8 DVCHC Teams Will Make Up East Coast Showdown's 1st Women's Bracket



In just two, short years, the wildly popular DVCHC EAST COAST SHOWDOWN has a grown into the mid-Atlantic's largest college hockey tournament.

For this season's 3rd installment, men's division leaders decided they'd go even bigger & in April, DVCHC tournament director Michael Cirard, contacted the women's side to see if they would join in the fun.

"Mike, John and the crew have done an amazing job organizing this marquee event," says women's president Bryan Benenati.  "They had the idea for a women's division & hoped for 4 teams.  Our players were so excited, we came back with 8."

ONE BIG WEEKEND:
The 2014 Showdown will take place November 21-23rd at IceWorks, a bustling hockey hub just ouside of Philadelphia.  The facility boasts 1 Olympic sheet of ice, 3 NHL rinks, a full pro-shop and two, glass-enclosed restaurants.

Of the eight DVCHC teams that will comprise the women's division, VILLANOVA and ROWAN are close enough to consider the weekend a home series.  AMERICAN, MARYLAND, ROWAN and RUTGERS will all join their men's team counterparts there.  VIRGINIA, NJ PHOENIX and the champion TOWSON Tigers will also compete.

Each day of the tournament will feature 4 women's games, plus 8 DVCHC men's match-ups.  With showcases, a total of 39 hockey games!


Fans can catch the game & grab a bite at IceWorks

AND THE WINNER IS:
Each & every moment of Showdown hockey is an important opportunity to move ahead.  Teams earn 1 point for every period won (.5 points if tied) and 2 additional points for winning the game.  If a squad plays strong, they could walk away with 5 points.  Struggle, and the losing team could rack up numbers, even in the loss.  The team with the most total points will take the crown.


SPECIAL GUESTS:
Besides the 24 university clubs taking part in the Showdown, high school players from around the mid-Atlantic will have an opportunity to play in showcase games (2 men's & 1 women's), meet coaches / teams at tabling events & get an idea of what playing college hockey is like!  In addition to the 8 women's programs in the tourney, LOYOLA, UPENN and SAINT JOSEPH'S will host tables.

Mark your calendars for the big show, we hope to see you there!
