Bantam Minors Take 2nd Place in Philly at Bauer Tier II Tourney
The Bantam Minor 2003 Lions took the ice six times over the Columbus Day Weekend, playing up a level in a very competitive Tier II tournament in Philadelphia.
Playing against older and bigger players, the Lions used their skating and skill to capture three wins and a shootout loss in the four-game round-robin format, finishing first in the six-team bracket earning them the number one seed for the tournament playoff round.
In one of the most competitive and exciting tournaments in the team’s history, the Lions beat the Ramapo Saints in their first game 3-0, the New Jersey Devils 3-2 in a shootout, lost to the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 also in a shootout, and beat the Hollydell Hurricanes 3-0 to qualify for the playoff round.
In the semifinal game against a very physical Ashburn Xtreme team from Virginia, the Lions fell behind 1-0 with five minutes to go in the third, only to capitalize on a Power Play to tie the game with just two minutes to go in regulation. With 47 seconds left, the team was able to convert on a goal mouth scramble to take the lead and win the game in remarkable fashion.
The Lions played Hollydell in the finals and held a 1-0 lead with seven minutes to go in the third when Hollydell was finally able to put a goal on the board. They capitalized again shortly thereafter and held on to win the championship 2-1.
Lions Coaches Chris Braglia and Lenny Capri couldn’t be prouder of their boys for all the hard work that the team has put in to this point in the season.
“Although this wasn’t the outcome we desired to achieve, the boys are really coming together with our systems and adapting to the more physical and faster game at the 14U Level,” said Coach Braglia. “They are playing against AA and AAA big, tough teams and are not backing down. They are showing character and a never-quit attitude that will serve them well in our quest for the LIAHL Milner League Championship. They represented the Nassau County organization well, and should be congratulated for a job well done.”
Congratulations to the Nassau County Squirt Major Lions, runners up in the Squirt A Division at the recent 2016 Wallingford Youth Hockey Columbus Day Tournament. The Lions went 4-1 on the weekend, outscoring the opposition 20-3 before falling to Yale in the finals.
