  • by Alex Morrison   This was a weekend of extremes in the Philly suburb of Broomall, especially temperature wise, as our final qualifier of the season comes to a close.  Friday started off with torrential rain showers, Saturday greeted us with cool weather, and the final Sunday brought on sweltering heat, bringing the rink well above 90 degrees.  We were able to put a full day of games in Sunday, working past 5pm, as our friends up north spent their half day at the arena, eventually gettin

  • By Jeremy Ellis We close in on our final few games of Day one here in Mississauga.  The Hershey Centre has put in a long day and the teams are starting to feel it just a bit.  It is pretty rare these days for a mens team to log four tilts in one day, but that is exactly what our 9 team Jr/Mens division did today.  While some players have no issue with the workload, a few of the veterans are already plotting a date with Ms. Icy Hot tonight. It has been an action packed day here with rarely a c

  • By Lonny Lovins The games are flying up here, as we get ready to head into our first final of the weekend.  The two teams meeting for the Mite crown, The Oakville Coyotes and the Mississauga Mission Rattlers, met earlier today in a spectacular round robin game.  The Oakville Coyotes pulled off a big win in the 11-10 barn burner.  We expect the championship game to be just as exciting. The Men's/Jr. Division is providing a lot of strong play as well.  While the cream of the crop is going to b

  • by Alex Morrison   We have been at it here at Marple Sports arena for almost 12 hours now, arriving at the rink a couple hours early this morning to get everything set up, as our gear from the Pittsburgh regional last week didn't get in until quite late last night.  The good news for Mike Vickerman and I is that we are healthy and able to get through these long days with no complaints, eh.  I know that it is sometimes tough to survive the long NARCh regional season, but us veterans know h

  • By Jeremy Ellis We are rocking and rolling here in Mississauga and this rink is ABUZZIN'!  In the country of mullets, we're serving an all you can eat buffet of heavy metal. Lonny and I have been treated to some spirited match-ups so far here this morning.  Across all age divisions, these players have come here today with one goal in mind - to be crowned a champion!  Each of our 5 divisions are up and running and teams are approaching the second games on their schedule.  There are a few fami

  • By Daryn Goodwin It’s good to be back in Vegas for a NARCh Tourney.  It’s been a few years since we’ve had an event here and Vegas is an obvious draw where people can have fun away from the rink as well. I’ll admit I was a little skeptical when I first walked in this building back in November a few weeks before the Centre was to open it’s doors to the public.  To say that had a lot of work to do is a gross understatement.  Adam Stio is one of the partners in the business along with

  • by Alex Morrison   The final weekend of the NARCh qualifying season has finally come.  We have 3 events taking place over the next 2 days, with Daryn and Nick running the Las Vegas event, Jeremy and Lonny in Mississauga, Ontario, and finally Mike and I in Broomall, PA.  There won't be much of a contest in blog writing, as Jeremy and Lonny will be fighting for computer time to get their rambling blogs in... they will come in first and second place.  Daryn usually writes very informative b

  • By Jeremy Ellis The 2014 Pittsburgh regional is one to remember!  47 teams showed up this weekend at Bladerunners this weekend across 6 divisions.  The hospitality was great, the people friendly, and the hockey action packed!  Let’s dig in and break it down! MITES The Mite division featured 5 teams so we were able to hold a Silver and Gold championship.  From the drop of the first puck, the Butler Cobras Grey had the look of the team to beat.  They accumulated an impressive 29 goals in th
