The Champions

Last weekend was filled with thrills and chills as the Twin Valley Flyers House Mites reigned over the ice. Here is a look at the House Mite Champions from the 14th Annual Twin Valley Invitational Tournament:

Here is the article from The Eagle Times:

Mites take 5-3 win for the title

This past weekend youth hockey was in full swing at Kimball Union Academy’s Ackerstrom Arena.

The House Mites is a new very young team to Twin Valley. Players age 5-7 with just one year of learning to play hockey started playing full ice games in late February.

Friday night they stepped on the ice for their very first hockey tournament.

The Flyers defeated the Hanover Purple and Green teams and tied Hanover White to advance to the championship game.

On Sunday afternoon it was the flyers facing off against the Hanover White team for their first title ever.

Twin Valley came out strong and scored the first two goals. Twins Patrick and Jacob Hyjek set up two beautiful goals in the first period.

Hanover answered early in the second period with a goal of their own. Then it was Ian Schell who took a pass from Max VanDijk for a shot into the net.

Kyra Russman-Araya and Lukasz Ricci then set-up Patrick Hyjek again in front of the net.

Hanover rallied with 2 more goals setting the score 4-3.

Late in the third Jacob Hyjek took a pass from CADEN PERKINS to seal the 5-3 victory.

The Flyer defense made up of Haley McNamara, Jonathan Cloud, Cole Foss and VanDijk did a superb job keeping the puck away from Hanover.

Goal tender Gavin Harriman did an outstanding job between the pipes with 12 saves.

The Flyers are coached by Matt Foss, JODY PERKINS, Eric Russman, and Tom Schell.
