Squirt Cubs Highlight Banner Season for MYHA Teams
by posted 03/17/2019

If they'd brought home any more championship banners, we'd have to rename a section of rafters at Hommocks Park Ice Rink after them. "Squirt Cubs Corner" has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

Eight days after winning the Hudson Valley Hockey League Squirt Premier-Atlantic Division championship as the #4 seed in the playoffs, our 8U Cubs won the Calgary Division at the CanAm Challenge Cup up in Lake Placid, NY. The Cubs opened their tournament with three straight wins, then lost to the Long Island Gulls, 5-0, in the final game of round robin play. They met the Gulls again in Sunday's gold medal game, and this time came away with a 2-1 win on the 1980 Rink inside the Herb Brooks Arena.

Three other MYHA teams earned medals during their long weekend in Lake Placid. The Bantam Cubs came home with silver medals after losing a heartbreaker to the Junior Railers in the Vancouver Division final, 3-2, in the fourth overtime period. Likewise, the Bantam Tigers -- who went 4-0 in round robin play, outscoring opponents, 26-6 -- earned a silver medal, losing to Rye, 4-3, in the Sochi Division championship. The Squirt Cheetahs brought home a bronze, defeating Scarsdale, 5-1, in the Grenoble Division. 

While MYHA teams were in Lake Placid and the 15U Girls were in Connecticut competing in the CGHL playoffs, the 16U Girls spent their weekend in Amherst, NY -- site of the New York State Amateur Hockey Association state tournament. Mamaroneck went 3-0 in pool play and advanced to the state semifinal to play Brewster, the team it had beaten in a February shootout at Hommocks to earn the #1 seed in the East Region. This time, the Tigers built a 3-2 lead midway through the second period but gave up the game's final three goals and lost, 5-3. 

Congratulations to all MYHA teams, from Mites through Midgets. We hope our 240+ players, their families, and all of our coaches enjoyed their seasons, and that everyone made some memories and more than a friends along the way.
