Knights Corner -10/24/16 Update
Here's the latest in South Windsor Youth Hockey.
1. Game Highlights Bantam A defeated local rival ECHO 6-0 on Sunday. Great job to the team and congrats to goalie Derek Leshak for the shut-out.
Bantam A1 had a very strong weekend, winning both of their games. On Saturday, they beat Southern 11-3 with a dominant performance. Then they followed it up on Sunday with a 7-4 win over Stamford, avenging a loss to Stamford earlier in the season. According to their coaches, the team has demonstrated excellent team play and creativity as part of the team's balanced attack and looks to continue its hot streak next weekend. Well done and congrats!
Pee Wee A faced off against Putnam (NY) on Saturday and controlled the game with an 11-5 victory. Nice job and congratulations, especially with only eight skaters for the game, including an alternate from the Pee Wee B team.
Squirt B tied West Hartford 1-1 on Saturday and then moved forward to a 2-1 win over Darien on Sunday. Nice job and congrats!
Squirt C had a very high scoring weekend. They beat ECHO on Saturday, 8-2, and then tied Avon 8-8 on Sunday. Mason Trombley continued his scoring streak with hat tricks in both games, and the whole team worked hard together on both sides of the ice. Coaches are proud of these kids who had a great weekend. Way to go!
Mite A marched to the XL Center on Sunday afternoon to square off against Enfield. After a slow start, they started winning puck battles and ended up putting in 9 goals on 32 shots to seal a 9-2 victory! The team awarded Sam Sutherland with the "stinky glove" award for his hard work all over the ice. After the game, the team gathered for a photo op before heading up to watch the Wolf Pack battle St John's.
Mite B continued their season against ECHO on Saturday. Landon Ayotte stood tall in goal, leading the team to a near shutout. MacKenzie Sherwood disrupted ECHO's rhythm every time she was on the ice. Strong team play and great passing were on display for the entire game. On Sunday, the Knights traveled to Newington and faced an aggressive Central team. Carter Cornish and Hunter Desmarais worked hard at both ends of the ice. Camron Kadish was always there with an assist, moving the puck with ease. The team's selfless play allowed South Windsor to emerge victorious.

In House I is the introduction to hockey basics. Children that have completed the 4 (four) week Learn to Skate program are now ready for the In House I program. Each child is individually developed based on their ability, and then taught more intensely on the aspects of skating, stick and puck control, and basic game instruction. The players gain confidence on their skates and in using a hockey stick, so the cross ice games become a fun environment. The program is directed by USA Hockey coaching and instruction, which is universal throughout the US. In House I begins after the first Learn to Skate session has completed and meets on Saturday and Sunday mornings for an hour. The Saturday and Sunday schedule will be provided to you by the Association.
In House II is the continuation of the In House I program. This is open to all young players. The emphasis is on skill development and introduction to small area games in a fun environment.
