The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers are pleased to announce the organization’s Players of the Week for week ending November 24, 2019. The Players of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2019-20 regular season that recognizes top performing players for the Peewee, Bantam and Midget levels. Only players that are recommended by their respective teams are considered for the Players of the Week award.

Pee Wee Major Players of the Week – Matt La Buono (RW), Braeden Graham (C) and Cooper Rodgers (LW)

The 2007 Philadelphia Jr. Flyers played two division games this weekend against the New Jersey Avalanche and New Jersey Devils, and won both games. "I challenged Mattie, Braeden and Cooper with some of the most challenging minutes in our games" recalls Coach Joe Moran. "and each time they came up big for the team."

The Jr. Flyers won Saturday's tilt with the Avalanche 2-1 and came back on Sunday with a 5-3 win over the first place Devils.  "These were tightly contested games and we needed to bring our best effort to each shift.  This line did that time and again for us.  In the Devils game, it was 2-2 in the 3rd period and this line led an offensive rush that saw 5 or 6 passes to gain the offensive zone.  The play was finished off with a goal by Cooper to give us a lead we wouldn't relinquish, and it happened because everyone on the ice moved the puck and played as a team.  It was textbook."  Coach Moran went on to say, "Later on in that period, in the last minute or so, Matt, Braeden and Cooper were out there to finish the game for us.  We were only up 4-3 and the Devils had pulled their goalie.  Again, everyone on the ice worked exceptionally hard to keep possession from the Devils, which then culminated in Braeden's pass sending Mattie on a breakaway to put away the game with an empty net goal.  All 3 of them stepped up big in an intense situation."  Coach Moran concluded, "These are two victories the whole team can be proud of, and a lot of confidence was built within my Players of the Week.  We are going to continue to get better as a team by building upon these quality moments together."
 

Pee Wee Minor Player of the Week – Lia Cericola
Despite playing well against the Avalanche at home on Saturday, the ‘08’s lost 4 – 2. But Sunday’s game against the New Jersey Titans was a different story. Lia got the team going with two back to back goals in the first period that ended in an 8-1 win for the Pee Wee minor team.

The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers are pleased to announce the organization’s Players of the Week for week ending November 10, 2019. The Players of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2019-20 regular season that recognizes top performing players for the Peewee, Bantam and Midget levels. Only players that are recommended by their respective teams are considered for the Players of the Week award.

Pee Wee Major Player of the Week – Hunter Haas (LW), Nick La Buono (C), TenZee Z'Ningray (RW)
The 2007 Philadelphia Jr. Flyers came into the weekend with two big AYHL games on the schedule.  The first game was against the New York Saints who sit a position ahead of the Jr. Flyers in the standings, and Sunday brought the challenge of Team Maryland who came into the game undefeated in the league.  The Jr. Flyers came away with an important 4-3 victory over the Saints and stood strong throughout a hard fought 8-6 loss to Team Maryland.  Coach Joe Moran learned a lot about his team this weekend, and his forward line, and Players of the Week, Hunter Haas (LW), Nick La Buono (C), TenZee Z'Ningray (RW).

"I put this line together a couple of weeks ago hoping to spark our offense" recalls Coach Moran. "I could see them in each game begin to gel, and they continued to come together in our important win over the Saints.  Hunter, Nick and TenZee hit the ice with a lot of speed, won puck battles, blocked several shots, and Nick even put in a very important goal for us early in the game.  Something was brewing in the them, I could feel it."  After the big win over the Saints, the Jr. Flyers traveled to play a strong Team Maryland squad, and Coach Moran's intuition about this line came to bear.  "The line just exploded offensively.  Right out of the gate, on their fist shift, Nick deposits 2 goals to give us the early lead.  Nick, and his line, put Team Maryland on notice that we came to play today, and we are not backing down."  And to prove that point, Hunter and TenZee got in on the scoring beginning in the 2nd Period.  "Hunter's 3 goals/1 assist was the result of tenacious puck pressure and really smart decision-making in the offensive zone.  Add to that TenZee grabbing a goal and an assist by blazing paths with his speed, and on-point passing.  Shift after shift the boys were relentless in creating scoring opportunities.  They just kept coming after Team Maryland with waves of offensive and defensive zone pressure throughout the entire game."  Coach Moran concluded, "In my mind, Hunter, Nick and TenZee lifted themselves to another level today, and I will be challenging them to consistently achieve that higher standard in both our practices and our games moving forward."

Pee Wee Minor Player of the Week – JD Frick, Forward
JD had a total of six points (4 goals and 2 assists) in Saturday’s 9 – 3 win over the New Jersey Titans. The 2008's also had a great game against the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Knights on Sunday, November 10 and came from behind to tie with a final score of 3-3.  Good team effort from all players.
