ASTON, Pa. - Skating at their home rink, IceWorks, the Delco Phantoms beat out two New Jersey teams and fellow DVHL member the Wilkes-Bare Jr. Penguins for 14U B Atlantic Affiliate Championship. Competition was level in the final game, with the Jr. Penguins and Phantoms needing an overtime period before the Phantoms could raise the banner.

In the end, it was the Phantoms who managed to snatch the win and take home the affiliate banner.
