U13BB Win International Silver Stick Finals!
The Haldimand River Kings U13BB team attended the International Silver Stick Finals tournament in Pelham Jan 12-15.... 

The first game was against Capitals Academy (from Washington D.C.) They came out strong and River Kings were down 2-0 not even 2 minutes into the game. The nerves were settled and the River Kings came back with 6 straight goals to win 6-2.
Game 2 saw us playing the Santa Clara Blackhawks (from California). The team was ready for this game and took a 7-1 win.
Game 3 had the Kings playing against New Hamburg. This is the team that beat us in the finals of the Regional tournament. This game was back and forth. The River Kings were able to tie the game up with 8 seconds left, however, off the face off, New Hamburg scored with less then 1 second left to win 6-5. The River Kings finished 2nd in the Round Robin and played Capitals Academy for the Semi Finals. This game was a tighter game then the first one. The River Kings were able to pull off a 2-1 win. This made for a rematch with New Hamburg in the Finals. The motto for this game was "3rd time's the charm". The River Kings came out first, and got a goal 2 and a half minutes in. This game became a goaltending battle. New Hamburg tied up the game early in the second period. The River Kings would regain their lead before the end of the second period. The River Kings were up 2-1 heading into the 3rd period. The 3rd period was a fast paced back and forth game that saw the River Kings play a great defensive game and not give many chances for New Hamburg to score. At the final buzzer the team succeeded and beat New Hamburg to be the Finals Champions!!
Special thanks to the many Haldimand River Kings supporters who showed up to watch and cheer on our team in the final game.
