Three Penguins teams participated in the Fall Brawl at Bryant University on Sunday, November 7th in what was a brisk and sunny day in Rhode Island. The Penguins 2027/28, Penguins 2029 and Penguins 2030/31 went a combined 8-3 on the day and played in two championship games to round out a great weekend.
The Penguins 2027/28 team went 1-2 losing close game against the Littlenecks and Coyotes and getting a good team win against HGR. The Penguins 2029 team went 3-0 in pool play with decisive victories against the Houlagans, Littlenecks and Coyotes. The played in their third championship game of the fall season, losing to a very strong RI Bulldogs team.
The team played great all day long and I was especially excited at how we competed against the Littlnecks in our second game. We’ve made huge strides this fall and being able to play in another championship game was rewarding. We came up against a very tough RI Bulldogs team but overall I was happy with our effort all day and looking forward to wrapping up at the Colonial Clash next weekend.Jason Wellemeyer, Penguins 2029 Coach
Finally, the Penguins 2030/31 team continued it fantastic fall season, going 3-0 in pool and outscoring opponents by 27 goals. They met up with the Coyotes team again in the championship game and came away on top, winning 10-7 in a back and forth contest. Wick Luckzow, Ethan Dearborn and Tommy Gentile shined and goaltending was solid with Nock Hodges and Jude Cronin having good days in the cage.
Today was a great team win for the 2030/31 program. It was a long day but the players stayed focused and being able to win the championship under the lights of the Bryant turf was pretty special. It’s been a great fall with this group and looking forward to keep it rolling.Matt Murphy, Penguins 2030/31 Coach
