Also, a number of people have expressed concern about the Heartbleed bug and the Newton Youth Hockey website. According to LeagueAthletics.com which provides the NYH site:
The Heartbleed bug is not a threat to LeagueAthletics.com sites, stored personal information and online payment methods and never has been."

In a nail biter of a finish, the Newton Girls U12 team scored 2 goals in under 5 minutes to defeat Belmont for the MYCGL MidEast division championship.
The Dragons gave up a goal early in the first period and trailed 1-0 going into the 3rd period. Using speed and aggressive puck play, the girls tied it up with just over 6 minutes to go and knocked in the game winner 3 minutes later. With a season record of 24-2-1, the Dragons were able to hold the lead for the final minutes against a strong opponent who had previously defeated (in triple OT) and tied the Newton team during the regular season.
This is the second championship in a row for the girls U12.
Team (L to R)
Back Row: Lydia Mastroianni, Charlotte Paquette, Emma McKee, Sarah Zeidan, Zoe Verdone, Taylor Paterson, Adrienne Leary.

As you all know well enough, Newton Youth Hockey operates exclusively because of the volunteer efforts of parents and friends who assume administrative, team parenting and coaching roles that create opportunities for our kids to enjoy this wonderful sport. We are just coming to the close of tryouts for next year's teams and will publish rosters for next season sometime in April. Until then, please join us in recognizing and thanking everyone who helped run our tryout process.
