The Junior Hurricanes 15U AA team travelled to Winston Salem for the CHL Championship tournament Feb 29/Mar 1 as the top seed.
The Jr Canes took on the NC Force in game one, winning a tightly contested game 3-1. The team displayed a work ethic and discipline that would be a forecast of things to come.
The Jr Canes came out quick in the second game against a dupleted Raleigh Raptors team. The Raptors showed grit and determination in the face of the flu and injuries, pushing the Jr Hurricanes, but ultimately falling to the Canes 4-2.
The Canes faced the Triad Storm in game 3, overpowering the Storm early and jumping to a 6-2 lead. The Storm fought back scoring a couple of late goals, ending with a score of 6-4 in favor of the Canes.
In the Championship game, the Jr Canes left no doubt and scored early. The Jr Canes kept the pressure all game and finished victorious with a 5-1 Championship victory.
The team accomplished their Championship run through a combination of solid goaltending, ferocious forechecking, and stingy defense.
Congratulations to the Jr Hurricanes 15U AA CHL Champions!
