Boston Advantage Falls Short in the Tier I Elite League Championship

The Boston Advantage U15 team suffered a tough loss this past Monday morning.  They were defeated by the # 5, nationally ranked, St. Louis Blues in the Tier I Elite League Championship game.  With 3:40 left in overtime, Boston Advantage goalie Connor Bradford made a breakaway save, however, in doing so he knocked the net off it’s mooring.  While play continued, Bradford attempted to fix his net, a pass was made back across the crease, where a player from the Blues, one timed the puck in before Bradford could get set.  St. Louis became league champions.  Boston Advantage, one of the top teams in the country this year, was playing for it’s 3rd consecutive title.  They won the State Tournament at the U15 level, knocking off the Cap Cod Whalers.  Last week, BA beat the high powered U16 Team Maryland 2 - 0 for the ECEL Championship.  Unfortunately, BA could not pull off the 3rd consecutive title with the loss to St. Louis.  Advantage will travel to Plymouth, Michigan, April 5th to represent Massachusetts at the U15 Tier I Nationals.

We want to wish our U15 team the best of luck in Michigan!
