey League (MEHL) Championships.

In the 10U Squirt Major Silver Division, the 9U Nassau Lions (pictured above) defeated PAL 4-2 Sunday afternoon to win the championship. The top-seeded Lions, who went 10-2-2 in Metro League play during the regular season, got by the fourth-seeded Sound Tigers in a Friday night semifinals matchup, 4-3 to advance to Sunday’s Championship Game. The 9U Lions finished runners-up for the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League (EJEPL) Diamond Division Championship.

In the 12U Silver Division, the top-seeded Nassau County U11 Lions (pictured below) defeated Pelham 5-2 Saturday night to take home the 12U MEHL Pee Wee Major Silver Championship. Finishing with a 12-3-1 Metro League record, the Lions defeated a tough Sound Tigers team 2-1 Saturday afternoon to earn their spot to play for the championship. Just two weeks ago, the U11 Lions finished Silver Medalists in the EJEPL 11U Diamond Division.

Capping things off Sunday night for the Nassau County Lions, it was the U13 team (pictured below) dominating the playoff weekend to capture the MEHL 14U Silver Division Championship. In game one against The Rinx, the Lions rolled to a 10-0 win. Hat tricks by Pete Sigalas and Evan Gordon lead the scoring charge, and Mike Sykora picked up the shutout.

It was on to the finals against the Long Island IceCats, and the power play set the tone for the Lions with Spencer Barrow and Kevin Deehan scoring back to back goals with the man advantage in the opening period. It was halfway through the second that the Lions would make it 3-0, but the Ice Cats would answer with a goal that deflected off a Lions player. Lucas Puccia answered the Ice Cats tally just 18 seconds later with a breakaway goal to make it 4-1. Trent Midura and Robbie Francisci each added a goal in the third and Joey Raccioppi picked up the win.

In the 10U Gold Division, the Nassau Lions finished runners-up, falling to North Park 4-0 in the finals. The 10U Lions capped off their regular season with a 6-0-2 record, the two ties coming at the hands of North Park, outscoring the opposition by a 46-5 margin. The 10U Lions qualified for the finals game with an 8-0 shutout win over the Sound Tigers.

12U Lions Capture EJEPL Future Silver Championship in OT

The Nassau County 12U Lions defeated New York Applecore 5-4 in overtime Sunday to win the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League (EJEPL) 12U Future Silver Championship at the Red Bank Armory. The Lions finished their EJ season with a 15-1 record, outscoring the opposition 152-17 over the 16-game campaign.

Getting a first-round bye, the Lions advanced to the semifinals, defeating the Toms River Blackhawks 7-2 to move into the finals. Awaiting the Lions in the finals was the top-seeded New York Applecore team, who defeated the Delco Phantoms 6-2 in the semis to move into the championship game.

The undefeated Applecore team capped off their season with a perfect 16-0 record, one of those victories a 2-0 win over the Lions back in September.

In a back and forth finals game, the two teams went into overtime deadlocked at 4-4, but it was Joseph Marrone picking up the game winner in the OT to give the Lions the win and the 12U Future Silver Championship.

Lions goaltender Keegan Groom was named EJEPL 12U Future Silver MVP, holding off a barrage of shots in the overtime and stopping a penalty shot in regulation.

U9 and U11 Lions Finish Runners-Up in EJ League Playoffs

This past weekend, Nassau County Hockey sent two teams to the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League (EJEPL) Playoffs at Iceworks in Aston, Pa., the U9 and U11 Lions, in Nassau County Hockey’s first year of EJEPL action.

The KRACH rating system was used by the EJEPL to rate teams for playoffs, ranking teams where there is an unbalanced schedule.

Qualifying for the playoffs in the 9U Diamond Division in Aston, U9 Lions finished the season with an overall record of 13-1-0-1 and a final KRATCH Rating of 314.6507. Seeded first in the U9 Diamond Division playoffs, the U9 Lions defeated the Connecticut Chiefs 4-0 to advance to the afternoon’s finals game where they faced the Freeport Arrows. In a tightly-contested finals game, the Arrows edged the Lions 1-0 in overtime to capture the 9U Diamond Division Championship.

In the 11U Diamond Division (pictured above), the 5-9-0-1 Nassau County U11 Lions qualified for the playoffs with a final KRATCH Rating of 52.3925 for the fourth seeded spot. In the semifinals, the U11 Lions drew the LI Rebels, who finished the 2017-2018 season with an overall KRATCH Rating of 332.3268. Despite nearly a 280 points KRATCH differential, it was lower-seeded Lions who defeated the top-seeded Rebels 5-3 in the semifinals game to advance to the afternoon's Finals game. In the 11U Finals, the Lions met the Ramapo Saints, falling 7-0 to the Saints, and finishing as Silver Medalists in the 11U Diamond Division.

This weekend, Feb. 9-11, Nassau County’s 12U Lions will head to the Red Bank Armory in Southern New Jersey where they play for the 12U Future Silver Division Championship.
