Hatfield Ice Dogs
The Hatfield Ice Dogs Midget 16AA Blue Ice Hockey team traveled to Canada Jan 12th-15th to compete in the International Silver Sticks 26th Annual Ice Hockey Tournament. In order to participate in this tournament you had to win the regional SS tournament that was held in Sept.at Ice Line in West Chester. As the Eastern Region representative winners we earned the opportunity to participate. The Ice Dogs won 6 straight games including an overtime triller in the Championship game to hoist the “Silver Stick.” The team defeated Arvada Storm (CO) 4-0, Toledo Cherokee(OH) 5-2, Stonycreek Warriors(Ontario) 7-1, in the preliminary round. The elimination rounds saw victories over Orlando Jr. Knights (FL) 6-2 and Farmington Hills Fire(MI) 5-2. This takes us to the final game where we played the Oakland Jr. Grizzlies, another team from Michigan and won in overtime 2-1. It was an exhilarating game for all. The Silver Stick trophy will be placed in the Hockey Hall of Fame in Canada with our names on it as the 2012 Midget 16AA Minor SS Champions. Congratulations to all the boys for the great job they did. We are all proud of you!!!
