U16 Girls Jr Hurricanes Win the Rock n Roll Tournament in Clevel

 

U16 Girls Jr Hurricanes Win the Rock n Roll Tournament in Cleveland
 
The U16 Girls team traveled up to Cleveland this past weekend and captured gold in the Rock n Roll Tournament.
 
The girls dominated throughout the weekend with strong offense and suffocating defense winning their first 3 games by scores of 5-0 against the Cleveland Lady Barons, 3-1 against the Finger Lake Freeze, and 7-0 against Southern Pittsburgh which qualified them for the championship game.
 
In the championship game against the Cleveland Lady Barons, neither team could find the back of the net with top notch goaltending being shown on both sides. The Lady Hurricanes finally scored with a little over 3 minutes in the game. But with just 22 seconds left in the game and the Lady Barons having pulled their goalie, they tied it up. After a scoreless 5 minute overtime the Lady Hurricanes were able to score once in the shootout which proved to be enough as the Lady Barons could not, sealing the championship and bringing home the cup.

U18AA Jr. Hurricanes Win State Championship - Nationals Bound

 

U18AA Jr. Hurricanes Win CAHA State Championship
Earn Trip to U18 Tier II Nationals
 
The U18AA Jr. Hurricanes won the CAHA U18 Tier II State Championship this weekend in Pineville NC in a nail-biting overtime that saw the Hurricanes defeat the U18AA  Jr. Checkers  4-3  to advance to Nationals in E. Lansing, MI, April 6-10.
The Jr. Hurricanes demonstrated passion, grit and teamwork throughout the weekend by winning three round-robin games against the Jr. Checkers A (5-0), Jr Checkers AA (3-2) and Carolina Eagles (3-1) to retain their #1  seeding and advance to the Championship Game  against a  Jr. Checkers team who they had gone 2-2 -1 throughout the regular season.
 
With the state championship and a trip to Nationals on the line the Hurricanes came out hungry.  The Jr. Hurricanes scored 2 goals in the first period to take the lead early on. However, the Checkers responded with a goal with 11 seconds left in first and another goal at the beginning of the second to tie the game.  With 1:38 left in the second period once again took the Hurricanes lead.  The Hurricanes continued to battle hard for the puck and fought hard to maintain the lead but a hooking penalty at the beginning of the third period gave the Checkers the opportunity score and tie the game at 3-3.    Regulation ended with neither team scoring again.    As overtime was about to start the Jr. Hurricanes knew they would have to reach deep to win the game.  At 5:51 into the overtime the Hurricanes achieved the goal they had set at the beginning of the season. They had earned a trip to Nationals. Coach Rich Brouwer said “ Kudos to the boys for checking their ego at the door - they are heading to Michigan for Nationals because of a total team effort - every single player contributed in their own way to this Championship. At the end of the weekend they did not want to have any REGRETS  - mission accomplished.” Congratulations!

Bantam AA U14 National Bound!

 

The Jr Hurricanes went 2-1 in the Round Robin with wins against Carolina Stars (4-0) & Wilmington IceHawks (6-1), and an early morning loss to Carolina Eagles (0-2).  The Jr. Canes advanced to the Semi-finals facing the Pineville Falcons for the 1st time this season.  It was a hard fought battle between two hungry teams ready for the next step, and the Canes stepped up with a big 4-1 win. 

On Sunday it was a rematch against the talented hometown rivals, the Carolina Eagles, for the Championship Finals. The teams were evenly matched with a head-to-head season record of 2-2-1.  The Eagles took an early lead in the 1st with the Canes tying it up late in the 2nd.  Like most good championship games it came down to the final period. The Canes finished strong after the 2nd period intermission scoring 3 unanswered goals to give them a 4-1 win and the title of Bantam AA State Champions!  The boys are proud to be bringing home the banner and for the opportunity to represent NC and RYHA at the USA Hockey National Championship Tournament in Coral Springs, FL 4/6-4/10.  

Throughout the tournament there was some exceptional net minding by the Jr. Hurricane goalies, including a shutout for Cole Gamel.  The goalies were outstanding between the pipes letting up only 5 goals off 128 total shots through 5 games.  The Defense was solid in minimizing the number of shots on net, battling for loose rebounds, and delivering big, timely hits.  The D was instrumental in the break-out allowing the forwards to use their speed and creativity to generate scoring opportunities.  Goals were scored by all 3 forward lines through the tournament, with Ryan Finch securing a Hat Trick in the Semi-Final game.   The Power Play produced 4 of the goals and the a combination of speed, strength and a disciplined system were key to a very successful Penalty Kill. 

This State Championship title was a true team effort!   Thanks to the new RYHA Head Coach Ryan Weber and his veteran assistant coaches Colin Kurtz and Andy Haldane. 

Good luck in the Nationals to the U14 Jr. Hurricane Bantam AA team…Jackson Cowan, Eric Catalano, Ben Calhoun, Ryan Finch, Cole Gamel,  Jack Haldane, Caleb Karie, Kayden and Kyler Kurtz, Zack Little, Sean Neu, Wesley Nipper, Ben Rosenthal, Cole Slocum, Alec Stabile, Ben Weingand, and Sean Wilson!!!

Jr Canes PW A White Wins PW A Lower CHL Championship

 

Coming into the CHL Tournament weekend, the Jr Canes PW White team were in the
lead in the North division, with the Pineville Falcons coming in with a strong
undefeated season in the South.  Both teams were primed and ready to compete for
the title.


Following great performances in the first 2 round robin games, both Pineville
and Jr Canes White came into their last qualifying game with 2-0 records.  The
game was an intense and physical match with both teams going hard at the
opponent.  In the end it was a 2-2 tie and a great preview of the championship
game.  In the Semi-Finals, Pineville played Jr Canes Red for the slot in the
finals.  This was a tough game pushing both teams to the limit.  The match ended
in a shootout, with Pineville defeating the Red team and setting up a rematch in
the finals.


With the stage set the teams hit the ice for a fast paced, high energy game. 
The energy on the ice being matched by the crazy fans in the stands, and some
extra help from our fellow Jr Canes teams.  With horns blaring and cow bells
ringing the Jr Canes jumped out to a 4-0 lead.  But Pineville would not
surrender so easily.  Reminiscent of their earlier match, Pineville rallied back
and tied the game in the 3rd.  Refusing to see their tournament hopes spoiled,
Jr Canes White rallied for 3 more goals to put the game away.  In the end the Jr
Canes prevailed 7-4, including a 5 goal game from big man Cam Todd.


The victory came as a great end to an even better season.  Let's Go Canes!
