It was Super Sunday (11-9-14) for the Southern Stars as both the Midget Minor and Midget Major teams took home the gold! This is the third year in a row for Coaches Eric Roos and Rick Beckwith to finish on top of the Tier II Midget Minor state tournament and the second consecutive state championship since taking over the Midget Major team.
The first game of the day, the Midget Minors found themselves in a dog fight with a formidable Darien team, until they pulled away in the third period to win 9-5.
In the second matchup of the day, it was the Midget Majors up against a gritty Darien Major team, holding on to win 3-1 in a hard fought contest. Congratulations to both programs for once again meeting in the finals. Darien and SCYH have squared off for the top prize several times in the past few years, but Darien has been unable to get past a Roos and Beckwith coached team. So its off to Texas in March for the Minors and out to Michigan for the Majors, as both teams try to find that National Championship magic from two years ago. Captains Matty Horton and Matt Barnett are the only remaining players from that National Championship team and this March will be the third trip in four years to the big dance. We wish all of the SCYH hockey stars the best of luck, as they head off to excel with their respective High School and Prep School Teams. Will see you in March!
