14U LA

It was a great weekend for hockey! The boys headed to Virginia Saturday for two non-league games. First off, the boys stopped in Reston. The Freeze wasted little time racking up the shots, 45 total by the end of the game. They dominated the game in the offensive zone and our goalie was on point securing the net. Freeze won 5-1.

Moving right along, the boys skated over to Piedmont later that evening where the game tempo started off hot. The physicality and speed were intense throughout the game. Although the Freeze were competitive with their opponent on shots on goal, the Freeze lost 7-2 against the Predators.

Sunday, the boys welcomed Easton to a home game. The Freeze dominated the game with their speed, passing and goal tending. The Freeze racked up 46 shots on net. Special shout out to Logan Musser for scoring his first hat trick of the season and to Trent Wivell for picking up another hat trick. The Freeze won 10-4. Way to go boys!

Pee Wee

12U LA

On Saturday, the Pee Wee team hosted the Louden Knights. The game started strong with the Freeze scoring one minute into the first period, and went on to score two more goals in the first. The Knights came back and took the lead in the second. Andrew Sinko ties it up with his first hat trick of the season. For the second time this year, the Freeze was able to rally back and win against the Knights, this time with a 5-4 win!


10U AA

This Saturday the AA Squirts traveled to take on the top ranked, Ashburn Xtreme. The work in progress continues with a strong showing in a loss. Every week brings noticeable improvement.

On Sunday, the Freeze hosted the Loudon Knights, for our first home game of the season. Before the game, the Freeze and the Knights came together to donate over 300 pairs of gently used shoes to be packaged and sent to Africa to be distributed to families without shoes. The UN says over 1.5 billion people worldwide do not own shoes. In sub-Saharan Africa, lack of shoes is the leading cause of parasitic infection and childhood illness. The Freeze AA families are working towards victories both on and off the ice this season.

Game time brought an electrifying 8-2 win over the Loudon Knights. The Freeze controlled every facet of the game. Scoring was led by Eli Grosh, who also secured his first hat trick of the season.

10U LA

Saturday morning the Freeze traveled to Reston, VA to take on the Reston Raiders. The Freeze had a tough game. Going into the 3rd period, the score was 6-0, but the Freeze scored an impressive goal to get them on the board with final a score of 7-1. 

Sunday the Freeze got off to a slow start against Howard, and faced a 4-1 deficit halfway through the game. The defense clamped down, and the offense woke up and roared back to tie the game up. The Freeze took a brief lead, but the Huskies scored again to tie the game. A combination of players scored the goals to come out of Columbia with a 6-6 tie.


Mite UA

The Mite UA team had a busy weekend of hockey. On Saturday, the Freeze hosted the Reston Raiders and were looking to avenge a loss from their previous meeting.

Seven players found the back of the net, with scoring led by Nicholas Chung, securing a hat trick, and Johnny Smeraglia with a hat trick. The Freeze skated away with a 16-10 victory.

On Sunday, the team traveled to the Prince William Ice Center to face the Patriots. The Freeze jumped out to an early lead, but once again their opponent mounted a comeback. Frederick stayed tough and through excellent play by both the offense and defense, coupled with outstanding goaltending registering 26 saves, the Freeze held on for a hard fought 6-5 win.

Mite B

The Mite B Team traveled to Prince William on Sunday to take on the Potomac Patriots and came away with a great team victory! Scoring was led by Cameron Johnson, securing a hat trick, which led the way on an offensive charge to bury 13 pucks in the net, while defensive efforts helped protect our zone. This was the first week of a rotating goalie position. The goaltenders padded up and blocked some key shots to prevent Potomac from ever taking a lead in the contest.
