PeeWee AA's to play in State Final & Bantam A's to play for Third in State!


Attention all Jr. Rivs fans!!!  After a great weekend, the Illinois State Championship (a.k.a. The Blackhawk Cup) journey continues for two of our teams!! 

The Bantam A team will be playing for 3rd place in State in their bracket this coming Tuesday night at 8:20 pm up at the Addison Ice Arena. After losing a heart breaker to the No.1 seed on Friday night, Coach Gale and his team picked up two wins on the weekend to advance to the third place contest. Good luck to the team in their game this Tuesday evening, March 3rd!!!

The PeeWee AA team also played this past weekend, winning two and tying one in their round robin bracket. They handled their first two games with 5-3 and 5-0 victories, while  earning a 1-1 tie in their third game on Sunday against the No. 1 seeded Bruins.  As both the Bruins (4-3, 5-0, 1-1) and our Jr. Rivs had two wins and a tie during round robin play, a tie-breaker was needed to determine who would play in the Championship game.  Our PeeWee AA team earned that right and will play for the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP at the Edge Ice Arena next Sunday March 8th at 2:05 pm. 

We hope anyone who is able will travel up to both games to support and cheer on Coach Gale and the Bantam A's, as well as Coach Lune and the PeeWee AA's!!

PYHA would like to wish all the best to both teams!! Congrats on a job well done!
