Pacific Storm starts the season undefeated in 16U Western Conference

The 16 and under western conference category really got underway last weekend in Surrey BC, with all 12 boys and girls teams in action. The standout club from the weekend was Pacific Storm, who’s boys and girls combining for an unblemished 13-0-0 record.

The boys were led by Connor Macmillan and Liam Milne who have now combined for a whopping 59 goals in 8 games. Instead of scorching offense, the Pacific Storm’s 16U girls’ squad relied on a stifling defense to go undefeated over the weekend. Their defense leads the Western Conference with a combined GAA of 5.83. Their offense was led by sisters Diba Peiravani and Raha Peiravani who combined for 28 goals.

With fierce completion in the boys 16U Western Conference, the Winnipeg Neptunes held their own in their first ever games at the 16U level. After coming up just short in three very tight matches against Spartans, Calgary Torpedoes and the Calgary Wild, the Neptunes notched their first win by defeating the Pacific Storm Black squad 12-5. Another bright spot for the team was Nathanial Eidsness who is in competition for the top scorer in the Western Conference with his 34 goals.

In the East, Capital Wave’s 19U women’s squad went 5-1-0 outscoring their opponents 74-39. Their one tie was a back and forth affair against Dollard Black in which the Wave came back to tie the game 10-10 with 37 seconds left. They now sit alone atop the Eastern Conference with 16 points. They were led offensively by Juliette Belanger who scored 15 goals in her first 3 games.

The Mavericks Black 19U men’s team finished the weekend a perfect 5-0-0 which improved their record to 6-0-0. The Maverick Black team looks like a strong contender for the National Finals, competing with a roster filled with players who helped the Mavericks to an undefeated season and 16U National Championship last season. This Mavericks team has been firing on all cylinders through their first 6 games, outscoring their opponents 111-29, but the teams from Dollard and the defending 19U National Champions from CAMO, who both sit 2nd in the East at 3-1-1 will both be strong competition for the Mavericks the rest of the way.

WPC would like to especially thank the Fraser Valley Water Polo Club, and the Maverick Water Polo Club, for hosting two of the largest NCL events of the year in Surrey and Markham this past weekend.

This Week in the NCL

This week is another big week for the NCL with 39 games being played over the weekend in Nepean ON, Waterloo ON, and Richmond BC. The MLWP season for men and women officially begins for all Eastern teams with 22 games being played in Nepean while 11 more 16U games will be played at Waterloo. Finally, three 16U games will be played in Richmond on Sunday night to end the weekend.
