The Cedar Rock Storm JV Ice Hockey team won the WMJVHL Tier III championships Monday March 11 at the Griff’s Ice House. They played the Lakeshore/St. Joe Warriors JV team and won in a hard fought game. Both teams came to win and provided exciting and action packed three periods of hockey.
What is special about this win and this team is the boys played the entire season with just nine skaters and two goalies against teams that had double and triple the number of players. Despite being out numbered, the boys faced every game with gut, heart and hard work that clearly paid off. They surprised the league time and time again becoming the team to watch. Through sheer determination they made it to the playoffs and won all three of their playoff games and then the final championship game by a score of 3 to 1.
Congratulations Cedar Rock Storm on a fantastic season! The coaches and boys should be very proud of their accomplishments and the title of Champions.
