The Manchester Flames U16 Major 1 team held off the Northern Cyclones in overtime to capture the U16 Tier 2 State Title. The team battled some tough competition playing both split-season teams from the NH Avalanche and the Northern Cyclones full-season Academy Team. Two games went into overtime, including the championship game where Manchester scored 3 minutes in to secure the title and their ticket to Nationals in March.
It took a complete team effort and all the kids really stepped up. Due to COVID issues, most of the kids had only skated once or twice over the 4 weeks leading up to the tournament. The kids were tired yet determined to finish this crazy year on a high note.
The MRYHA board would like to thank all the players and coaches for their perseverance in bringing home another State Title to the Flame organization.
Next stop, Nationals in March!
