EHF Weekend Warm-Up - October 25, 2019

October 25, 2019

By Matt LaRochelle /

It’s time for another weekend of hockey in the Eastern Hockey Federation.
Here are some things to watch for the weekend of October 25-27, 2019.

2006 – Bantam Minor

  • Islanders H.C. vs Top Gun (Oct. 26 – Salem ICEnter)

  • South Shore Kings vs. Islanders H.C. (Oct. 27 – Gallant Arena)

Now 9-0-0, the Islanders (18 Pts) continue to roll in the early stages of the season. They’ll look to close October with two more wins as they face a pair of teams in the division’s top-half, including a road trip to second-place Top Gun (7-1-2, 16 Pts).

2007 – Pee Wee Major

  • Islanders H.C. vs Top Gun (Oct. 26 – Salem ICEnter)

  • South Shore Kings vs. Islanders H.C. (Oct. 27 – Gallant Arena)

With a nine-point lead built over the ’07 Elite Division, the Islanders (12-0-1, 25 Pts) will look to end the month by extending it by another four points.

U18 (Half-Season) – Group 1

  • Islanders H.C. East vs Boch Blazers (Oct. 26 – Boch Ice Center)

  • Boch Blazers vs North Shore Shamrocks (Oct. 27 – Stoneham Arena)

With two weeks to go in the regular season, many teams in the U15, U16, and U18 half-season divisions are still in the hunt for a postseason berth.

In the U18’s first group, the undefeated Boch Blazers (8-0-0, 16 Pts) are hanging on to a two-point lead in a very tight division. They can fortify their playoff chances this weekend by defeating IHC East (4-1-2, 10 Pts) and the Shamrocks (4-3-1, 9 Pts), both of whom are fighting for playoff spots.

U16 (Half-Season) – Group 2

  • Providence H.C. (South) vs Boston Jr. Terriers (W/D) (Oct. 26 – Bavis Ice Arena)

  • Boch Blazers (South) vs Springfield Jr. Thunderbirds (Oct. 26 – Enfield Twin Rinks)

  • Boston Jr. Huskies (W) vs Islanders H.C. (West) (Oct. 27 – Skate III)

  • Boston Jr. Terriers (W/D) vs Providence H.C. (South) (Oct. 27 – CVM Ice Rink)

With the group’s top six separated by just eight points, the last two weeks of the season are going to be intense. Several pivotal games, listed above, have the potential to create a major shake-up by the end of Sunday.

U15 (Half-Season)

  • Greater Boston Vipers vs Providence H.C. (North) (Oct. 26 – R.I. Sports Center)

  • Providence H.C. (North) vs North Shore Shamrocks (Oct. 27 – Allied Veterans Rink)

Providence (5-2-1, 11 Pts), currently sixth in the U15 standings, can significantly improve their odds this weekend if they can knock off two teams currently in a playoff position. Their toughest game will come on Sunday, as the Shamrocks’ defense (16 GA) ranks third in the division.

U14 (Black Division)

  • Boston Jr. Eagles vs South Shore Kings (Oct. 26 – Foxboro Sports Center)

  • Boston Jr. Eagles vs Boston Bandits (Oct. 27 – Bridgewater Arena)

Undefeated through their first seven games, the second-place Jr. Eagles look to keep the streak going on the road against the Kings (4-3-1, 9 Pts) and the Bandits (2-7-1, 5 Pts).

2006 – Bantam Minor

  • CP Dynamo vs Jersey Hitmen (Oct. 26 –Ice Vault Arena)

    • Game 1 – 10:00 a.m.

    • Game 2 – 4:40 p.m.

The final undefeated team in the South’s 2006 Division, CP Dynamo (6-0-0, 12 Pts) will look to maintain that status as they travel to Wayne, NJ for a Saturday doubleheader with the Hitmen (3-6-0, 6 Pts).

2007 – Pee Wee Major

  • P.A.L. Jr. Islanders vs New Jersey Rockets (Oct. 27 – Bridgewater Sports Arena)

    • Game 1 – 11:30 a.m.

    • Game 2 – 4:00 p.m.

Even though they’ve played two division games this season, the Rockets (2-0-0, 4 Pts) will provide plenty of challenges for the first-place Jr. Islanders (5-0-1, 11 Pts) when they visit Bridgewater for back-to-back games.
