2011 U16 Tier II Girls Alaska State Champions!


This weekend, I travelled to Anchorage Alaska for a 3-game series against the Alaska Icebreakers. This was a very important series. The winner (best 2 out of 3 games) earns the title of Tier II U16 Girls Alaska State Champions and Tier II U16 Girls USA Hockey Pacific District Champions.

We won game 1 by a score of 2-1. I passed to my teammate Marissa K. breaking up the middle. She shot, collected her own rebound, and scored. It was sweet! She's amazing.

Game 2 went to overtime tied 0-0. in the final minute of the 1st 10 minute overtime, I got the puck and some room. I ripped a high, hard slapshot from the point. The goalie gave up a big rebound and Marissa dove for the tap in. It was awesome, and like I said...Marissa is amazing!

We lost the 3rd game in the last 30 seconds on a good goal, 2-1. It didn't matter though...

Out of the high school playoffs!  We lost to Eugene today 6-2.  We did not play well as a team.  I had the assist to our opening goal, but we didn't really get much going after that.  It was only 3-2 at the end of the 2nd, but it was all downhill from there.  Now, time to focus on preparing for District select camp and Nationals!

High School Playoffs

We started our double elimination high school hockey tournament last night against South Medford.  At the end of regulation we were tied 5-5.  We lost in the sudden death overtime when one of South's Spartan players scored on us.  It's all good, because I had a sweet power play goal last night!  I also had a nice assist out of the corner to Daniel G. but I was not officially credited with the assist.

So it goes.  Game today at 1:00 pm to avoid elimination.

District Select Camp...

...third time's a charm?  I made it to the Pacific District select Camp again.  This is my third trip, and my dad says it'd be really nice if I could go the extra mile and make it to the National Select camp this year.

I guess I'll get to work on that...

Team AK U16's win against U19's!

The U16's won tonite against the U19's by a score of 2-1.  Jerin had another goal.  They finished round robin play 1-1-1. Not sure where that gets them in championship play tomorrow.  Updates when we have them.
