LIHL 12U Milner Champions
by Master Admin posted 03/05/2018

The 12U AA PAL-Milner team won the LIAHL PeeWee Milner Championship game vs the LI Gulls on March 3rd, 2-0. It was a hard fought battle between the two clubs, who were both held scoreless through two periods. Halfway through the third period, with PAL shorthanded, James Clifford was able to break the stalemate by sneaking past both Gulls defensemen and going five hole on the Gulls goalie. The Gulls were resilient in their effort to even the score, but with Ryan Burhart stopping everything thrown at him in the final 7 plus minutes of the game; and an empty net goal by Dom DeLuca with 30 seconds left, the League Championship was secured. Congratulations to the players and coaching staff on a season well done.
