The 2018 CGHL U19 Division 2 Champs!


Congratulations to the Southern Stars Girls CGHL U19 team, and Coach Kerri Rowland, on winning the CGHL U19 Division 2 Championship tonight (3/18/18).

The Southern girls went 3-1 in round robin play, suffering their only loss at the hands of Pawling U19.  As Sunday morning played out, the Stars needed at outright win over Northern Lights, in order to advance to the Championship game,  And the girls did just that, with a 6-2 win over Northern Lights, it set up a re-match with Pawling for the Championship.

The Southern girls were ready to avenge their round robin loss from the moment the puck dropped.  They potted 4 unanswered goals in the 1st period, including a Short Handed goal and a Penalty Shot.  The 2nd and 3rd period were a gritty, back and forth affair with Southern tacking on two more goals, while Pawling countered with three of their own,  When the final horn sounded, the Southern Stars had had achived what they set out to accomplish - avenged their earlier loss and take home the U19 CGHL Division 2 trophy.  In the Championship game, the Stars were led by Veronica Lynn (2G), Emily Rowland (2G,1A), Leigha Howland (1G), Meghan Froelich (1G), Sam Henchcliff (1A), Maeghan Stacey (1A), and Marisa Fiore (1A).  Rebecca Paine put up 22 saves to seal the deal.

SCYH STARS are the 2017 U16 T2 CHC State Champs!

The 2017-2018 SCYH STARS CHC Tier 2 State Champs


Newington, CT: Congratulations to the 2017 U16 CHC Tier 2 State Champions!  The STARS beat Hamden today (11-5-17) at the Newington Ice Arena by the score of 6-2 in the championship game.

Hamden jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the 1st period and the STARS had to kill off four penalties, before finding the back of the net to tie the game 1-1. The STARS were able to score again before the first break to take a 2-1 lead. After a scoreless 2nd period, the STARS scored in the first 36 seconds of the 3rd period (power play) to make it 3-1. A minute later the STARS added another goal to extend the lead to 4-1. Hamden was not about to give up and they made the score 4-2, after getting a power play goal. The STARS answered right back with the 5th goal, to make it a three-goal lead again midway in the 3rd. The STARS (White) would tap in the final goal of the game to make it a 6-2 final.

The Hamden goalie did a fantastic job fending off the STARS for the first two periods. STARS Captain Will Forrest provided the leadership needed to overcome a tough and well coached Hamden team. Great efforts by Matt Siciliano, Troy Harwell, Evan White, Justin Lasella and goalie Kacy Adams to name a few.

The STARS will travel to New Jersey in April (2018) to compete in the National Championship tournament. This is the sixth consecutive trip to Nationals for coaches Eric Roos and Rick Beckwith. The STARS are coming off the EJEPL split season championship a week ago and took the East Coast Challenge Cup a month ago. The STARS finished the season with an impressive 25-5-1 record and with a # 3 national ranking in the Tier 2 bracket. Way to go STARS!
