It was a great start to the season for The Junior Hurricanes 9U Squirt AA Minor team, coached by Andrew Barron. We started off the season with a tournament Victory. They played in The Southeast Early Bird Tournament in Wake Forest, NC. The newly formed team started off strong with a 5-3 Win over The East Coast Eagles Squirt AA team. Unfortunately, Canes fell short with a 5-2 loss against The Carolina Lightning Squirt AA team.
Labor Day morning proved to be a fresh start with The Canes defeating the East Coast Eagles A team including a shut-out for Ryan Kalina. This set up the final Championship game vs the undefeated round-robin Carolina Lightning. The Canes came out strong in a back and forth high scoring game. In the end, it was a tremendous effort on both parts but The Canes won the Championship game with a 7-5 win. Congratulations to The Junior Hurricanes on the first tournament win of the year!
Bantam A wins Southeast Early Bird Tournament RYHA Bantam A Jr Hurricanes went undefeated through the tournament and won the championship game with a 6-1 win over the East Coast Eagles. Team was lead with some strong goaltending by Varun Atree and Cole Wilmoth and scoring throughout the tournament came from all three lines. Congratulations to the Bantam A team!
