Congratulations Framingham Flyers! Our team lost to Hartford eariler in the tournament and I'm hoping that Hartford lost with more class than they won with, as we found them and their fans to be lacking in sportsmanship, before, during and after the game. We also had questions about the eligibility of a couple of their players, as they seemed much older than 12/13. In any case, sounds like it was a great game and a great win for the Flyers. Good luck in Florida!
