U18 Teams would compete head-to-head in Spring Showdown Final!

In the U18 division the Ice Dogs would send two teams to compete in the 6 team division.  Our U18 - Team BLACK was made up of 2006 aged players (with some 04 players) and Team RED was made up of mainly our 2005 aged players.  Neither team would loose a game in the round robin with both also posting victories in the semi-final to set-up the head-to-head championship game!  The Championship was close as expected... tied 2-2 through regulation time, no scoring in the 3-on-3 OT to send the game to a shootout.  In the shootout Caleb Tiffin-Seminara would score the only goal to give Team RED the win.  Over the weekend Alex Lucas lead all scorers putting up 9 points in 6 games (3 G, 6 A) for team BLACK.  The Line of Lucas, Robert Hoffman and Liam Raven had 20 points.  For team RED scoring was spread out with Caleb Tiffin-Seminara scoring 6 goals and 8 points.  Matt Worsley put up 8 points as well followed by Jacob Budney, Sam Reda, Kaden Goggins and Kevin Demeules all with 6 points on the weekend.
