Congratulations to our JYH High School Boys Moose for taking home the championship at this weekend's Tapia #18 Memorial Cup! It was an exciting weekend with lots of hockey being played at the Snow King Sports and Events Center. Our High School Boys JV Moose fought to a 2nd place finish in the JV division. The JV team played strong and each player worked hard each and every shift as they battled for the remaining roster spots on the Varsity team that will be traveling to the Wyoming State High School Tournament. The Varsity team went 2-0-1 in round robin play with a tie 6-6 to a Bozeman Varsity team which beat them 3 weeks ago in Salt Lake City by a score of 5-1. Our Varsity Moose team received another rematch with Bozeman in the finals and won 4-3 taking the Tapia #18 Banner. The JYH High School Boys have a few weeks off and then are on the road to the state tournament in Gillette, Wyoming in hopes for another run to the championship. Congratulations Moose!
Congratulations Jackson 14U Lady Moose! Our Jackson 14U Lady Moose travelled to Sun Valley over the weekend where they took home the championship banner! Here's a re-cap from coach Matt Somers: "Some of our 14U girls teamed up with some 14U's from Park City and SLC. On a busy 3 game Saturday, we dropped game 1 to the Boise Fireblades I 0-2, we then beat the Sun Valley Suns 7-2 (including a 1st period goal by August Otto, the 2nd period game winner by Hanne Somers and an assist on an insurance goal by Jana Turner) and tied the Boise Fireblades II 4-4. Sunday morning we beat Idaho Falls 8-3 (Assists by Ila Musclow and Jana Turner) to advance to a rematch with Boise Fireblades I in the finals where we battled to a 2-0 victory with a very solid defensive effort. The girls enjoyed playing against friends and familiar faces from Sun Valley, Boise and IF and had lots of smiles and great camaraderie with their new friends from Utah." Congratulations 14U Lady Moose!
