The Pee Wee team completed the weekend with a perfect 5-0 record. Team was sufficient in theoffensive zone but more impressively was the tenacious defense and positional
hockey it played allweekend long. In the preliminary round team outscored its opponents 23 – 1, but the playoff round got a lot tougher. Team won its semi-final game vs Yale 5-2 and completed its perfect weekend with a 3-2 victory over the host Wallingford Hawks in the finals .

run through the tournament. With only a few practices and gam es under their belts, the bantams came together
like a well-oiled machine, culminating in a decisive victory in the Championship game on Monday, defeating the Southern Stars 6-1. The coaches were so proud of the boys, as this achievement was a full-team effort, with every member of the team contributing to the victories in some way.
