We are proud to announce that our Fresno Jr Monster Bantam Team is the 2022-23 NorCal 14U-B Champions!! Our Bantam team dominated their category the entire playoff schedule! The team had some major come backs and tied twice along with winning one outright. They clinched first place and went right to the Championship game. Now that they have WON the championship they will take on SoCal for the State Championships! Gooooo Monsters!!!
The Fresno Jr Monster 10U Squirts, led by captains Garik Moore, Zakir Pailing and Colton Vanbragt battled fiercely to secure a berth in the California State Championship tournament. After a trying preseason, the 10U squirts fought tooth and nail to muscle into the top four teams in NorCal to make the championship tournament. The three game round robin saw outstanding performances from all involved, but concluding with the Jr Monsters knocking the San Mateo Black Stars out of the tournament, and leaving the three remaining teams with 2-1 records. The Jr Monsters squared off against the Santa Rosa Flyers in the semi finals, where an epic battle of goalies led to sudden death overtime. With the season on the line, Jacob Bernstein slammed a well coordinated snapshot home to secure the victory while Colton Vanbragt was credited with the shutout after facing 26 shots by the Flyers. The Jr Monsters next faced the Oakland Bears in the final match where they put up a valiant fight but were over come in the 3rd period in a fight to the finish. The 10U Jr Monsters will get another chance against the Oakland Bears, as well as the top two teams from SoCal during the state championships in Vacaville, CA, March 24-26- where they will fight for the state championship title!
I have always liked the Las Vegas tournaments because it gives the team a chance to play teams from all over the country and the world. We ended up going undefeated in round robin play and faced the Austin Mallards for the championship. We only had a ten man bench which is hard to be competitive at this level. The players really stepped up and left everything on the ice. We were down by one with less than three minutes left in the game. Leon Madec scored to tie the game. The Mallards called a timeout which allowed me to put together a plan for the remaining time. With 22 seconds left in the third, Lodyn Rueckel with a pass from Kennan Kalina, scored the top shelf winning goal to secure the banner. The entire team played great, with some stellar performances from our goaltenders.
