Demons Close Season Against Nightmare, Honor John Newman With Memorial

The Delco Demons close their season out this Saturday, March 30th against the New Jersey Nightmare.

Games start with the Orange Minors at 6pm, followed by the Elites at 7:30pm, and closing out the night with the Black Minors at 9:30pm.  While all three Demons are all but locked into their playoff positions, the Nightmare have the ability to climb with a few wins in both divisions, so the games are sure to be hotly contested.

Before the Elite match up, the Demons will be honoring the loss of John Newman, original Voice of the Demons, with a tribute and banner raising ceremony, and moment of silence.  John lost his battle with cancer earlier this month, leaving us all mourning his absence.  Please join us Saturday in remembrance of a great man. 

Tickets can be purchased at the door.  General Admission is $5, and Loaded Tickets can be upgraded for $25 to include all you can eat and drink, with food provided by Slack’s Hoagie Shack, and beverages provided by Pepsi and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.

Demons Pass The Halfway Point, Looking Strong And More To Come

The Delco Demons have passed the halfway point of this season for all three teams, and are looking strong despite the work ahead to finish the year.  With a first ever matchup against the New Jersey Nightmare this weekend, and the Mid-Atlantic vs. Northeast Festival next weekend, the Demons are poised to take on the remaining challenges they face this year.

The Demons Elites are setting the pace for the division, holding 1st place with a 13-0-0-1 record and 4 games in hand over the second place Liberty, who are 5 points back.  Jack Phelan leads the way with 15 goals, while AJ Ehinger leads in assists (13) and points (23).  With 8 players of 12 posting double digit point totals, the Demons are incredibly deep.  At the goaltending position the even balance remains, with Kozik leading the way with 7 wins, and Maczynski undefeated with 6 wins and a 1.67 GAA.  Following the matchup this weekend with the Nightmare, the Elites look forward to the festival games including a prime-time match against the 495ers, and close the season out with a rematch against the Liberty and Nightmare at home.

The Demons Minor Black team closed their half of the season clinging to 2nd place in the division, by dropping two games to the Pittsburgh Bandits in Pittsburgh and an 8-3-1-0 record, and look to rebound this weekend against the Nightmare.  The Dangelantonio Brothers continue to lead the team in all three major categories, with Nick leading assists (11), and Joe leading goals (22) and points (25).  Justin Brennan leads the way with a 5-2 record in net, while Steven Stewart posts a 2.80 GAA.  Following next weekend’s festival, the Black squad closes out the season with a home and home series against the Central Jersey Fanatics, and the Nightmare at home on the 30th.

The Demons Minor Orange team (4-6-0-0) picked up their pace last week and took out the Bandits in two big overtime wins, propelling them into 5th place in the division.  Dominic Gricco leads the way in goals (6), while Vince Panaccio leads in assists (6) and points (9).  Sean Yingling leads in net with 2 wins, and Craig Fultz has the best GAA (2.71).  The Orange squad has the most games remaining, following the festival with games against the Fanatics, Liberty, and Nightmare, and look to keep on the winning track this weekend with more wins on the road.

This weekend holds a rare Sunday afternoon tilt in Voorhees, NJ, with the two clubs being so close geographically.  Minor Black kicks off the action at 1pm, followed by the Elites at 2:45pm, and Minor Orange at 4:45pm.  Join us on the road and help us possess the Nightmare’s home rink.  Tickets are only $5 for admission to all games.
