Quite an ending to our 2017-2018 season with #3 Binghamton taking on #4 Chenango Forks. After getting some time off to rest, both teams were ready to go in this one. The regular season games between them couldn't get much closer when they split a pair and CF won the third in a shootout. To get to this point both teams knocked off the top 2 teams in the regular season (E/HH and Vestal) in consecutive games proving that they both belonged. After a scoreless 8 minutes, Bryce Kimble (Kieran Horton, Tyler Smith) broke through with a powerplay goal putting Forks up - a lead that would hold through the rest of period one. We got halfway through the second when Logan Ulmer (Eddie Baker, Zach Cerinetti) scored on the powerplay to tie this game up. Just over a minute later Conan Picciano (Baker, Justin Fiato) had a powerplay goal of his own putting the Patriots up for the first time in this game. That finished the scoring in the middle session with Binghamton holding a 2-1 lead heading into the third. In what was a trend throughout this entire game, the first 8 minutes were scoreless until again on a powerplay, Logan Ulmer got his second of the game (Jake Miller, Cerinetti) giving Binghamton a 3-1. Both goalies made a number of excellent saves throughout the third and shooters just could not break through. With the CF goalie pulled for an extra skater, Ulmer completed his hattrick into an empty net to seal a 4-1 win and a league championship for the Patriots. Josh Ryan had 26 savs getting the win while Christopher Brewster made 23 for CF. If not for the powerplays, neither team may have been able to get a puck behind these two in this game. Great effort and very entertaining - great game!
Hope to see you all at the all-star game!
Regular season changes for the 2017-2018 season:
Some changes to regular season games and procedures have been made for the upcoming 2017-2018 BCHSHA season. There will no longer be any individual or team awards given to the regular season 1st or 2nd place teams. Since all teams qualify for the play-offs, the regular season will be used to establish play-off seeding positions and to get players prepared to participate at higher levels come play-off time. We are now considering the regular season as the "play-off preseason". The winner of the play-offs will be designated as the BCHSHA "League Champions" with the play-off championship game loser designated as the league runner-up.

Each play-off game must result with one team winning the game. A tie game in the play-offs first goes to an overtime period and if the tie still exists, goes into a shoot-out. We had a significant number of games decided by shoot-outs during last year's play-offs. Since this is the only time that our players are faced with shoot-outs in our league, we wanted to incorporate a change to correspond with the above regular season philosophy in mind. Beginning this season, all regular season games ending in a tie will immediately go to a shoot-out (5-player shoot-out followed by sudden death shoot-out if a tie remains - just like we have in the play-offs). These will start immediately after the end of regulation play during the regular season - no regular season overtime play.

We also made a change to the procedure used to keep the regular season league standings. A team winning in regulation time will be awarded 3 points (with the losing team getting 0). A game finishing tied after regulation time, will result in each team involved being awarded 1 point with the shoot-out winner getting an additional point (still 3 points awarded per game, every game). Besides getting our players ready for potential shoot-outs in the play-offs when the fate of the team could very well be decided, this concept will add an additional layer of excitement for both players and spectators alike and prepare our players for this heightened level of pressure and competition. We hope that these changes make the league more enjoyable for everyone!
