Freeze Weekly Update 10/31-11/1


18U UA

On Halloween night, 18U played their first CBHL regular season game against the Howard Huskies in Columbia.  After taking the lead, the Freeze played a solid defensive game winning, 2-1.

Sunday took the team to Easton to play in a non-league game against the Ice Hawks. The Freeze had another solid showing, keeping the puck in the offensive zone most of the game with 48+ shots on net ending with a 4-1 win.

16U LA

The 16U team had a Spooktacular weekend against the Loudoun Knights. On Saturday, the Freeze traveled to Ion where they skated to a 4-2 win over the Knights.

On Sunday, the Freeze were hosts and they dominated the game and finished with a 5-1 win. All three lines were on their A game. They will face the Knights again this weekend at The Veterans Cup tournament.


14U UA

The Freeze 14U UA enjoyed Halloween by having the day off. Sunday they played back-to-back games at home against the Mid-State Mustangs from Altoona, PA. The Mustangs were coming for revenge since the Freeze beat them twice on their home turf at the “Galactic Ice House“ a few weeks ago (one of those wins was in OT).

Sunday morning was not easy as the Commodores once sang, and the Freeze lost 5-0. The team regrouped and came back in the afternoon for a rematch. The Freeze held the Mustangs until four minutes left in the second period when the visitors scored. With 6 minutes to go in the game, the Mustangs killed a 5-on-3. The Freeze pulled our goalie with 1:30 left on the clock, but a bounce did not go our way, and the game ended 2-0 in the Mustangs favor.

The Freeze 14U UA boys came to second game even more prepared and focused, and we were proud of their efforts. 

14U LA

The start of official league play began this weekend for the boys. First up, the Freeze welcomed the Bulldogs to Skate Frederick on Saturday. While the Freeze dominated shots on goal throughout the game, the Bulldogs had two breakaway goals that left them with the win, 3-0.

Sunday, the boys headed down to the beautiful MedStar Capitals Iceplex, home to the Capitals Academy. Of course the location inspired many of our Washington Capitals youth hockey fans as they had the privilege of skating where the Capitals practice. Sadly, there were no sightings of any esteemed hockey stars in the audience. The Freeze worked on putting some new skills to great use throughout the game. The boys demonstrated true teamwork and secured the win 3-0.

Special shout out to Landon Bernard for his first shutout of the season. Each game creates new opportunities for growth and development for the team. Keep up the great work Freeze!

14U B

We hopped on our brooms and traveled this weekend to Rockville on a cloudy, cold All Saints' Day. In our third match up with the Montgomery Blue Devils (Blue) we tried to cast a spell for a win. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough eye of newt to complete it. Our next match up with the Blue Devils will be the weekend before Thanksgiving and we plan on stepping up our game and whipping up a win as smooth as Grandma's mashed potatoes!

Pee Wee

12U LA

On Halloween, the Freeze Pee Wee team hosted the Capital City Vipers. The Vipers scored first and the Freeze answered back. The game went back and forth until the second period where the Freeze scored three goals, leading at the end of the second 5-4. Unfortunately, the Vipers came back in the 3rd and scored four goals. The Freeze fell to the Vipers with a final score of 8-5.

On Sunday, the Freeze hosted their first CBHL game against the Hagerstown Bulldogs. The Freeze came out strong and dominated the entire game. By the end of the first, the score was 5-0. The Bulldogs held their own with no goals scored the entire second period. The Freeze again decided to pick up the pace in the 3rd and scored five more goals, leading to the game ending early with 3 minutes and 41 seconds left. 

Goaltender Carl Borge had his second shut out of the season, Mason Macera scored a hat trick and Andrew Sinko and Christian Swanson both had playmakers. All these patch worthy events and watching the boys play so hard made for a great hockey weekend.


10U AA

On Saturday, the 10U AA team traveled to Ion to take on the Loudoun Knights. The game proved to be all Freeze from the puck drop! The Freeze held the Knights scoreless, 4-0, until the third period, where the Knights netted two goals. With great plays made by the defense, offense and the goaltenders, the Freeze was able to take home a 4-2 win over the Knights!

The 10U AA team is going “Purple” during the month of November in honor of Epilepsy Awareness month. We will be showing our support for Claire Elias (sister of Freeze player Chase Elias), who is affected by Epilepsy as part of her Angelman Syndrome. To show our support, our players will be taping their sticks purple, as well as wearing purple laces, for the month of November. Please join us in supporting this cause and to honor friends or family members that are affected by epilepsy.

10U LA

On Sunday, the Squirt LA team opened their CBHL season at home in a good match against Hagerstown. After a scoreless first period, the Bulldogs and the Freeze traded goals in the second period. Hagerstown took a 4-1 lead in the third, but the Freeze kept battling and mounted a 4-3 comeback. In the end, the Freeze fell short as time ran out, but overall it was good season opener! 



The team traveled to Hershey this past weekend for their first tournament of the season. On Friday afternoon, they faced the Tri-City Eagles and came out firing on all cylinders to secure a 17-3 victory. Nicholas Chung, Sebastian Northup, Brendan Waters and Stephen Scherhaufer netted hat tricks in an explosive display of offensive effort.

On Saturday, the Freeze faced the Palmyra Black Knights in the first of two games for the day. Frederick jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and were leading 5-2 headed into the 3rd period. Palmyra scored six unanswered goals and stole the victory away from the Freeze, 8-5. The Freeze rebounded in their 2nd game of the afternoon, again exploding offensively for a 20-3 victory against Team Philadelphia. Eight Freeze players scored, with Nicholas Chung, Sebastian Northup and Johnny Smeraglia recording hat tricks.

The landslide win sent them into the Championship Game on Sunday, where they would face the Palmyra Black Knights in a rematch. Once again, the Freeze jumped out to an early lead in the first period and were holding a slim 4-3 lead headed into the final period. Palmyra tied the game up at 4-4 and it was a fight to the finish, but the Black Knights scored two quick goals to win the game 6-4.

The teamwork, communication, passing and hustle displayed by this team against every opponent they faced was outstanding and the coaches and parents could not be more proud!    

The team is back in action on Sunday when they host the Bowie Bruins at Skate Frederick.
