October 13, 2014
The Syracuse Mountain Hockey squad will host the Chinese National 18U team in a 2 game series on Tuesday Oct. 14th. The Cuse will play hosts to the Chinese National Team at 1:30PM at the Cicero Twin Rinks and the 2 teams will face off again at 7:00PM at Colgate's Starr Rink.The Chinese team arrived in the USA on Oct. 8th and early reports are they are a strong team. In their first game they lost 4-2 to the CT Rangers combined Premier/U18 team. In a note from the Connecticut coaching staff they stated the Chinese team played hard, fast and physical. It should be a very good test for a Syracuse team that is currently undefeated in their division of the USPHL. More importantly it should be a awesome life experience for our players.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_Taipei_men's_national_under-18_ice_hockey_team
