Rockaway Skaters Bring Home Championship
The four boys pictured above are all Rockaway locals who play ice hockey for the "Apple Core Squirt B" Travel team in Long Beach. The team recently traveled to North Adams, Massa chusetts in the Berkshire Mountains to play a weekend tournament.
They won all five games they played and culminated in an 11-4 romp in the championship game.
(Left to Right): Michael Kirk was outstanding on defense by keeping the front of the net clear and added 4 assists: James Reen was tenacious on the forecheck and pressured opposing teams into many key turnovers: Michael McCarthy scored 7 goals, added 4 assists and won many key faceoffs and Kieran Rogers scored an important goal and played tough, hard-nose hockey throughout.
The boys will compete their season this weekend and should be commended for their hard work and commitment throughout the year. Great job!
