05 Blue Chip Selects prevail in the Shamrock Invite

Monday, April 11, 2016, 11:11AM

The Blue Chip 05 team has a nice little rivarly going on with the Boston Lightning.  The past two years the Lightning have beaten the Selects in the finals of the Shamrock Invite.  Both teams are very talented and every game against each other is always ultra competitive.

The Selects afer going 4-0 including a convicing 5-2 victory over the Lighning in the preliminary round moved into the semi finals with the number 1 seed.  After dominating the Tropics the 05 team was ready for a rematch with the Lightning.

As usual this game was back and forth with neither team giving in.  After thirty minutes of play and five minutes of four on four hockey the game still remained deadlocked.  As fate would have it after losing to the Lightning the year before in a shootout Chase Pirtle put the Selects up a goal in the overtime round of the shootout and Jason Delehoy made one last spectacular stop to cap the victory for the 05 Selects!!!!

Congratulations to both teams for an outstanding tournament.
