This past weekend the Squirt B team played league games on both Saturday and Sunday against Montgomery. Saturday, we hosted MoCo at home in what was the start of a competitive series. The Freeze scored midway through the first period, and MoCo answered with a goal of their own. Frederick scored again to keep the lead in the first period. We came out strong in the second period, scoring during a Power Play that came after a roughing call. MoCo scored late in the second period on a Power Play of their own, bringing the score to 3-2. Ultimately, the Freeze were able to score on another Power Play late in the third, and they brought home a 4-2 win!
Sunday at Cabin John brought a hard fought 4-4 tie from eight evenhanded goals in another aggressive match up. This game was a fight through the very end. Frederick scored the only goal in the first period , but the second period was a back and forth battle, bringing the score to 3-3. MoCo scored late in the third to take the lead, but the Freeze never gave up, and they maintained control of the puck to bring in a final goal and the 4-4 tie.
The Mite LA team traveled to Capital Clubhouse in Southern Maryland for a CBHL Jamboree. Facing NAVY in the first game, the Freeze struck quick, scoring two goals in their first shift on the ice. Powered by excellent passing from the entire team and hat tricks from Nicholas Chung and Jay Vivian, the game ended with an 11-1 win for the Freeze. Up next was Ashburn, and the team was looking to avenge a loss from the prior week’s jamboree. Frederick scored first, but Ashburn answered with two goals to take the lead. Frederick turned up the heat and scored the final goal to end with a 2-2 tie. The most competitive match took place in game three, against rival Bowie. Goals were traded early in the game before Frederick pulled away for the 5-3 win. The day ended with another tough match up against host SOMD. Goals were traded back and forth the entire game and it was a fight to the finish. The Freeze were pressing hard as time was winding down, but as they were putting a flurry of shots on goal, the buzzer sounded, ending the game at a 5-5 tie.
The B2 team had a much needed break this weekend after spending last weekend playing in Hershey at the Giant Center Arena Saturday, and then heading back home the next day for a mini jamboree!
