While The Vermont Outlaws (under age 17) had a rare tough last seven days, coach Tim Albertson’s squad nevertheless snared top seed with its 6-3 league record in the season-closing tournament this weekend in Plattsburgh, N.Y.
The Outlaws will open play Saturday morning against either the fourth-seeded Colchester Junior Cannons or fifth-seeded OEC (Orleans-Essex-Caledonia), who meet Friday in an opening round.
The Outlaws, coming off a 2-5 week, take a 17-19-1 season mark into the event which goes through Sunday.
Last Saturday and Sunday, the Outlaws were in a tournament in Ottawa, Ont. where they captured one victory in four contests, beating Central New York 18-8 Saturday afternoon.
