The Champions banner is being nailed to a wall at Hommocks as we speak! Look out for it! Aidan told me last night he would sell everything in his bedroom, every signed puck or great trading card or treasured item...except for the Liberty Cup medal because "that was a fight...and I won't forget it. I wouldn't sell that medal for 5 million dollars".
I think all the kids feel this way, fighting through the dirty play to come out clean and on top. I think we were all so proud of our kids for fighting the good fight, but keeping their integrity and not stooping to the tactics of our championship opponent. And I think it makes us all appreciate our very own coaches; that they are building classy players and fearless players.
We were sad to miss you TQ, but you got us through the games leading up to the last day!
Coaches note on the tournament:
"We are so very proud of this team. Hard work, well behaved young men who went 5 and 0 and won a championship together!
We build on this and finish the year strong. Thanks to all the parents and siblings and families that made the trip. Without all of you we are nothing.
See everyone Saturday. Please stay healthy and get some rest.
Chris and Erik."
