Accomplishments: The team played in a C-level tournament this past week at St. Sebastian’s School in Needham. They played three games, winning two and losing one, and advanced to the championship game on Sunday.
The big game was against Natick, the team they had lost to in the tournament. After three periods, the teams had tied at 1-1 and the game went into overtime. The boys were playing 4-on-4 when a penalty was called on the Triboro team. A penalty against the Natick team evened the ice at 3-on-3. It was then that a Triboro player scored the winning goal, giving the team a 2-1 win. It was an exciting way to end the season.
Key to Awesomeness: These boys show what can be done with practice, determination and team spirit. Congratulations on a great season!
