PeeWee AA Liberty Cup Champs

 

The boys did not have any games since before Christmas but they needed to come out strong since we were playing Montgomery Blue first on Saturday morning at 7am!  They were still shaking off some holiday rust and we tied 4-4.  Next up on Sunday were 2 New York teams: the PAL Sound Tigers and the Long Island Ice Cats.  The boys were ready on Sunday and won 5-0 and 12-1 respectively.  With a tie and 2 wins, this tied us in the standings with Montgomery but on Sunday night, Montgomery lost to the New Jersey Freeze.  The Freeze is the team we were going to face on Monday morning for our 4th game.  A win or tie with the Freeze would send us to the championship game, a loss would mean we would have to go into all kinds of math for the tiebreaker.  After a GREAT effort by both teams, we lost to the Freeze 3-4.  So starts the math….and the math went our way so off to the Championship game we went!  The boys came out fast and never looked back, they won 4-1 over the Freeze.  The team effort was there from all 17 players as well as our awesome coaches and it showed!  Everyone contributed and the smiles on their faces as they did their victory lap with the banner said it all!

Squirt Major AA Win Gold

 

The Squirt Major AA team rolled into Pittsburgh for the Three Rivers Cup riding an 11 game win streak.  They came away with the Gold Medal and their win streak intact, now standing at 16 games.  Firing on all cylinders, they started with a bang on Saturday against Team Compuware posting a 5-0 win.  After a 6AM Sunday morning warm-up in sub-freezing temperatures and a quick jog to the rink, the Jr Hurricanes jumped out to an early 3-0 first period lead against the Kensington Valley Renegades.  They only scored 1 more the rest of the way but that was enough for the 4-2 victory.  That evening, the goals kept coming against the Pittsburgh Predators for another 5-0 win.  That win clinched the #1 seed and a spot in the semifinals where they would face the Charlotte Jr. Checkers for the 5th time this season. Their previous meetings may have been close, but that wasn’t to be in this one as the Jr. Canes secured a spot in the final with a spirited 7-2 win.  The final was a rematch against Team Compuware.  Again, the Jr Hurricanes jumped out to a 4-0 lead.  Compuware fought back in the 3rd with 2 goals late but that wasn't enough to overcome the great defensive play by the entire team and 4-2 was the final.  The Jr. Hurricanes had 8 different goal scorers for their 25 goals and only allowed 6 goals against, including 2 shutouts. This was a championship earned by the skill, dedication and heart of every forward, defenseman and goalie on the team.

Noah Hanifin Surprises 10U Jr Canes at Garner Practice

 

On Wednesday, January 18th, the 10U AA Major Jr Canes received quite a surprise at their practice. While attending the Bauer World invite back in early Nov, a team mom submitted a picture to Bauer as an entry to win free sticks for each player on the team.

 

Unknown to the team, the picture was one of 7 selected, and Noah Hanifin, in conjunction with Bauer Hockey, showed up at practice and presented each of the players with their new sticks. Not only did Noah present the sticks, but the event was covered by local Eyewitness News 11.
