Rock N' Roll Cup Champions!
12U Red team poses with the Rock N' Roll Cup trophy after a 5-0 weekend in Cleveland!
Coach Shufelt's 12U Red team brought home the hardware from the Rock N' Roll Cup in Cleveland, Ohio the weekend of November 8-10!
Competing in the 12U A Bronze Division, the Blades went 4-0 in preliminary play with hard fought wins over Monroe County 12U Red - Scottsville (3-1), Gilmour Gladiators (3-2), Oakville Ogres House Red (4-3) and the Aurora Ice PW AA Mixed (5-2).
On Sunday, the Blades awaited the outcome of morning games to find out their opponent for the Final, which turned out to be another matchup with Aurora. Typical of the entire weekend, a tight battle found the game scoreless after 1. However, the Blades tireless pressure eventually broke through and they erupted for three goals in the second stanza, never looking back. They added another goal in the third to take the final by a 4-0 score. Dylan Weldon notched a hat trick and Alex Ketz had the shutout to lead the Blades. Weldon was named team MVP for the tournament.
The Blades were never outworked the entire weekend. Coach Shufelt, Paiement and Weber preach a strong work ethic with emphasis on relentless forechecking and backchecking. The boys followed that plan and were rewarded for their efforts!
