North Shore Storm Peewee A Team Storms Into the Hibbing/Chisholm Tournament

The North Shore Storm Peewee A team took first place at the recent Hibbing/Chisholm Tournament that took place over three days at the Hibbing Memorial Arena and the Fairground Arena from De­cember 15-17.

The games were a bit different for the young hockey players as they played by District 12 rules. Where the team is used to fifteen-minute periods, the tournament games periods were seventeen minutes. Penalties were two minutes instead of the normal one and a half minutes.

The Two Harbors Youth Hock­ey Facebook Page touts, “They proved they could handle the challenge. Nice Work!”

Their first game of the tournament was a tight one against Hibbing/ Chisholm, ending in a 5-4 score with the Storm in the lead. Previ­ously in the season, the Storm tied against Hibbing/Chisolm. Up next, on the same day of the tournament, the team lost to Armstrong-Cooper 9-5.

They came back raring to go against Duluth East the following day, as evidenced by the whopping 7-3 score. The team had played Duluth East earlier in the season and won by one-goal.

Later that same day, the team would take on Waseca. Many goals were scored during the second game on Saturday, but the Storm scored more. The game ended at 12-7.

On Sunday, the team would once again take on Duluth East for the championship. They scored ten goals against Duluth East’s three and took home the trophy.

The big win came after a sev­en-game losing streak that began in early December for the team. The new momentum will hope­fully propel them to great success going forward into the season.

Congratulations, North Shore Storm Peewees!
