Congratulations to the Hopkins PeeWee A Team - Redwood Falls Tournament CHAMPIONS!
Hopkins Squirt B2 had an exciting and successful tournament in Mora. As a tribute to Hockey Day in Minnesota, each team played their initial game of the tournament on an outdoor rink. Hopkins beat Anoka 3-1 on a balmy 34 degrees day in Mora. Ethan Hatzung stopped 12 shots and Dylan Gainsley netted 2 goals, including the game winner. Hopkins dropped their second game to Elk River 2-1 but came back strong for the 3rd place game on Sunday. Hopkins fell behind early, 1-0 to Wayzata Yellow but answered the call with goals in the second period by Myles Koppelman, Edward Winkler, and Grant Lochner. Wayzata pulled within 1 goal but time ran out and Hopkins claimed a 3-2 victory. Ethan Hatzung stopped 17 Wayzata shots and ultimately earned one of the tournaments ‘most outstanding player’ awards. Congratulations to Hopkins Squirt B2. 3rd Place.

The Peewee C's capture the Consolation Championship with a Shoot out win over OMG Black, a tough shoot out loss to Mpls Purple followed by 2 commanding wins over Mpls Orange and OMG Crimson. Congratulations on a strong finish to a great season!
The Squirt C Team tops off their season with a 5th place finish in the post season playoffs for District 3. It was difficult for the boys to lose to Osseo/Maple Grove Black in their first game of the D3 March Meltdown at Delano Ice Arena. After battling through 3 periods and a sudden death overtime and the game still at 0 - 0, and I am sure tensions where high as we headed into the shoot out. It was a valient effort put forth by the Hopkins boys, but at last it was not ment to be.
After a few nights rest, we returned to Delano for our next game against Wayzata White and it would seem that was exactly what the doctor ordered, as we skated to a 3 - 1 victory and Jayden Reifsteck got his 3rd Hat Trick of the season. This put us right back in Delano the following night for a game with Armstrong/Cooper, which ended in a 4 - 1 victory for Hopkins and a line up with Osseo/Maple Grove Crimson on Super Sunday.
The Locker Room was an absolute party as the boys got ready for the game, as the boys where determined to end this season with a statement. That showed as the puck dropped all the way through to the final buzzer of their final game of the season, ending with a 5th place trophy and Simon Goodmanson's 8th shutout of the season.
