The #1 ranked Major PeeWee AA Canes headed up to Chicago to defend their title win last year as the Carolina Eagles. The fresh look Canes went 4-0 in the round robin securing a spot in Sunday’s quarterfinals against the IL Vipers. The Canes prevailed 4-1 in a 2 period mini-game setting up the semifinals against #2 Tier 2 Rockford Roadrunners. Early goals and an excellent powerplay resulted in a 6-1 final and set an appointment with the unbeaten (21-0) Palm Beach Hawks. Tired legs and a lengthy penalty kill in the 2nd period finally gave way to allow the Canes to score the game winner with 5 minutes remaining. Adding an empty netter to seal the deal, the final was 4-2 and back to back titles were secured. The Canes scored 44 goals and gave up 9, continuing to lock down other teams offense through great goaltending and D. The offense was carried by the combined effort of Cole Stankavage, Ryan Hedley, Noah Fitzsimons and Dylan Chernoff. The team moves to 22-1-1 for the season. Great work Jr Canes!!
