The Squirt A team started the championship weekend with a game against the Mosinee Pride. It was a hard fought game with the A's getting their revenge winning 1-0 after a tough loss against the Pride in Waupaca three weeks earlier.
In the afternoon semi-final game, the A's took on the Hayward Hurricanes. The team took a 3-1 lead and Hayward fought back to tie the game in the third. With just under 6 minutes to go, an end to end rush resulted in the go ahead goal. Hayward refused to give up but a solid team effort kept them off the board and the boys earned their way into the championship game on Sunday.
In the championship game they took on the Fox Valley Blades and emotions were high. Unfortunately the Blades were too much for the boys on this day and they fell 4-0.
While an emotional loss, it still ended the season on a positive note, 2015 WAHA Squirt 2A Runner-up! This result is something all the boys and coaches should be extermely proud of. They worked hard all season, there were some ups and downs but they stuck together and proved they were a team to be reckoned with.
Congradulations to all the players and watch for your 2015 State Runner-Up banner to be hanging above your heads next season.
