Knights Corner
Knights Corner - 2/20/17 Update
 
Here's the latest in South Windsor Youth Hockey.
 
1.  This Past Weekend
 
Bantam A only played one game.  It was a good one.  With only eight skaters, they defeated Avon, 4-2.  The team was led by Collin Hall with a Playmaker (three or more assists in a game).  Way to go Collin and congrats to the team!!!  Also, Bantam A qualified for the CHC State Tier 3 Tournament and will be playing their tournament during the weekend of March 15-19 in Northford.
 
Bantam A1 finished its Tier 4 CHC State Tournament this past weekend with a 1-1-1 record and was two goals shy of moving to the semifinals via the tiebreaker.  The team competed extremely hard in its three games with only nine skaters.  The team's "Hard Hat" for the Tournament was unanimously awarded to goaltender Hailey Gomez for her impressive performances.
 
Pee Wee A has also qualified for the CHC State Tier 3 Tournament and will play their Tournament in Bridgeport during the weekend of March 15-19.
 
Squirt A has also qualified for the CHC State Tier 3 Tournament and will play their Tournament during the weekend of March 15-19 in Danbury.
 
Squirt B played a home and home this weekend against the highly regarded and ranked Northern Lights Silver team.  They head into their CHC State Tournament this Thursday on a high note.  On Sunday, they were able to win 2-1 behind two short-handed goals and a 29 save performance by Bauer Cordeiro Larkin.  Nice job!  Squirt B plays their State CHC Tournament this coming weekend, beginning this Thursday evening, in Bridgeport.  Good luck Squirt B's!
 
Squirt C played at the Dunken Donut Center against the Northern Rhode Island Vikings and won 5-1. Fun experience for the kids and parents who were also able to watch a great game against the Penguins farm team.  Way to go!  Check out the attached photos.
 
Mite A traveled to Newington for their CHC State Tournament. The group of four teams - ECHO, Enfield, Whalers and SWYHA - squared off with some evenly matched competition. South got out of the door early on Thursday winning their game against the Whalers 4-2 with an empty net goal to seal the victory.  On Saturday morning, South hit the ice for 7:00 am start time against Enfield. South had a hard time getting going and fell behind a stingy Enfield team before falling 7-2. Heading into the last game, South needed a victory to advance to the Finals. Standing in their way was an ECHO team that was in the exact same position. The two teams battled back and forth but ECHO was up 5-3 with just over five minutes to go. Not giving up, South scored the next goal and took over the momentum.  After a number of chances around the net, it was Colton Andrews who went upstairs and buried a shot top corner to tie the game. The game then ended as a 5-5 tie. It was an interesting situation because the tie left all four teams at 1-1-1 through round-robin play.  Due to the various tie-breakers, South ended up not making the finals. Coaches and parents could not have been prouder of the way this team worked and battled and never gave up!
 
Mite B plays their State CHC Tournament this coming weekend, beginning this Saturday in Northford.  Good luck Mite B's!

In The Exchange Area

On our web site, we have an area called "The Exchange."  In this area, you can post items you have for sale, for free, or your lost and found items.  By default, items will stay out in the exchange area for 2 weeks, but you can extend the time or delete the item at any time during the 2 weeks.

 

It may be best to start your description with FOR SALE or LOST or FOUND or FREE, then what you are posting - like SKATES or HELMET or GOALIE LEG PADS.  We're open to suggestions... hopefully this area will be helpful.

 

Example:  FREE - Reebok gloves in good shape.
