Some of the best women’s ice hockey in New York State will be coming to HarborCenter when the Western New York Girl’s Varsity Ice Hockey Federation hosts the 2015 New York State Girl’s Varsity Ice Hockey Championships. This is the first time the NYS Championships have been held in the West.

The two-day event opens Friday, February 6 with Section III facing Section VI and Section X facing Section VII. Those games will be at 6 p.m. and p.m. respectively. On Saturday, Feb 7, the winner of those games will face off at 1 p.m. for the New York State Championship.

With playoffs being held this week around the State the teams participating are still unknown. Last season the Championship game ended with Skaneateles and Potsdam as co-champions after four overtimes. There is no shoot-out in the girl’s varsity sport.

In Section III playoffs are underway between Alexandria Bay/Thousand Islands and Oswego and Skaneateles and Ithaca. In Section VII the leader in points is Beekmantown and they will be facing either Lake Placid or Saranac in the semi-finals of their section. Albany Academy and Plattsburgh are battling for the other spot.

Section X is coming down to Potsdam at St. Lawrence and Canton at Massena to determine who comes to the NYS Championship. Locally, Orchard Park/Frontier, Kenmore and Williamsville are in the lead in
points with Section VI playoffs scheduled for Thursday (Jan. 29); semi-finals on Tuesday, February 2 and the WNY Championship Thursday, Feb. 4. Those games are being held at Northtown Center, Amherst.

Tickets for the NYS Championship are $6 for both Friday’s games and $6 for the Championship game on Saturday. Tickets will be available at the door.
