January saw the first regular season date of the New Year! Four league members were in attendance. The Empire, Sasquatch, Phoenix Rising and the Inquisition were in attendance. The Ottoman Empire has been improving quite a bit in their second season. Despite only putting up 3 points in January, of the 12 regular season games played 7 were one goal games. When the Empire begin improving their offense they will become a force. The Phoenix Rising spent the first half of the day going 1 and 5 but finished the day strong with a 5 - 1 second half to finish with 13 points. The Squatch had a strong day going 8-4 and was involved in quite a few of the most exciting games of the day. The Inquisition edged out the Squatch in the record department going 9-3-0-0 for the day. February brings an end to the Regular Season and March the THLH CUP Playoffs!
THLH Season XI League News
Season XI began with handing out the new 2023-2024 THLH League T-Shirts with the newly issued official Table Hockey League of Hershey logo. Season XI began after the shortest offseason in THLH History, and it seems as if the momentum from last year has shifted to the new season especially for the Co Rookie of the Year teams the Ottoman Empire and the Lancaster Longshots. Both teams put up a respectable effort. The Empire put up 6 points on the day but had 2 shut outs and the majority of their games were the one goal variety. The Longshots had their best league date ever posting 10 points, 4-8-0-2 record with 2 overtime losses and 2 shut outs. The Phoenix Rising had a very good day posting 14 points and 4 shut outs. The Inquisition moved the team back to their old barn, Sun Burn Stadium and posted a 11-1-0-1 record on the day.
Season XI is underway and the THLH looks forward to a full complement of league members participating in October.

The Inquisition had their worst outing maybe ever posting a 3-7-2-3 record. The Phoenix Rising and Sasquatch gained quite a bit of on the first place Inquisition.
