Well Done to the whole team for their unbeaten run during the tournament. Every single one of them played together, passed well and spoke to each other as a team and that brought them the results, win after win, game after game.
They had the short straw of being 1st on the ice, early Saturday morning facing Sheffield Swampfrogs, but they got off to a flying start winning 5-0. Before they had too long to cool down they were back on against Manchester Storm and continued with their great start winning 8-1…..time for a well deserved breakfast break and off ice team bonding.
Soon it was time for the match they really didn’t want to play….against their team mates, we know how hard it was for them all but someone had to win, sadly Penguins B just couldn’t find the back of our net but didn’t give their team mates an easy time, making them work hard for every goal they scored with Caiden saving an amazing 43 shots during the game…..Well done to both our teams.
Lastly they were faced with Junior Belfast Giants and after a slow start with them moving play back up the rink every time Penguins got close to their goals, then eventually they found the back of their net and the goals didn’t stop….Penguins won 7-0, putting them into 1st place in the Semi-finals against 4th place Belfast Sunday lunchtime.
Belfast brought all they could but the Penguins were more than ready for them winning 5-1 to face Manchester Storm in the final.
What a great final with both teams really wanting that win, but the Penguins kept their heads and soon found their winning way finishing the game 5-2.
It’s been a long time coming for this team and it was well deserved, each and every player skated their socks off, worked as a team and won as a team. Well done Penguins A.
They even managed to have 3 players win places on the All-Star Team, congratulations to Flynn, Liam & Rocco.
