    Congratulations to the Delaware Valley Collegiate Hockey Conference on winning their 3rd consecutive Empire Classic.  The Classic hosts 16 of the top ACHA's teams from the Mid Atlantic and Northeast regions and offers an opportunity to see some of the top ranked teams in the country do battle.  Neumann University, Bryn Athyn College, Richard Stockton University and Alvernia University combined for an overall record of 9 wins and 3 losses in the tournament to take home bragging rights once again.


    Congratulations go out to the players and coaches from Shippensburg University on winning the 2nd Annual East Coast Showdown Tournament. The competition was great this year with every game being hard fought and exciting down to the final buzzer.  This year there were four teams playing for the tournament title on the last day and were seperated by only 1 point between first and fourth place.  Shippensburg secured the championship with a win in the third period of the final game of the tournament.

    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.
