Check out how the kids are doing in the first report of the season.

SQUIRT A

    The Squirt A's have had a great start to the season. They started with a home opener series the weekend of November 16, defeating all three of their opponents:  East Grand Forks (5-2), Fergus Falls (10-1) and Fargo Angels (13-2). After Thanksgiving, they came out strong on Saturday with another win at home against May-Port (5-0).  Sunday they travelled to Roseau where they again came out on top, battling to a final score of 8-5. The boys are excited to travel to Monticello this upcoming weekend to battle for the 'Moose Cup.'

SQUIRT B

    Our Crookston Squirt B team played their hearts out on Sunday with a double header against the EGF Squirt B Black and Green teams. Although the outcome of those games did not end in their favor this time, those kids gave it their all with shining moments of teamwork and even a few celebratory goals. They are learning to play together and grow as a team. Cannot wait to see how they progress throughout this season.

10U

    The Crookston 10UB Girls kicked off their season with a home game on Friday against East Grand Forks. The game ended in a loss of 6-4, with goals scored by Emma LaPlante (2) and Logan Brekken (2). Saturday, the girls traveled to Bemidji for a couple of games, as well as a team lunch and a visit to Paul and Babe. Against the Bemidji 10UB team, they won 11-2 and against the Bemidji 10UA team, they lost 10-0.  Scoring for the day for Crookston were Alexa Bartrum (2), Mya Bower (2), Emma LaPlante (2), Claire McDonald (1), Adelia Weiland (1), Logan Brekken (1), Emmi Trostad (1) and Ava Martin (1). The team played well defensively and passed the puck well to tally those goals for the win. The girls will be playing in the Breezy Point Tournament this upcoming weekend.

PEEWEE A

    Congratulations to Ty Larson being named the Pee Wee A player of the week.  Ty capped off a tough northern road swing by scoring five goals in Sunday’s win over Baudette. Ty’s willingness to play multiple positions allowed our team to put up a strong fight against Roseau and Warroad, two traditional powerhouses.

PEEWEE B

    Friday, the PeeWee B's played very well, their best game of the season. Unfortunately, they lost a heart breaker in overtime in EGF. On Saturday, they played at home against Roseau and came out of the gates hard and were up 2-1 half way through the second period, but Roseau was able to jump ahead and win 6-2. On Sunday, they played Moorhead at home and were able to get some kids to try some different positions. The score was not in their favor,  but the kids like to learn new positions and still had some fun.

    Player of the Week is Weston Benoit. He scored his first ever goal this weekend and has come along way in his first year of hockey. He is truly an inspiration for any kid out there that wants to join hockey later than normal. His work ethic and drive are fun to watch.

12U

    The 12U girls started their season off strong by winning their first three games: Northern Lakes 6-3, Brainerd 3-1 and West Fargo 4-2. The girls worked hard and played well as a team. Thanksgiving weekend, the 12U participated in the Grand Forks Angels Tournament and had two wins against Williston and GF Wild and two loses against Fargo Freeze and Winnipeg Titans.  

    This upcoming weekend, the 12U will host Warroad and Moorhead on Saturday and travel to EGF on Sunday.
