Congratulations to the DBT 05 boys on winning their 4th MAHA District 2 title in a row with a decisive 10-1 victory over Grosse Ile. Additional congratulations to Nic DiSanto for being named Game MVP for recording a hat trick and an assist in the championship game.
On to Port Huron for the 2019 State Finals!
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 MYHockeyRankings.com Tier 2 Bantam A rankings. Way to go boys!
After slow start against Sylvania 05 Friday but managing a 3-1 win, the team kicked it into gear Saturday morning coming back with 3 goals in the 3rd period to take game 2 vs Fort Wayne 04AA 5-3. The boys found their stride Saturday afternoon defeating North Olmstead (Ohio) Bantam A 8-2 and continued with excellent team play in the Championship game Sunday destroying Fort Wayne 8-1.
Congratulations to game MVP's Ryan Rainey, Aiden Cookson, Nic DiSanto and Bantam A Division MVP Tyler Kostora.
Go Belle Tire!
