The 09 Caps won their first game 5-4 in an overtime thriller against the top-seed NJ Colonials and won their second in a comeback win against a strong Jr Flyers team 6-3.

“The boys worked hard all season to be ready for big moments like this. We batted through some adversity by blowing a lead in game 1 and having to battle back in game 2, but the group stayed calm and confident throughout the tournament and played their best hockey when it mattered most," said Head Coach Brad Kostrzebski. "I couldn’t be more proud of how our team played under pressure and they deserve all the credit in the world for their hard work this season."
