  • By Lonny Lovins This is what happens when Sharks meet Cyclones for the gold medal! Bad movies aside, the Cub final was amazing, and was played between the San Jose InlineSharks and the Mission Cyclones. The script for this game couldn’t have been written anybetter, even if it was written in Hollywood. The Cyclones and Sharks were mixing it up throughout the game, and the Cyclones weregetting the best of it, as they jumped out to an early lead. A few minutes later in the first period, the Shark

  • By Lonny Lovins   As we get ready to head out for the night, I want to reflect on a great start to our tournament so far.  There has been a lot of action, and a lot of great games, but one stands out in my mind. The Pro Division is supposed to provide the best action, and throughout the day it did not disappoint.  One of the best games of the day was brought to us by the Rink Rat Outcasts and the Puckfit Indians.  The Indians are comprised of the old guard, and some young bucks that were

  • By Lonny Lovins             The NorCal Cup kicked off this weekend at the Silver Creek Sports Plex, and while this is the first event that most of these teams have played since NARCh finals, many of them looked as if they were in mid-season form.  There were some new teams scattered in with the old guard.  The NorCal Wild burst on the scene with a few new teams, that have combined a lot of their local area talent into some formidable competition.  There were a lot of familiar faces

  • SILVER, CLUB, and CUB DIVISIONS NARCh CUB Division - As is normal with our Cub Division, there were only a few teams.  Two of them were pretty evenly matched, while the third gave a great effort each game.  This division was one our our easiest to seed, with the Fivehole Squarepants taking the top seed, the Detroit Mission Stars took the second seed, and Katios took the third seed. Cub Final: Fivehole Squarepants vs. Detroit Mission Stars.  This game looked as if it would be great on paper, a

  • I’ve been home from the NARCh FINALS for less than 12 hours, but I still feel like there’s work to be done.  We captured so many unbelievable roller hockey moments at this years tournament that I can’t wait to share the one’s with you that you have not yet seen.  I plan to do so through the offseason way more than ever before to keep you excited and thinking about the roller hockey and NARCh year round. It's personally rewarding capturing a special moment from our tournaments and getti

  • By: Lonny Lovins Today was the last day of our finals, and it was a bittersweet ending to a fantastic tournament.  I am happy to be done with the tournament, and out at our party, but I am also sad that I will have to wait until next year to see a lot of my good hockey friends, and colleagues.   The tournament was full of surprises, forgone conclusions, and great times in between.  The Germain Arena has climbed to the top of my list of favorite places that I have traveled for NARCh.  I get t
