ASTON, PA — Over 300 hockey players from 28 teams spanning New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia were on hand for OneHockey’s Pennsylvania Summer Challenge at Aston IceWorks Skating Complex this past weekend. And after the dust settled following three days of intense action across four sheets of ice in suburban Philadelphia, seven new champions were crowned.

Surge Hockey led the way capturing tournament titles in 2006, 2009 and 2010 divisions over R&M, XHP and Hollydell, respectively, while Aston selects produced championships in the 2005 division as well as U-19. DMV Prospects prevailed in U-16 competition while the Junior Flyers defeated the Syracuse Cadets in 2004 competition.

“There was strong competition this past weekend, resulting in some very close championship games,” OneHockey Vice-President of Marketing and Corporate Sponsorships Sharon Cullen said. “At the 2006 AAA level, Surge Hockey from New Jersey and RM Hockey from Pennsylvania battled it out on the ice resulting in a tight win with Surge Hockey coming out on top. Blake Groton and Chris Reinger led the Surge team as tournament MVP’s. The U19 AAA level championship game was also very hard fought with Aston Selects Black defeating Aston Selects White.”

Trailing 1-0 after two periods of play, Groton set up Brady Logue for the game-tying goal on the power play with 12:02 remaining in regulation before scoring the game-winner with 3:23 left to win it for Surge Hockey in the 2006 final.

“This year, Philadelphia was one of the smoothest events we’ve had,” Tournament Director Shaun Lund said. “Even though it had a bit of a smaller feel to it with a new lead that had been formed elsewhere, we had no issues with referees, scorekeepers or anything that typically comes up in tournaments. I feel the competition was very good with only a couple lopsided games in the younger age groups which happens from time to time.

“The venue looked great and was ran very smoothly,” Lund said. “Go OneHockey!”
