  • By Jeremy Ellis Today marks playoffs and finals in Division 1.  While many of the D1 players also play pro, the style of play is drastically different.  D1 is known for its up tempo run and gun style as opposed to the more deliberate methodical approach of pro.  With a 7 team division, one team would earn a first round bye with the #1 seed.  Five teams would make it through to the playoffs with 2 on the outside looking in.  From the start of the tourney the talk centered on the Vintage Bull

  • By: Lonny Lovins and Jeremy Ellis  Day four has given us the best games so far.  The pros are doing what the pros do. They are providing us with huge moments, at opportune times. Everyone wants the big money, as all of the teams have been skating their tails off to try and send their teams to the big game.  The kids are providing us with a lot of entertainment as well, as all of their championships are getting going.  The first championship of the day went to overtime, and it featured th

  • By: Lonny Lovins  It’s early here in Huntington on day three, and we may have already seen the game of the day.  In the PeeWee silver playoffs, the Revision Revolution and the Mission Bauer Raiders faced off in what played out as an instant classic.  The Revolution came in with a lot of momentum, and looked to take their tournament play to the next level, as they would build a three goal lead in the first period.  The Revolution were cruising to the next round, as a fourth almost guara

  • By: Lonny Lovins & Jeremy Ellis  Day two is almost in the books, and we are about to finish up with a classic Cowboys and Indians in the NARCh Pro Division.  It looks to be a real shoot-em-up.  The Cowboys are coming off a tough loss, hopefully they can circle the wagons, and get themselves back in the tournament.  The Indians have reservations about their first game as well, as they started slow going down by four goals, before charging late to earn a tie.  In the end, it should be

  • By: Lonny Lovins  Day one has been an absolute seesaw.  We didn’t have a mercy for the first half of the day, and we were still ahead going into the skills competition.  With our high level of signups for the skills, we got pushed back about a half hour.  This was due to holding up games to allow the skills to finish, then the mercies started rolling in.  Now we are running ahead by a half hour, and I am hoping the switch doesn’t flip on us again, as an early day is much better than
