Peewee AA (U12) CHC Tier II State Champs
 

“We want to win the tier 2 State Championship” that was the goal set by the boys on the Peewee AA team when they began the season on August 6th. With roughly 76 teams competing to do the same, it’s easier said than done.

The State Tournament began on Thursday as WH faced a tough Yale 07 AA team. The boys finished with a victory downing Yale 3-1. On Saturday WH shutout Northwestern 2-0 and later in the day finished even with Wonderland 2-2. Moving on to the Semifinals on Sunday as the number 1 seed, WH Peewee AA team matched up against Greater New Haven Warriors and played like a team that wouldn’t be denied a bid for a shot at the State Championship. Collectively they peppered GNH goaltender resulting in a 5-2 victory and on to the last step in completing their goal, playing in the State Championship. On Sunday evening the boys would face Wonderland AA, a team they previously tied 2-2. To make things more difficult they would need to beat them in Wonderland's house. When you take a great group of boys, put them around a great group of coaches under a youth hockey program in West Haven that supports their kids in all the right ways, great things happen. WH Peewee AA accomplished their goal as they jumped all over Wonderland defeating them 4-0. This one is something they’ll never forget.
 

What started as individuals ended as a team. They will now take their 48 wins 9 losses and 4 ties to Regionals. Best of luck in the Regional Tournament held the weekend of March 13th in Rhode Island.


 

 

Congratulations to two of WHYH’s players for being selected Division 1 and Division 2 Freshman Player of the Year from @CTHSHockey!

U16 Team - CHC Tier II State Champs

 

The West Have Blue Devils U-16 team, who is currently ranked 15th nationally in Tier II, captured the Tier II state championship in thrilling fashion this past weekend. The weekend started off with a semi-final game against the number 4 seed Darien Blue Wave. During this game, The Blue Devils jumped out to a 4-0 lead 7 minutes into the game and never looked back. They got scoring up and down the line-up and defeated Darien 11-0 to move on to the championship game against the Wonderland Wizards.

 

During the championship game on Sunday morning, the Blue Devils jumped out to a 2-0 lead getting goals from Anthony Ramano and Eli Brubacher. It was a back and forth game, but the Blue Devils were able to lock down their defensive zone coverage and win the game 2-1. It was a true team effort by each and every individual!

 

Both coach Erik Roos and Rick Beckwith have been in these situations before, as they have won 8 straight U-16 state championships. We want to wish the team luck in Troy, Michigan (April 2-6), where they will be competing once again for a national championship. We hope that history will repeat itself in 2020, as Roos and Beckwith will be heading back to the same venue where they captured their 2013 National Championship. 

 

A job well done by the U-16 players and both coaches! Good luck with your high school teams!
