Congratulations to the Riverhawks ( East Div. Champs) and the Huskies ( West Div. Champs) for their success in winning their respective divisions in the 20th season of the over 50 league. The East Division Final between the Riverhawks and Terriers was even for the first half of the game before the Riverhawks flexed their muscles and pulled away to a 6 – 1 final. Congrats to the 7th place Terriers for a tremendous playoff run. The West Division Final was played between the 4th place Crimson and the 7th place Huskies. This was a nail biter right to the end when the Huskies got the empty net goal to secure their win 4 – 2. Congratulations to all that participated this past season.
As you all know the goal of the league is to provide an even and competitive situation for all involved. To attain this goal it is imperative that the commissioner has the flexibility to make trades as needed to ensure parity throughout. Every effort will be made to give each and every team a chance to win every game that they play, but the co-operation of all skaters is essential and much appreciated.
The plans for the 2019 – 2020 season are currently similar to the last couple of years. The season will ultimately be determined by the number and the ability of the players who sign up. All current players in the league who sign up by August 31, 2019 will be guaranteed a position and then new and former players will be added on a first come first serve basis. Opening day will be Tuesday, September 10, 2019. Please list on your application which division you would prefer to play in as well as any other personal requests and I will do my best to accommodate, keeping parity in mind.
The Over 60 League will back to it’s Sunday afternoon/ evening time slot and will begin September 15, 2019. The format will depend on the enrollment, but the current hope is for 6 teams playing between 4 pm and 7 pm. The league will be open to all skaters sixty or older and to players 57 or older who have never been classified as an “A” player in the over 50 league.
Applications for all of the above programs are available upon request at Hockeytown’s main office or on line. Anyone that knows of an interested skater for any of the above programs should call or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. the rink for applications. All applications can also be downloaded from Hockeytown’s website at www.hockeytownsaugus.com
Thank you all

White Snails Over 60 Champs...could this be the start of a Dynasty ?
THE WHITE SNAILS CAME UP BIG FOR THE PLAYOFFS, BEATING THE BLACK CRABS BY A SCORE OF 7-4 ON SUNDAY MAY 4TH.
TIMING MAY HAVE BEEN THEIR BIGGEST ASSETS AS THE LEAGUE LEADING SCORER, GEORGE MURPHY, OF THE BLACK CRABS, WAS IN REHAB AFTER SUCCESSFUL KNEE SURGERY. THE LEAGUE’S TOP SCORING LINE OF MURPHY, CITRONI & WALKER WAS UNABLE TO CAPITALIZE ON THEIR OPPORTUNITIES WITHOUT THE MOTIVATING MURPHY. THE WHITE SNAILS TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THEIR GOOD FORTUNE WHEN AFTER GETTING A LEAD IN THE SECOND PERIOD, THE CAGEY VETERANS WENT INTO THEIR “DUMP AND DON’T CHASE” PREVENT DEFENSE FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE GAME. AFTER WINNING ONLY TWO GAMES DURING THE SPRING SEASON, THE SNAILS OVER CAME A 7-1 LEAD BY THE CRABS IN THE LAST LEAGUE GAME TO TIE 9-9, GIVING THEM THE CONFIDENCE THEY NEEDED FOR THE PLAYOFFS.
THE INAUGURAL SEASON FOR THIS NEW DIVISION WAS ENJOYED BY THIRTY FIVE PLAYERS WHO HAD THE CHANCE TO BE “THE KID” AGAIN.
THE SIXTY AND SEVENTY YEAR OLDS PROVED THAT GIVEN THE RIGHT ENVIRONMENT THEY CAN STILL ENJOY THE GAME THEY LOVE TO PLAY.
APPLICATIONS FOR NEXT SEASON WILL BE SENT OUT DURING THE SUMMER TO ALL EXISTING PLAYERS. ANY NEW PLAYERS SHOULD CALL THE RINK 781-233-3666 FOR AN APPLICATION. E-MAIL – HTUSAINC@AOL.COM
