Team Comcast’s 12U Pee Wee squad continued what has been another banner year for the entire Team Comcast organization with an AYHL Playoff victory over the Washington Little Capitals.
After opening their 2014-2015 AYHL Playoff run with a win, tie and loss, the 12Us battled back with back-to-back shutout victories to close out the playoffs. Earning the first shutout in a 7-0 win over the Long Island Royals was goalie TJ Semptimphelter who stopped all 15 shots faced. Frank Petkunas closed up the net in the team’s final AYHL Playoff win over the Washington Little Capitals, making 19 saves on 19 chances.
Scoring in the team’s final game were forwards Anthony Gurcsik and Andrew Eberling. Gurcsik’s score which came in the opening period of play, was an even strength score assisted by Luke Steele. Sealing the Team Comcast win in the third and final period of play was Andrew Eberling. Eberling notched home an empty net power play score to seal a huge Team Comcast victory with second left.
During the 2014-2015 campaign, the Team Comcast 12U Pee Wee squad posted a 23-7-4 record in AYHL league play and a 10-5-3 district record.
Great goaltending and defense was this squad’s key to success all year long as in 34 games they allowed the least scores in the AYHL, 68. Team Comcast added to their defensive prowess with 136 goals scored an average of 4 goals per game.
Once again congratulations are in order to yet another strong showing from a team and coaching staff playing under the Team Comcast name. With both the 14U and 12U squads thriving in the AYHL Playoffs this season, the future of Team Comcast appears to be bright.
