Inaugural EHLP All-Star Game full of offense as Team Gray downs Team White
Last Saturday night, the best players in the EHLP competed in its first-ever All-Star Game, featuring Team Gray and Team White.
For the first 40 minutes, it appeared that Team Gray was going to run away with the victory as they jumped to a 5-0 lead. Phillip Parker of the Walpole Express, Luc Denney of the Valley Jr. Warriors, and Logan Downs of the Philadelphia Little Flyers all had multiple points by the end of the second period, and the shots were 34-19 in their favor by the second intermission.
Team White did manage to score a goal at the end of the second period, coming from Boston Jr. Rangers forward Max Morris. In the third period, he managed to score two more goals while Express defenseman Aidan Parker and 87’s forward Will O’Brien also found the back of the net and cut the deficit to 6-5.
Team Gray, however, managed to weather the storm with an empty-net goal from RJ Sember of the New England Wolves, and secured the 7-5 victory.
While on the losing team, Morris was named MVP for leading Team White’s comeback effort with a hat trick.
