Last weekend my boy Nicholas was in a hockey tournament (playoffs) for Lakeland Hockey Association. It was so exciting!!! On Friday, the Cyclones beat the #1 ranked team and on Saturday, they beat the #2 ranked team. The championship game on Sunday was a nail biter as it went into overtime. Alex Snyder, a defenseman, shot the winning goal with over a minute left on the clock.

It has been a great season of hockey. The coaching staff and manager were awesome! Not only did they show the kids how to play hockey but they taught sportsmanship and respect for the game which is more important to me than winning.

I am so proud of my 12 year old son Nicholas. He did not know how to skate 2 years ago. To see him work so hard to catch up on skills and his determination to succeed makes this Dad Happy.
