TRI CITY ICEHAWKS MIDWEST REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS!

TRI CITY ICEHAWKS SECURE MIDWEST'S FIRST SEED IN USPHL'S BOSTON CUP FINALS!!!

The Tri-City ICEHAWKS from Bay City, Michigan, Head coached by George Daniel & Assistant coaches Chase Dore & Eric Albrecht have punched their ticket to Bean Town for the USPHL Finals.  
 
Over the weekend the ICEHAWKS were able to knock off the Marquette Royals in two straight games with a great defensive mind set.  Before the game ICEHAWKS Head Coach George Daniel would tell his team.  "Let's make sure that we continue to do what we have done all year play defense first and if we do we will get our chances to score goals tonight".  On Friday night Tri-City did just that as they would put up 7 goals in three periods of play on Royals starting goalie Josef Dusenka to win 7-1 in game one of the series.  The ICEHAWKS would out shoot the Royals 44-17.  Tri-City forward #96 Benito Posa would get the hat trick in this game with #17 Sam Hanson adding two goals of his own and #2 CJ Bradburn geeting a goal as well.  The Royals lone goal would come from Christian Leeb.
 
With the ICEHAWKS up one game to none in this best of three game series looking to close out the Royals they knew it would not be easy.  The ICEHAWKS would keep in mind what Head Coach George Daniel told them the night before and they would get the same results with a 7-1 victory.  
 
Tri-City would put up 35 shots on starting net minder Josef Dusenka with #13 Lucas Rothe scoring the first goal of this contest a the 10:41 mark of the first period to make it 1-0 #10 Marks Mezsargs would score the second goal to make it 2-0 Tri-City at the 17:40 mark of the first period and it would be 2-0 ICEHAWKS after period number 1.  
 
In the second period the lone goal would come from #17 Sam Hanson to make it 3-0 ICEHAWKS after two periods of play.  The Royals would get 17 total shots on starting goalie Cody Foster in three periods of play only scoring one goal by forward Erich Walter.  Tri-City ICEHAWK forward #13 Lucas Rothe would net his second goal of this contest in the third period and #25 Addison Edwards, #4 Dakota Bohn and forward #17 Sam Hanson would also get his second goal of the evening to close out the game and move the Tri-City ICEHAWKS on to Beantown.
 
The celebration on the ice after the game would be a great site to see by the ICEHAWK fans.  "This team will celebrate for the evening and we will be ready to head to Boston on Monday afternoon for the USPHL Playoffs" owner Colleen Dore said.  Co-Owner Art Dore also comment that  "These young men have worked hard all year long for this moment they deserve this".
 
The Tri-City ICEHAWKS will travel to Boston on Monday afternoon to get ready for game one of the USPHL Playoffs (see schedule and times posted below).  To watch the games on line go to fasthockey.com for live coverage.  Thanks to all of our fans that have supported us through out the season.  GO ICEHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
