Awesome Season Ends With A Big Win!

Posted by Barry Marenberg on June 6, 2010

Hard to believe we started out this season on a cold morning back at the beginning of March and now we have completed 20+ games.  What a great season we had!  We ended up with more wins than any other Chiefs team ever.  I – along with all our team coaches – are very proud of every player on the team this year.  Everyone gave their all and improved over the course of the season.  The Chiefs are now known throughout the league as a force to be reckoned with.  Below are stats from yesterday’s big win over Cranford.  Season stats will be communicated at the End of Season Team Party (details will be sent via e-mail).

June 5 vs. Cranford (Chiefs win 8-1)

Scoring Percentage: 42%.  8 goals on 19 shots

– Goals: goals were scored by: Castagna (2), Carney (2), Haddad, Barth, Nieves and Murer (first goal as a Chief!).

– Assists: Castagna (1) and Wong (1)

– Saves: James Duffy had a shutout first half in the cage and Connor Morang finished up the game (and season) with his usual stellar play.

– Face Offs: we won 3 of 4 faceoffs.

– Ground Balls: the team picked up 11 GBs.

– Penalties: we committed 4 penalties and served time for all of them.

As I wind down from this great season I will have more to say here so check back often.  See you all at the party!

Last Game On Deck + Stats from SPF and Millburn Games

Posted by Barry Marenberg on June 4, 2010

Our final game of the 2010 Chiefs season is this Saturday.  Its an early morning game with a face-off at 8:30am vs. our familiar opponent from Cranford.  This game will be played on the turf at NEW PROVIDENCE H.S.  This promises to be a fun game so I hope to see everyone bright and early at 8am for warm-ups.

Following our game the 6th grade plays and then the 7th grade.  At noon and continuing through the rest of the day and all day Sunday will be the 2010 Chiefs 8th grade tournament.  Please come out and cheer for the 8th grade Chiefs in their final season before heading on to Middle School.
