UPDATE: 19U AAA Takes State Championship and Heading to Nationals!
The 19U AAA completed a two-game sweep of the Lady Rough Riders to win the Tier I 19U State Championship and advance to the USA Hockey National Championship Tournament being held in Michigan in April. The team easily handled the RoughRiders outscoring them 15-2 in two games, including a shutout. The team will spend the next month preparing for their return to the National Tournament after not qualifying for Nationals last season.
UPDATE: 19U AA, 16U AAA, and 10U All Claim State Championship Runner-up
After a hard-fought weekend of play, including several overtime games and tremendous shorthanded efforts, three Select teams came up short in their bid for a State Championship. The 19U AA played Colorado Springs and despite taking both games into overtime, they were not able to get the bounces needed to overcome the Tigers. Meanwhile, the 16U AAA team played their Championship tournament with heart and grit as they have all season with a short bench. In spite of only having 9 players at times, they took the Lady RoughRiders to a third game where they suffered a 0-1 overtime defeat. Finally, the 10U team ended a great run through their league and State Championship playoffs with their only loss in the State Playoffs coming as a 0-1 loss in the championship game.
Congratulations to all of these teams their success in the CAHA State Championship Playoff Tournament and we wish continued success to the 19U AAA team as they head to Nationals!!!!
