It was a great finish to a difficult season as the White team skated to a 2-1 OT win last night over rival Glenbrook South. The game was knotted a 1 a piece for the last period and a half. The shifts were long and the players legs were getting tired, until Benji Friedman broke free halfway through the overtime and found the twine to seal the victory. Congratulations to all the players and coaches on all their efforts, and also to Brett Gerber for taking charge of organizing the playoffs. #warriors4life

2020-21 Deerfield Warrior Senior Class
Despite all the challenges from Covid-19 this season, the Warriors and Giants managed their best to replicate the typically raucus and chippy Rivalry Game that is annually played on Thanksgiving Eve. As part of our shortened regular season, the two teams agreed to have this league game count as the official rivalry game for the 2020-21 season. Then after a gritty performance by the boys in Red, and also finding the twine seven times, the Warriors prevailed by shutting out their district counterparts. Veteran scorekeeper, announcer and team DJ, Sam Schwartz was on hand to enhance the fan experience in what could be his last time working this game. The D113 Rivalry is known as the wildest and most exciting night of HS hockey for these two prestigious hockey clubs, and the teams never dissapoint. Looks like it's still a great time to be a Warrior. We are Deerfield!

Your Board, and especially your coaches committee, has been hard at work searching for the next hockey director/coach for the Warriors. We have found him and his name is Shawn Brown! Shawn comes to us with plenty of High School coaching experience, most recently on the bench of New Trier Green. Prior to NTG, Shawn was the Hockey Directory and Varsity Head Coach at Libertyville/Vernon Hills for 5 years. He was also the head coach at NT White and Notre Dame for a couple of years prior to that. In addition to Shawn's extensive coaching resume, he played at a high level as well. As a youth, Shawn played at CYA for 4 years, 4 years at Loyola and 4 years at Northern Illinois University where he was the Captain for 3.
Deerfield Hockey is proud to welcome Shawn to the Warrior Family!
