After a little Thanksgiving break the Cuse will be back at it as they host the South Shore Kings for 2 games in USPHL Empire League action. Game times are Saturday at 7:30PM and Sunday at 1:30PM.
The Cuse is currently riding an 8 game win streak and stands at 15W-2L in league play which is good for 2nd place in the Northern Conference. The team is still chasing the league leading Aviators but with 4 games in hand the boys from Mountain Hockey will be looking to keep pace with 4 big home points on the line. The last time the Cuse played South Shore (3 weekends ago) it was an exciting 7-6 OT win as the Kings added 7 USPHL Premier players to their roster for the contest. The boys found a way to get the win as they came back late and Jesse Farabee won it in OT. The next day saw Mountain Hockey pick up an 11-4 win.
The Mountain Men will be looking to shore up our defensive effort this weekend while still trying to be one of the best offensive teams in the league. The boys are also getting ready for a big tourney in Toronto next weekend as they head to The Hill Academy Tourney to play the host Hill Academy team, the London Knights and the Ottawa Senators along with Everest Academy, another top Toronto Hockey prep school.
But first it will be great to be home and it should be a great weekend of hockey as the 18u and Elites are also in town. This weekend is an excellent chance for players and families to come to the rink and see the various levels of hockey in this ever changing landscape. Also for a real treat my O6 squad is also in town to play the CT Kings at 5:30PM Saturday and 8:30AM Sunday. Now that's a Hockey Weekend!
