DEVELOPMENT TEAMS COMPETE AT DALLAS TIER I TOURNAMENT

Lockdowns and restrictions currently prohibit recreation in Washington, but in Texas over the first weekend in December three of the four Wenatchee Development Teams had the opportunity to participate in the Tier I Invitational, played at various rinks in the Dallas – Fort Worth metroplex.

The U18 Wenatchee Wolves went 2-3-0 over the weekend, capped off with a thrilling 5-4 come-from-behind over the Texas Tigers, with Tyson Shaw netting the game winner as Braeden Bovey picked up the win in net. Drake Flynn and Rylan Marcum each netted 4 goals over the weekend. The Wolves, playing in their first game action of the season, came up short in the opening three games before closing out the weekend with a pair of wins.

Likewise, the U16 Wenatchee Wilderness were seeing their first game action of the season. The team earned 5 of 6 possible points in round robin play, beginning with a 7-0 win over the San Diego Saints 16U and 4-3 win against the Colorado Springs Tigers on Friday. The two Friday matchups were followed by a 9:45 am game on Saturday against the Arizona Bobcats, which the Bobcats claimed in a shootout. Later that evening, the Wilderness vs. Bobcats rematch was for the tournament championship, and Arizona skated to a 4-1 win. Defensemen Connor Jensen (2g, 4a) and Stuart Carruthers (3g, 2a) led the way offensively over the weekend, with forwards Coen Wood (2g, 3a) and Loghan Weber (2g, 3a) keeping pace. Xaus Landry was solid in net, posting a sparkling 1.50 goals against average and .921 save percentage with over 100 minutes played.

The U14 Wenatchee Wolverines played 4 games in Dallas, and though they came out without a win, they were very competitive in each game. Robby Berry led the team in points, while six different skaters recorded a goal. Wyatt Beck and Kael Jackson turned in solid performances. Andrew Lacrosse and Thomas Cafarelli split time in net and were credited by the coaching staff for a stellar showing.

After a day off, the U18 Wolves and U16 Wilderness traveled for a midweek set of games in Phoenix, while the U14 Wolverines returned home, set to travel to Salt Lake City for the weekend.
