Knights Corner - This Week in South Windsor Youth Hockey
Knights Corner - 2/8/16 Update
It's been a busy week in South Windsor Hockey.
1.  This Past Weekend
Pee Wee A beat Yale on Saturday 5-0 with shut out credit to goalie Hayley Gomez.  On Sunday, Pee Wee A defeated West Hartford with a crushing 12-2 victory.  Nice job Pee Wees.  Congrats!
Squirt A defeated Southeastern 3-1 on Saturday.  Nice job!!!
Squirt B traveled through the snowstorm on Friday to Providence to play before a Providence Bruins game.  Two photos below on our website of the Squirt B players who braved the winter storm to go play some hockey in Providence.  They had a great time watching the Bruins after their game.
Squirt C tied Cromwell 2-2 on Saturday and then went to dominate ECHO on Sunday with a 7-0 victory with shut out credit to goalie Bauer Larkin.  Squirt C's played with strong back checking and major offensive zone pressure.  First goal of the year for Alexa and best game of the year for Caroline.  This team continues to improve by executing what they work on in practice.  Great job!!!
Mite A continues to improve. The team is working hard on both ends making some great passes. It was a great team effort on Saturday in a cross-ice match-up against the Northeast Ice Dogs and then it was back to full-ice on Sunday against Southern. Although they lost the game, it was the team's most complete effort of the season. Chase Laramee and Colin Grieve each scored two goals in the game against Southern and Colin was awarded the coveted "Hockey Glove" after the game.  Way to go!
Mite FCI faced off against budding rival, the Southeastern Seahawks. After an extremely strong first period, South Windsor settled in and started locking down on defense with a strong back check and puck control. Working hard in net Carter Cornish made some challenging saves. Joseph Marchese and Andrew Wojnar were the players of the game, but all the kids got into the action with outstanding play.  Nice job!
2.  Goalies
South Windsor Youth Hockey has worked hard this year to develop its goalies, including providing free professionally taught goalie clinics this year.  The next free professional clinic is this week on Wednesday.  All goalies should attend.
3.  That Time of Year

5.  Quote of the Week

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.
