Knights Corner

Knights Corner - 11/28/16 Update

Here's the latest from South Windsor Youth Hockey.

1.  Thanksgiving Weekend Highlights

Bantam A was strong this weekend.  First, they went to Darien on Saturday and dominated with a 7-3 victory.  Then they hosted Darien on Sunday, playing them again, and beating them again, this time, 3-0.  Congratulations on the shut out to goalie Derek Leshak and congratulations on the hat trick to Zach Jarvis. Way to go Bantams!!!

Pee Wee B skated hard on Saturday against Watertown and notched a dominant 11-3 victory.  Congrats to Mazen Abunasra for a hat trick plus.  Great job Pee Wees!

Squirt A defeated the CT Riverhawks, 4-2, on Sunday.  Well done!!!

Squirt B celebrated Thanksgiving with a home and home against Northeastern. Saturday, they went to UConn and won 10-2 behind Jacob Wojcik's hat trick and five point game.  On Sunday, it was a 4-1 victory at home as Squirt B dominated from start to finish, never allowing Northeastern in the game.  The win streak is now 11.

Squirt C had a great weekend of hockey. They played at the XL center on Friday.  (Photo below.) The kids had a blast. It was a tough 2-1 loss but it pushed them to play harder and win their next two games. They beat Greater New Haven 6-4 in what has been reported as their best game of the year.  Liliana Ficaro had her first hat trick of the season and Noah Butler did a great job in net.  The Squirts then traveled out to the Gunnery to play Northwestern on Sunday and came out strong beating them 4-3. Mason Trombley was given a penalty shot which he put past their goalie, and the team again great goal tending by Noah with solid back checking as a whole. The kids came together as a family and their coaches couldn't be prouder of them.  Congrats!!!

Mites - All three Mite teams came together this Saturday for some friendly competition for the first (and hopefully annual) Mite Cross-Ice Jamboree. The Mite teams were split into three teams and competed against each other in a round robin format.  While two teams were battling it out on one half of the ice, the third team was either competing for time in an obstacle course or having fun playing "baseball-hockey".  After 2 1/2 hours of skating, the teams all celebrated together and shared stories in the Arena restaurant during the After Party!  A huge thanks to all the coaches and volunteers that game together on short notice to make this event a great one!

In House 2 competed in a Jamboree in Bolton on Saturday and the team played great.  They passed the puck around and showed great teamwork which led to some great games.  Each of the players contributed to the teams success   (Photo below.)


2.  Board Meeting

Friendly reminder that at South Windsor Youth Hockey, the monthly Board meetings are open to all of the families in the organization.  The next Board meeting is next week, December 6th, at 7:30 at Nomad's.


3.  Twitter

Another friendly reminder that South Windsor Youth Hockey Association maintains an active Twitter account.  Check it out at @SWYouthHockey.


4.  High School Hockey

It's that time of year again.  High school hockey is starting.  Many of South Windsor's Bantam players who are high school age will be trying out for their respective high school hockey teams.  To all of those trying out, South Windsor Youth Hockey wishes a big good luck.

For those of you interested, the South Windsor High School Bobcats hockey team plays out of the South Windsor Arena.  You will definitely want to come and see some of these games.  It's great hockey to watch and it's a way to show support for local hockey players, especially since many of them have come through our youth hockey organization, and many of them actively help our program with their time and efforts on the ice with our youth hockey kids.

If interested, their website is at http://www.hometeamsonline.com/teams/?u=BOBCATHOCKEY&s=hockey .  It's not yet updated for the 2016-17 season, but once it is, it will list the players and their game schedule.


5.  Quote of the Week

"It's a funny thing, the more I practice the luckier I get."  -- Arnold Palmer

Hope everyone has another great week of hockey.

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.
