UPDATE: 12U CCYHL Team Takes 12U State Championship!
Congrats to our 12U CCYHL team (6-7-3 in regular season play) with a storybook ending to a long season with a CAHA state championship tourney win! The team defeated Hyland Hills PeeWee B Black (5-8-3) on Saturday 6-1 for their spot in the Championship Game on Sunday. In the Championship game, they defeated Littleton PeeWee B Black (3-10-3) 5-2 with five different players scoring goals and 25 of 27 shot save performance in net. Congrats to the team on a successful season!
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!!!!

As the season begins to wind down that means playoff fever is in the air! This past weekend the 10U CRHL, 12U CCYHL and the 12U MSGHL teams competed in their respective league playoffs. All three teams had outstanding seasons. The 10U CRHL and 12U CCYHL teams culminated their seasons by competing in the league championship games.
The 10U CRHL team defeated both the LHA Squirt White and LHA Squirt Red teams to advance to the Championship game. In the Championship game, the girls played the AYHL Squirt Maize team and not for a lack of effort were not able to overcome the AYHL team. Coach Lukasezck's comment on the girls' effort was "The effort they put in does not go unrecognized." as he shared several positive comments from the parents from the teams the girls played to highlight this fact. He added on the girls playing in the boys league this season, "we are closing the gap and proving we can compete and be successful. This is a lesson which the girls will carry a long time!" The 10U CRHL team will now head on to the CAHA State Playoffs this coming weekend.
Meanwhile, the 10U team was not the only team making noise in the world of Colorado boy's hockey this past weekend. The 12U CCYHL team competed in the CCYHL PeeWee league playoffs this past weekend. They defeated the Jr. Buffs PeeWee B team on Saturday morning and then followed that up with an afternoon win against the BHC PeeWee B Black team to advance to the Championship game on Sunday. The effort all weekend was outstanding by the 12U team, but in the championship game, they were not able to prevail against the NCYH PeeWee B Blue team. The 12U CCYHL team will also be playing the CAHA State Championship Tournament this weekend.
Finally, the 12U MSGHL team qualified for and participated in the MSGHL playoffs this past weekend as well. The team finished ranked 5th in the 12 team league with a strong effort all season and was the only one of the three CSGHA teams to advance to the MSGHL playoffs this season. Though they worked hard they were not able to advance in the playoffs. They will play their final season tournament in Monument the weekend of March 17th.
Congratulations to three teams and good luck to both the 10U CRHL and 12U CCYHL teams on their participation in the CAHA State Championship Tournament this weekend!
