Freeze Weekly Update 11/14-11/15


18U UA

On Saturday, the team headed down 95 to spend the day in Richmond to play two games against the Generals. The Freeze scored early and tied in both games, ending 3-3 in Game 1 and 2-2 in Game 2. It was a tough, hard-hitting Saturday that required 100% effort for 120 minutes, and the Freeze didn’t let up.

16U LA

The Freeze 16U team traveled to Hampton Roads this weekend to play a pair of games against the Whalers. The boys were looking for some revenge after losing to them last weekend in the Veterans Cup championship game.

Saturday’s afternoon game was a good match. The Freeze got the first goal, but the Whalers soon answered back. The Freeze scored two more to take the lead. The Whalers pulled their goalie at the end and they scored shortly after to pull within one. The Freeze held on to win 3-2.

Sunday was an early 7:30 am start. This time the Whalers scored first with the Freeze shortly after. Again, the Freeze scored two more and the Whalers pulled their goalie and scored to pull within one. An empty netter by the Freeze sealed the deal and the Freeze came away with a 4-2 win. A good weekend road trip for these boys.


14U UA

The Freeze 14U UA team enjoyed another weekend at home. On Saturday the Freeze hosted the Delco Phantoms in EJEPL action. In a game with two evenly matched teams, the Freeze, despite out-shooting the Phantoms 35-26, fell to Delco 2-0.

On Sunday the Freeze welcomed the Tri-City Eagles for a CBHL tilt. In what proved to be an exciting game, the Eagles out-shot the Freeze 35-34, with lots of quality scoring chances. The Freeze took the lead, 5-2, with less than three minutes remaining, but could not stand prosperity, giving up two goals within 19 seconds, and clinging onto the victory with an ENG with less than a minute to go. Freeze 6, Eagles 4. Zachary Slaybaugh, in only his second game back from injury, contributed the hat trick.

The Freeze are now 1-0-1 in CBHL play.


In a rare one game weekend, the 14U B team's skills created a relentless blizzard that wouldn't allow the Tri-City Eagles Girls team to fly away with a win. Only scoring in the 1st and 2nd period, we were able to overcome and beat the Eagles 3-2.

Pee Wee

12U LA

Saturday the Freeze hosted Navy at Skate Frederick. Navy scored and at the end of the first, leaving the Freeze down 1-0. The Freeze then had an offensive burst in the second period, tallying four goals in the period. The Freeze continued to dominate in the third, scoring three more goals to Navy's one. Finishing this non-league game with a 7-2 victory.

On Sunday, the team traveled down to Reston for their third league game of the season. At the end of first period, the two teams were tied 1-1. The Freeze again woke up and came back to score an additional four goals in the second period. Both teams were unsuccessful in scoring in the third period. The Freeze 12 U is now 3-0 in league play games.


10U LA

On Saturday, the Freeze 10U LA went on the road for a league game against a tough Ashburn Xtreme team. The Xtreme jumped to a three goal lead after the first, and added a fourth goal at the beginning of the second period. Then the Freeze woke up and went hard to the net twice, drawing penalty shots and scoring on both! Ashburn scored their fifth goal, and then the Freeze really controlled the rest of the second, adding two more goals to pull within one before the final period. The Freeze continued to push hard in the third and were able to get the tying goal with less than 5 minutes to go. The Freeze skated away with a 5-5 tie, after coming back from a four goal deficit. It was a great team effort and display of determination - nice job Freeze!

It was back to Skate Frederick on Sunday to play the Montgomery Blue Devils for the first time this season. The Freeze kept the momentum from Saturday’s game with a great team effort bringing strong defense and puck handling from the entire team. In the first period, Montgomery scored the first goal of the game, followed not long after by a Freeze goal. Then, in the second period, the Freeze scored four more goals earning the Freeze a 5-1 win at home. Everyone played hard and contributed to the win with Miles Gleason netting a hat trick. Great playing this weekend Freeze!



The Mite UA team had a full weekend of hockey! On Saturday, the team traveled to The St. James, where they were hoping the third time would be the charm against STJ Blue to skate away with a win. It was a tight game in the first period, with STJ scoring the only goal. STJ started to pull away in the second period and held a 5-2 lead heading into the third period. The Freeze continued to play tough but despite scoring four goals in the final period, they came up short as STJ held on for a 7-6 victory. The Freeze faced STJ White in their second game of the day. It was again STJ that jumped out to an early 1-0 lead, but Frederick answered with three quick goals and maintained the lead for the rest of the game. Abe Camden and Johnny Smeraglia each had a hat trick to help lead the Freeze to a 14-6 win.

On Sunday, the Freeze hosted their first CBHL jamboree of the season at Skate Frederick. Frederick would face Ashburn first and the Freeze came ready to play. Led by Abe Camden’s hat trick and a shutout by Evan Abromson, Frederick posted a 7-0 win. Next up was Reston, and with the drop of the puck, a scoring frenzy ensued. Six different players put pucks in the net, with hat tricks by Nicholas Chung and Johnny Smeraglia, and when the final buzzer sounded it was the Freeze with the 17-1 win. The final game was a scrappy one against a tough Howard Huskies team. It was a battle to the finish, with the teams trading goals until Frederick was able to pull away and take the 7-4 victory.

The team returns to play on Saturday with a game against STJ at The St James Wellness Complex.

8U B

The Frederick Freeze Mite B team, for a change of pace, played multiple evening match-ups this weekend. The Mites traveled to Bowie on Saturday evening and led with hat tricks by Cameron Johnson and Kirby Roebuck. The Freeze dominated the Bruins from start to finish, winning 11-3.

Sunday evening the Freeze hosted a mini-jamboree with Hagerstown, Loudoun and Potomac. The Freeze battled hard for the first two games with five different scorers to win the first against Hagerstown 4-1, and tied the second against Loudoun 1-1. Our Mites tried but could not find the back of the net in the third game against Potomac and lost 3-0.
