Jr. Admirals finish strong!

The Jr. Admirals finished their season strong by placing second in the York City Ice Arena-6th Annual Spring Youth Hockey Tournament. After dropping the first game to Valley Forge they beat Reston and Montgomery County they faced Valley Forge again in the championship. They fell 5-2 to a much older team but they gave them a run for their money.

Sadly this was our last game with Evan, Nolan, Jacob and Big Ben. We'll miss them and we wish them the best of luck in Squirts!

It was also great to see everyone, thanks for making the trip.

Admirals Game

The Norfolk Admirals invited the Jr Admirals to play a little exhibition game during the intermission. This is always a crowd-pleaser and the kids absolutely love it.

Admirals win, Brett scores his first goal!

The Jr. Admirals beat Roanoke yesterday to win the Breakaway at the Beach Mite Championship! Not only that but Brett scored his first goal!!! He was excited and everyone was glad to see him get his first of the season. There was a flurry of activity in front of the Roanoke net and eventually Brett was the one that put it in. I saw everyone congratulating him and the ref skated over and said it was #16! Brett immediately skated over to me (I was running the clock) and asked, "will you buy me that $100 stick now"? I made the deal with him at the beginning of the season that I would buy him a green stick when he scored his first goal. I gotta pay up. Luckily we found a less expensive green stick!!!

More later...I'll get pictures and video posted tonight.

Two down, one to go!

The Jr. Admirals won both their games today and will play for the tournament championship tomorrow! Game one was against Chesapeake and the Admirals won 5-2. The Chesapeake team has improved a lot since we saw them last month. Little Ethan got his first goal, congrats to him!

Next the Admirals beat Roanoke and Brett recorded an assist and almost got his first goal! He had three or four good whacks at it, at point blank range. When he failed to get it in he tried to skate around behind the net to try the other side. Everyone was cheering for him and it was really exciting. Maybe tomorrow.

Stay tuned!
