2018 Protec Predators Bantam AAs Win at Hockey Boss Tournament in Randolph!
Randolph, NJ; After finishing pool play with a record of 1-1-1, the Protec predators hit the ice Sunday morning in Randolph, New Jersey for a showdown with the Frozen Tide in the semifinal round of the Hockey Boss tournament. After a scoreless first period, the Protec Predators struck first with two goals and washed away the Frozen Tide in a 3-1 victory, and were on their way to the championship game against the Mustangs; a rematch of a close pool-play game in which the Predators fell 3-2.
In the finals, the Predators broke open the game in the second period. For the first goal, the Predators caught the Mustangs in a long line change when defenseman Zachary Alvin passed the puck up to Johnny Mahon at the far blue line, who redirected it to Anthony O’Brien, and O’Brien put home the breakaway. Then, the Predators went up 2-0 on a shot through a screen, from the point, by Duncan Stewart. The scoring was rounded out with an empty net goal by Zachary Alvin. Also playing a major part in the Predators’ win was Jackson Gottlick, who stood tall in net, saving 26 shots and surviving two Mustang 5-on3s.
