The Greensboro Stars Bantam B team finished a near-perfect season in the Carolina Hockey League by beating the Roanoke Express 2-1 to capture the 2014-2015 CHL League title at the Ryan D. Sobiech Championship Tournament Sunday in Raleigh.
Facing fierce competition from the Carolina Lightning, Wilmington and Roanoke, the Stars finished the weekend 2-0-2. The Stars team went undefeated in the CHL regular season outscoring its opponents 62-8 in twelve games.
“When you come into a tournament after a season like we’ve had, you bring a lot expectations with you. That kind of baggage can weigh down a team. But these are tenacious players and they proved it this weekend” said Head Coach Chris Bathgate.
“No matter what, these kids always find a way to win” commented Assistant Coach Pressley.
Greensboro also took first place in the CHL skills competition on Saturday.
The team will conclude their season next weekend at the Capital Showdown tournament in Washington, D.C.
