CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. — In front of hundreds of NHL and junior scouts, college coaches and agents, Mid Fairfield captured the USHL Fall Classic 14U Division championship over the weekend.
Led by Boston College commit Charlie Leddy on defense, the team defeated two talented teams in Saturday’s playoff action. Mid Fairfield downed Minnesota Blades, 3-1, in the semifinal before ousting Little Caesars, 1-0, in the final.
Perhaps most impressively, Mid Fairfield played without three of its top forwards. In addition to Leddy, the team’s most notable players were goaltender Brendan Holohan, defenseman Christian Wood and forwards Beanie Richter and Nicholas Capasso.
