AHA Showcase Game Summary

The mighty Wood Vikings battled a scrappy Tennent Panthers team on Friday, October 13th in the second game of the AHA (Athletes Helping Athletes) Hockey Showcase at Revolution Ice Gardens. Wood applied a lot pressure early in the game. Both lines of defense consisting of Ryan Kinney, Nick Romano, Sean Boehm, and Marisa Denucci were doing a good job keeping the puck in the zone. Then Bobby Marcus from Tennent had a quick breakaway and scored with 4:57 left in the first period. Tennent’s goalie Michael Lineman was stopping everything during the game, over 40 shots, until Wood’s forward Justin Carrelli scored from a beautiful across the crease pass by Center Ben Doran with 6:14 left in the third period.  A minute later Justin scored again on a breakaway with assists by Ben Doran and Sean Boehm. The game ended 2-1 with Wood pulling out the victory and ending a four year losing streak against the Tennent Panthers. This was a good preview for the big rival game between the two teams on November 22nd, 7:00 at BCI. Be sure to come out and support the Wood Hockey team this Wednesday, October 18 at 8:40pm against Council Rock North at the Revolution Ice Gardens. Your [...]

2017-2018 Hockey Season

This season we will be in the PCL (Philadelphia Catholic League).  All teams in the division will be Catholic High Schools so we hope to see a lot of fans at the games to support the team against our high school rivals! The only goalie we have this year is a senior.  This is a excellent opportunity for an upcoming freshman or 8th grader to join the Wood Hockey Team as a goalie.  The club can help out with equipment.  The current goalie started playing ice hockey as a freshman and student of the famous goalie coach Larry Paul. With some hard work and dedication you can be the next goalie for the Wood Ice Hockey Team! Please call or text me (Dave Casper) for additional information or with any questions at 267-679-2516.
