  • By Lonny Lovins As we wind down here in Irvine, I am reflecting on a great tournament.  We saw a lot of great action on Sunday, and it makes me excited for the rest of the tournaments we have down the stretch.   There seems to be a pretty good buzz in the air about finals, and some of the new teams we saw are looking to make a mark in Florida.   Daryn hit on it earlier with his blog, Florida is going to be amazing.  Just being a part of the finals last year gave me a true sense of how a tour

  • By Lonny Lovins The weather has not been as warm as it was last year, but the hockey has been just as good if not better.  We wrapped up the Pro Division, Men's Platinum, and the Mite Divisions last night, and as always I will cover the play by play in my wrap up.  The finals last night provided a lot of drama, and I expect that today will also provide it's fair share of excitement. There have been a lot of "upsets" throughout the tournament, with some teams that got shelled by a team in the f

  • By Lonny Lovins  With refereeing, playing, league directing, and tournament directing I have watched a lot of hockey over the course of my life.  I have seen great moments at almost every level, but today during these games here in Fort Myers, I have seen things that almost never happen in our great game.  A few of these games actually gave me goose bumps, because I remember as a kid, being so excited about winning a tournament.  I remember the crowd noise, the people I played with, and the

  • By Lonny Lovins  The tournament is creeping into the wee hours here in Fort Myers, but the stars were shining long before the sun went down.  Like in that little golf tournament a state over, today was moving day.  We saw a few teams improve their positions, and we saw a few cave under the pressure.  For the most part, we saw a lot of really good games, including a playoff game with a 7 round shootout.    The Cayman Island Squirts, and the Gulf Coast Eagle Squirts played an incredible gam
