EDGE 16 U wins big !
Heading into the Syracuse Blazers midget tournament the 16U team did not know what to expect. Except of course that the reputation of “upstate” teams are tough. They entered the tournament to see what the competition would be like, should they get to the state tournament at the end of the season. Needless to say, these upstate teams were more than tough.
After playing three games ending in two ties and one win; the boys were facing their biggest challenge yet. The host team, the Syracuse Blazers, were ranked 15th in the nation. Our boys (playing with only four defenseman due to injury) came together and gave an incredible effort to beat the Blazers 3-1 and advance to the semi finals.
Although the boys lost in a tough first round game to the Binghamton Jr. Devils, coming away with a win over the strong Blazer team was more than a victory for all. Most importantly, the boys know they can compete at any level.
Great group of boys, parents, and coaches. Edge nation!
