PowerPlay!

IMG_20130803_132242_313It’s been a stellar weekend for members of the Philadelphia PowerPlay, having fun and working hard this weekend at Neumann University in Aston, Delaware County, just outside of Philadelphia.  This afternoon, they go into the finals of the United States Power Hockey Championships!IMG_20130803_140928_269

Regardless of the outcome, this has been another 3 days providing good entertainment, good power hockey.  There was an exciting win over a team from Michigan Saturday.  Michigan boasts consistently dominating teams every year.

One aspect of hockey that often seems to excel over other sports is the post-game lineup, in which teams that fought against each other show respect and sportsmanship to their competitors.  I always enjoy seeing that moment.IMG_20130803_141809_995

 

 

Go Philadelphia!
