Tewksbury, MA- For the second year in a row, the North Shore Vipers U13's will compete for a National Title. The team earned an at-large bid to USA Hockey's National Championship Tournament after falling just short of playing for their second consecutive state title in the semi-finals to eventual champion, East Coast Wizards.
The Vipers head into Nationals with an overall record of 41-10-1, and are the Country's top ranked team in MYhockey Rankings' U14 Tier II poll.. Along with a stellar record, the U13's enjoyed some Tournament success earlier this season, winning the highly competitive "Fire on Ice" in Rochester New York. They went undefeated to earn the title winning all six games, four of which were against teams that will also be competing in Nationals next weekend.
The 2018 National Championships will kick off on Thursday, April 5th. The Vipers' schedule for the tournament can be found below. All games are being played at the New England Sports Center in Marlboro Massachusetts, and we hope everyone can go show their support. Good Luck to the U13 girls, GO VIPERS!
