USA Hockey donated equipment to the Brewins Learn to Play

The Brewins Youth Hockey Organization would like to say thank you to Michelle Picard, a member of the 2014 USA Women's Olympic Hockey Team and USA Hockey for their donation of 12 sets of hockey equipment for our learn to play hockey program. Michelle and USA Hockey made 12 Brewin players and families very happy.
Congratulations to the Pee Wee B White team for capturing the South Shore Conference title over the weekend. The team defeated a strong Canton White team 2 to 1 in a hard fought defensive game. The Brewins dominated most of the first period and with 2 minutes left, Matt Kearney received a pass from CJ Smith and Cole Brousseau, raced down the left side beat the defenseman and fired a laser beam over the glove of the Canton goalie. The first period ended with the Brewins up 1 and outshot the Canton Team 8 to 3. The Brewins continued to pressure the Canton defense by getting pucks deep in the zone and executing the relentless fore-check that has worked well for the team all season. This paid dividends quickly in the second period when Max Allen got a puck deep in the offensive zone and with the help of his line mate Brett Moniz worked the puck to the Owen Ross in the slot and again scored high glove on a great shot. Canton got on the board at the 10 minute mark when they banged home a rebound but that would be the last goal either team would allow. The game became a defensive battle for the last half of the game and the goalies stole the show. Owen Connor and Eddie Donovan made some great saves and the team defense was exceptional! Final shots on goal were Brewins 20 Canton 22.
The final game marked the 48 game of the season. The team finished with a 32-10-6 record. They played in several tournaments and are District 4 champs, lost in the finals of the Waterville Valley tournament, lost in the semi-finals in OT in the State Tournament, competed in the New England Regionals and finished the season as the 3rd Seed in the South Shore Conference.
For the season the team averaged 3.50 goals scored per game while only giving up an average of 1.90 goals. This commitment to team defense with timely scoring propelled this team!

BR Junior Trojans Hockey 2014-2015 Program Philosophies:
The BR Junior Trojans Hockey Program is privately funded/managed and was formed to offer the children of Bridgewater and Raynham the opportunity to play together as 6th, 7th and 8th graders in preparation for playing junior varsity and varsity hockey at the high school. Many of the kids play for different youth hockey programs throughout the South Shore. This program gives the kids the opportunity to get to know each other and form an alliance that progresses right into the high school level. We are a feeder program to the high school and work with the high school coaches directly.
Program Director: Marc Papasodoro,
Fee: $150 tryout deposit (final tuition to be determined based on practice time)
Ice Time: A minimum of 26 games (23 regular season + minimum 3 playoff games). Games are 1 per week played at either Foxboro Sports Center or Walpole Arena on Friday or Sunday nights.
Player Placement: A selection committee was formed to decide placements and was not based on age or school grade, but rather on talent and skill level as assessed during the two (2) tryout sessions. Our main focus is to prepare the kids to play for the high school program. Please do not determine the team your child SHOULD be placed on based on where he plays in other programs.
Lady Brewins U14 Champions Waterville Valley 2014 Invitational

Lady Brewins U14 Champions of the Waterville Valley 2014 Girls Invitational Tournament
Congratulations to the U14 Lady Brewins for their stunning Championship Victory in Waterville Valley. With a short bench of only eight skaters, the Lady Brewins advanced through the opening round with a 2-1 record and the opportunity to play in the semi- finals against the Walpole Express. The Lady Brewins were looking to avenge their only loss (2-0) and to compete in the Championship game. The Lady Brewins played an even first period and scored mid-way through the second period to take the 1-0 lead heading into the third period. The Lady Brewins were not to be denied and erupted for three third period goals to win the contest (4-0) and advance to the finals.
The Lady Brewins earned the right to play against the New England Pride in the finals (the ladies second game of the day) and it was going to be a difficult task. The New England Pride was playing their first game of the day as they coasted through the opening round with a 4-0 record. The NE Pride had not allowed a goal in the tournament through the preliminary round.
The Lady Brewins were not intimated by the Pride’s physical play or the three lines that the Pride kept rolling over the boards through the contest. The Pride scored first and the Lady Brewins quickly responded and the score at the end of one period was 1-1. Period number two was the biggest challenge of the tournament as the Lady Brewins were exhausted and the Pride was taking advantage of every opportunity to score. The Pride did get their second goal and although the Lady Brewins were down 2-1 at the end of two periods, the ladies were determined to battle in the third period and not give up.
With the game reaching the final minutes the Lady Brewins willed their way to tie the score with 1:36 left in period number three and then score the stunning third goal with 55 seconds to play. The crowd was going crazy (the Brewins fans, the opponents were stunned) and the ladies completed the outstanding weekend with the puck in the offensive zone to kill the final seconds without the Pride getting another shot on net.
It was an outstanding effort from the Lady Brewins and certainly a tournament that will never be forgotten. The Lady Brewins finished the tournament with a 4-1 record and a Championship. All the players should be commended for their great team play and outstanding commitment to each other during the five game series.
Thanks to Allison, Sydney, Olivia, Morgan, Catie, Mackenzie, Elsie, Olivia, and Hanna. A big thanks to all the fans for their support.
Congratulations to the Lady Brewins on winning the 2014 Waterville Invitational Championship.
Congratulations to the Brewins Squirt B2 White team for winning the Westfield Youth Hockey 13th Annual Fire & Ice Tournament. The team came together as a group this weekend and never looked back. The tournament started out with a win against Canton on Friday night and finished with a win against Canton on Sunday afternoon. The backchecking, forchecking and Goaltending that the team did over a 4 game period was incredible. All the coaches and parents were so proud of all the kids. Go Brewins!!!!
