Wildcats Bantam Minor played in the NST Blizzard Challenge Tournament in Niagara Falls, NY.
Our Bantam team won 6-2 against the Tonawanda Lightning and 4-0 against the West Seneca Wings with their only loss in round-robin play came against the #5 ranked Canadian Bantam Minor team, the Cambridge Hawks.
With our Wildcats in 2nd place our boys found themselves in a rematch against the Cambridge Hawks playing for the Championship.
Our Wildcats played an amazing game! At the end of the third period, the score was tied 3-3. A nail-biting and scoreless 3 on 3 overtime lead to a shootout. Unfortunately, the Canadians beat us, but Victory is not always in the seen on the scoreboard! Our boys played their hearts out and represented the Jersey Shore, their team, and Coach Gibbons in an unforgettable game. Taking Second Place was well deserved!
