Congratulations to the 15u Buffalo Jr. Sabres on winning the 2018 Midwinter Classic this past weekend in Detroit!
The Jr. Sabres went 6-0 and were impressive all around with the team scoring 30 goals on the weekend while only allowing 6 against.
When reached for comment Head Coach Jake Brozyna went on to describe the team’s success: “Great weekend all around. It’s always tough to go on the road and win 6 games in a row. The team showed a lot of character all weekend , especially against Belle Tire in the Semi-finals coming back to win after being down 3-1 early. Overall it was a great “TEAM” weekend. The boys really bonded on and off the ice. To win a big tournament like this you need to get production from every single player in all areas of the game. The comradery on and off the ice and the attention to detail was the perfect recipe to be successful this weekend. This will only bring us closer together as a group and will make us a more dangerous team down the stretch. We look forward to getting EB (Ethan Bishara) healthy to strengthen our forward group even more”
If the 15u Jr. Sabres were going to find another gear this season they couldn’t pick a better time. The team has four big league games over the next two weekends followed by Tier One Elite League Playoffs in Blaine, MN February 16-19. After league playoffs the team will shift their focus to the State Championship and Nationals.
With the perfect weekend, the team now moves to 49-6-5 on the season!
