  • By Lonny Lovins: As we wrapped up Winternationals in San Jose this year, it gave me a lot of time to reflect over the weekend we had had.  I can’t remember this many final games going to overtime, and I can’t remember the competition being so close in general.It is a testament to the sport, that teams are becoming more competitive, and the games are becoming closer.  It means that the game is evolving in all areas, and teams are taking it more seriously. It seems that the days are gone wh

  • By Jeremy Ellis Here we are, the fourth and final day of the 2015 West Coast Winternationals, and the action has been nonstop from start to finish.  I can honestly say that this event is one of the most tightly contested that I remember.  As I write this we have 7 more championship games to go.  Up to this point we have had 6 championship games go to overtime, an astounding amount.  Spectators here at Silver Creek have been glued to the action on Rink 1 the last two days as we have seen some

  • By Lonny Lovins We have seen a bunch of great games today, both in the playoffs and the finals.  Jeremy Ellis' recap from this morning gave you a little taste of what we have been seeing so far, and I will provide you with highlights of the action as we head into the night. Our first Pro Semifinal featured the Tour Mudcats and the Rink Rat Outcasts.  The Mudcats rolled through round robin play, barely giving up any goals on their way to an easy first seed.  The Rink Rat Outcasts had to work a

  • By Jeremy Ellis Day 3 here in San Jose as the 2015 West Coast Winternationals rolls on.  A total of 11 championship games dot the schedule on rink #1 of the Silver Creek Sportsplex.  The day has had a distinctive combat flair with Armies and Warriors a like collecting Gold Medals.  Our penchant for overtime has continued today with one of our final games going into the extra period. As I write this the Pro Semifinals are underway with the top seeded Tour Mudcats engaged in a back and forth af

  • 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 Jeremy Ellis It is almost noon here at the Silvercreek Sportsplex and I am excited to get my 2015 NARCh season underway.  My flight in from Chicago landed at 10pm last night and I immediately came to the rink to help put a bow on Day one of this season.  To say the rink was abuzz at that late hour would be an understatement!  The fans were out in full force to root on their heroes in Bantam and Men’s division action as the calendar turned to Saturday as we dropped the puck into the wee h

  • 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

  • It’s 4:30 AM and I can’t sleep.  Starting a big NARCh Tournament is like the being a kid on Christmas Morning.  You just can’t wait to get downstairs and see what Santa brought, but in my case now it’s drop the puck and get the tournament underway. The Silver Creek Sportsplex looks better than it ever has.  Blake Peckham and the crew did an amazing job with our signage and the sponsors have stepped it up once again, especially Tour and Alkali Hockey.  Make sure to spend some time in
