The PYHA Bantam All-Star team that played in the Luck of the Irish tournament eliminated the first seed team from Joliet to go to the championship. They lost to Pekin in the championship, but these kids all played their hearts out and Nate Cooley was named Bantam MVP for the tournament. Second place is impressive for a group of kids who played less than 10 games together prior to arriving in St Louis. Congratulations Bantam All-Stars!
The Midget All-Star team came in second place, and Terrin Keil was Midget MVP. The PeeWee All-Star team made it to the championship game as well. Well done to all the PYHA All-Star teams.
The PeeWee Majors won the NIHL Gold Championship game 6-1. They finished the season with a 15-2-1 record and went 4-0 in the playoffs. They are now going for the state championship and are in the final 8.
