U16 Blazers win the USA Hockey National Championship
Congratulations to the Boch Charles River U16 Blazers on winning the USA Hockey U16 Tier II National Championship. The team led by coaches Ben Dawson and Kelli Doolin turned in an amazing performance last weekend in Buffalo, NY. The team went 5-1 over five grueling days with wins over Carolina, Alaska and Connecticut. The girls won the championship with a tremendous team effort winning 2-1 versus a strong Marquette, Michigan team that had defeated the Blazers 1-5 in round robin play two days earlier. Coach Dawson noted that, "The girls all responded to that loss by going back to what we do best. Every player stuck to the game plan and gave us her personal best. I am so very proud of every player on this amazing team". Follow this link for the full story on the USA Hockey website: http://nationals.usahockey.com/news_article/show/373692?referrer_id=718915
