Blizzard Jr Gold Tournament Champions
The Jr Gold team is in the midst of starting off the season with 9 games over the first 13 days of their season. So far they are 4-1. This included a 3 game sweep of their first tournament, the Blizzard Jr Gold Tournament in Siren, WI, the weekend of Dec 7-9. They opened up against Rosemount and cruised to an 8-1 victory in the opening round. Solid defense and explosive offensive was too much for Rosemount. This victory was followed by a win against a Lakeville North team that just came off a victory against White Bear Lake. Forest Lake Jr Gold defeated Lakeville North 8-3 again with offense leading the way. The championship game was set against Blaine who was 2-0 so far in the tournament as well. The Rangers pulled ahead and maintained the lead throughout the game. They beat Blaine 5-3 to capture the championship. Great fan support and great teamwork throughout the weekend helped lead the way for the Rangers.
