2014 East Coast Showdown Tournament Results


The DVCHC would like to thank all of the teams for their attendance at the Third Annual East Coast Showdown College Ice Hockey Tournament. It was the largest Showdown to date with 15-men's programs and 8-women's programs. I hope each and every one of your organizations found the hockey to be competitive and a positive experience. 
Men's Results - 
    With 15 teams striving to win the East Coast Showdown, it was expected to come down to the last day. On the start of Sunday morning, four teams were within one point for first place but only one can win. I would like to congratulate Catholic University of America from Washington, DC from the Blue Ridge Hockey Conference. Catholic U of America narrowly edging out Rowan University from the Delaware Valley Collegiate Hockey Conference 16 points to 15. Third and Fourth place go to Suffolk County C.C. out of Long Island, and University of Maryland with 11 points each.  
Women's Results
 Eight teams entered play Friday night with the intentions of playing strong, competitive hockey, but one team decided that they wanted to dominate this tournament. I want to congratulate Towson University from the Delaware Valley Collegiate Hockey Conference for their impressive weekend. Towson was the first team in the history of the East Coast Showdown to earn every possible point, earning an impressive 18 points, by having 3 consecutive shutouts.   University of Maryland was second by earning 15 of the possible 18 points.
Again, thank you for attending the Third Annual East Coast Showdown and we look forwarding to see you at the Fourth Annual East Coast Showdown the weekend before Thanksgiving in 2015.
