Villa Maria Middle School Varsity Team Wins Regular-Season Championship Villa 3, Holy Child of Rosemont 0
Villa 7-0 GCAL 14-1 overall
Regular Season GCAL Champion
Joe Botta, Villa MS Coach: “We took a 1-0 lead into the half, but played much better hockey in the 2nd. The girls stepped up in the 2nd, and won a lot of the 1v1’s. We did a nice job of passing and playing the ball outside. Rosemont’s goalie played a nice game and stopped a lot of great shots. Proud of these girls they have stayed focused through a long season so far.
We hope to take this momentum into Monday’s (10/24) home playoff game (team to be determined).”
