Congratulations to our JYH 19U Girls for bringing home the State Tournament Championship trophy in the WAHL Girls High School B Division at last weekend in Cody, Wyoming! The Lady Moose went undefeated over the weekend, capping off the tournament with a 5-2 championship game victory over the Cheyenne Capitals. Congratulations Lady Moose on a fantastic season and state championship!
The Jackson Squirts went 7-0 to win the Littleton President's Day Tournament over the weekend. The boys played hard from start to finish beating teams from Colorado, Nebraska and Texas. A fantastic weekend of hockey included the Avs and Oilers game with the McDavid hat trick on Sunday afternoon. Coaches couldn't be prouder of this great group of kids. Thank you to all the parents for the long travel weekend in less then perfect conditions. Go Moose!!
It was a big weekend for both Jackson Youth Hockey Bantam A and Bantam B teams as they each took home the championship in their respective divisions.
The Jackson Bantam A team was dominant going 4 and 0 winning their division with a 7-0 shutout win vs Sun Valley. Led by solid goaltending, Jackson earned the #1 seed coming out of pool play. On the weekend Jackson outscored their opponents 27-3 en route to their second tournament championship in 3 weeks!
The Jackson Bantam Bs went 2-1-1 in their round-robin play for the Home Tournament weekend. Fortunately, their scores allowed them to make it into Sunday's Championship game as the second seed, where they faced a tough Vernal team to whom the Moose had suffered a 4-6 loss on Friday afternoon.
The B Championship was incredibly tight and intense, and the Moose charged back from a 1-3 deficit to tie the game at 3-3 in the middle of the 3rd period. With strong goal-keeping and tenacious skating, the Moose scored again with 3 minutes left in the game, taking the 4-3 lead...which they held onto to take home the B-DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP banner!
Congrats to the coaches and the players for a job well done!
