Winter Meltdown Finalists/MHR Top 10

By Al Loebach, 01/23/19, 7:30AM CST


The Dearborn Belle Tire 05 team started out hot the defeating OJG 3-1 and KV Rebels 6-1 on Saturday after a snowy drive to Hazel Park.  The boys cooled off on Sunday but managed a 4-2 win over Novi then lost 2-0 to the St. Clair Shores Red team.  It looked like the boys were losing steam over the long weekend fighting for a 4-4 tie against Rochester Purple on day 3 which afforded them second place in the 5 game round-robin at 3-1-1.  The SCS Red team came out hot in championship game at their home rink, scoring 4 early goals on the clearly tired Belle Tire team who got better as the game went along but could not recover from the deficit losing 6-1.  The long weekend took its toll but overall a successful weekend for the team.

Their efforts this weekend were good enough to move the team into the top 10 in Michigan for the first time in the Tier 2 Bantam A rankings.   Way to go boys!
