The GHC 16UAA Green '03 team capped an inaugural weekend of great hockey defeating Team Maryland 15U Pure AAA to win the Philadelphia Shootout at Ice Line Quad Rinks in West Chester, PA.
Genesis dropped a tough one to the JR Flyers 15U team 3-2 in overtime in game 1 but rebounded to beat 621 Hockey 7-2 in game 2 Friday evening. On Saturday they returned to defeat Team Maryland 15U Pure 5-3 in game 3 but was bested by Team Maryland 16UAAA 10-0 on Sunday afternoon.
In the semifinals, GHC faced off against the JR Flyers 16UAAA and defeated them 2-1 to advance to the Finals Monday afternoon to face Team Maryland 15UAAA who defeated a very good Team Maryland 16UAAA earlier in the day.
In the championship game, it was all Team Genesis who went on to handily defeat Team Maryland 8-1 to win the tournament.
Overall, it was an excellent start for Coach Ken Orlando and the 16UAA Green ('03) team as well as the Genesis Hockey Club. Great work by all.
