The young athletes that comprise the North Shore Storm 10U team are on a major roll. The North Shore Journal last reported that the girls’ season was 14-0-2. After the last weekend in January, they are now 22-2-2 having recently won their home tournament.
At the Rocky Taconite Tournament held in Silver Bay, the team first found themselves up against Superior that Friday afternoon. The game ended in a shut out with a score of 5-0 and the Storm advanced to play against Minneapolis White the next day. Again, the game resulted in a shutout. This time the Storm had a snowman-y 8 goals on the scoreboard.
The third game was against Crookston. The Storm won again with a score of 5-2. The win secured their spot in the championship game.
“Championship Sunday brought some nerves for the Storm,” said Alicia Norman, the Storm’s 10U Girls hockey team lead. “Their last two tournaments ended in a heartbreaking loss in overtime, finishing in 2nd place.”
According to Alicia, the girls were ready to break that championship game losing streak. They were pitted against Roseville/ Mahtomedi. The Storm took 1st place, winning 2-0, another impressive shutout.
“The 10U Storm have been having an exceptional season so far, working hard to develop their team play,” said Alicia.
Congratulations to the North Shore Storm 10U Girls hockey team for their big win and success throughout their season!
