Stallions are proud to announce that Squirt 2008 Goalie Liam Lucey was one of the 2 goalies chosen to participate in the November 27, 2018 challenge! Liam will be participating along with a CYA goalie, CYA player and a TI player. Congratulations Liam!

Additionally, Max Beemsterboer on the Squirt 2009 team was one of the final three shooters on Saturday, losing to the eventual qualifier by only one goal!

Our own Cathy Bergmann spoke to Liam after the competition and asked him what it was like to be in the final round. Always cool as a cucumber Liam told Mrs. Bergmann, "There were six shooters left and each got 3 shots, the other goalie let up 9 and I only let up 2."

What was the best part of Liam's day?  "It was nice having my teammates cheering me on."

Congratulations to all our Stallions, and best of luck Liam!
