Playoff Game 2: Prowl (1) 5, Admirals 3

The Jr Admirals played another great game yesterday but came up short against the other Peninsula team. They took an early lead and started the second period 1-0 but the Prowl is a much older and experienced team and they kept plugging away and eventually finished the second period 3-2. Towards the end of the third they put it away with a pair of goals and you could see the wind come out of the little Admirals sails :-(

I was very pleased with Brett's hustle for the second straight day and proud of how much he's improved in his first year. He's the youngest on the team and several of the other small kids will have 3 full years to play together so look out!

We have two tournaments coming up and I hope to take lots of pictures and video so check back for updates.

Playoff Game 1: Prowl (2) 3, Admirals 1

The Jr Admirals played their hearts out today but came up short against the Prowl 2 team. Both teams played a great and very exciting game. Evan was the only Admiral to get on the board and our very own Brett spent 2 minutes in the penalty box for boarding. We have at least one more playoff game tomorrow morning so stay tuned.

No pictures because I was running the scoreboard

The Regular Season is over

The Jr. Admirals ended their regular season on a high note! They struggled with this particular Prowl team all year but today they played their hearts out taking an early lead on an incredible spin around goal by Evan. However Prowl 2 is great team and by the end of the first period it was all tied up at 2 each.

At the end of the second period the Admirals were down 4-3 but still well in the game.

With 1:13 left in the third period the Admirals tied it up at 5 goals a piece on another goal by Evan and assisted by none other than Brett! It was his second assist of the season and it was a great one. Evan took a shot from the right face off circle and the rebound went straight out to Brett. He took an awesome shot and the rebound found Evan who was able to sneak it in!

However the Prowl is a strong team and with 51 seconds left in the game they scored the game winner.

Tomorrow the Jr Admirals play an exhibition game against the Chilled Pond Mites. Next weekend we start the playoffs, March 10th & 11th we have a tournament here in Virginia Beach with Chesapeake and Roanoke attending and on March 22-24 we travel to York, PA for a another tournament.

Stay tuned for more updates!
