Penguins at Colonial Clash (11/13)

The Penguins wrapped up the fall season at the Colonial Clash tournament held at Progin Park in Lancaster, MA on November 13th and 14th. The Penguins had nine teams participating and competed in three championship games and winning two titles. The Penguins 2026, 2027/28, 2029 and 2030/31 teams played on Saturday and the Penguins 2022, 2023, 2022/23, 2024 and 2025 played on Sunday.

The Penguins 2026 team went 1-2 on the day with a great team win against 802 Lacrosse and a close game against HGR Blue. The Penguins 2027/28 team also went 1-2 with a dynamic victory against the Maineiax. The Penguins 2030/31 had a great day going 1-1-1. The lost a hard fought semi-final game against Gorilla and lost in a Braveheart to narrowly miss a back to back finals appearance. The Penguins 2029 team went 2-0-1 in pool play with tremendous wins against Coyotes Blue and Gorilla. The team was the number 1 seed and had a rematch with 4Leaf Army in the championship game whom they previously had tied earlier in the day. This game did not disappoint as the Penguins game back from a 4-2 deficit at half to tie the game in the closing minutes and send to a Braveheart to determine a champion. Nolan Merenda won the face-off and Austin Keyser drew a penalty to give a man advantage. That was all that was needed as DJ Jenkins passed to Austin Keyser who found Nolan Merenda who notched the game winning goal.

We had a gritty comeback in the second half of the championship game which was anchored by great goaltending from Bobby and Evan. Even though we were down, the group never gave up and it took a total team effort to defeat 4Leaf in overtime. It was excellent being able to coach this team this weekend and I am happy with how the team played.
