The NoVA Ice Dogs 16UAs won the Clearwater Beach MLK Invitational Tournament in Clearwater, Florida with a 5-3 victory over the Hyland Park Jaguars from Colorado. Coach Bryan Oakeley's squad won the opening game over the eventual runner-up 4-3 in a tightly contested, hard-fought battle, then settled for a 1-1 draw against another Colorado team, before securing the top seed in the championship with a resounding 4-1 victory over a Fort Myers, Florida team in the final preliminary game. After soaking up plenty of Florida sun, the rejuvenated Ice Dogs jumped out to an early lead in the championship rematch and dominated the Jaguars en route to a 5-3 victory and the Clearwater Cup. A fantastic weekend of sand, sun, fun and hockey!
WOW our coaches look spiffy and the NoVA boys and parents had a great weekend of hockey.
