KPW captures two South Shore Conference championships
Two King Philip Walpole Youth Hockey teams brought home South Shore Conference championships while three other teams earned SSC silver medals as the conference season ended Saturday night.
The Girls U14A team won its third straight SSC U14A championship by knocking off Milton, 4-1, to close an unbeaten conference season. The U14A's have captured three straight District 3 championships and earned two state silver medals over that three-year span, and finished the season 39-2, losing only to state champion Charlestown during the state tournament while outscoring the opposition 207-28.
The Pee Wee 2's earned the Pee Wee B Herman championship with a thrilling 2-1 overtime win over the Seahawks, capping a 22-13-9 season.
The Bantam 2's dropped a 3-2 overtime loss to Tri-County in the Bantam B Re championship game, after Tri-County scored two late power-play goals.
The U12's, which ended the regular season as the 6th seed but beat the No. 3 and No. 2 seeds to earn a spot in the championship game, dropped a 3-0 decision to top-seeded Braintree.
The Mite 1's lost a 3-1 battle with Pembroke in the Mite A Herman Group 1 title match, while the Mite 2's fell to Falmouth, 6-2, in the Mite A Re Group 3 consolation game.
So how well did the program fare in conference play this season, with 26 competitive travel teams? KPW won two South Shore Conference championships, sent four teams into title games, one team into a consolation game and four others into the SSC semifinals. In addition, the Mite 3's won the Yankee Conference mite championship and the Pee Wee 5's played in their Yankee Conference consolation final.
Congratulations to all of our players, coaches and families on a truly impressive season!
