The NV Storm Mites captured their first tournament banner over the Presidents’ Day Holiday. With a record of 4-1-0 and outscoring their opponents 56-24, the Mite team went into the Championship game facing the team who handed them their only loss, the LA Jr. Kings and who scored an incredible 75 goals. Justin Robbins started the team off with the first goal of the game. The Kings fought back with 2 goals, bringing the score to 1-2 before Ryan Williams tied the game up w...ith another Storm goal. The Kings were not going to give up that easily and put another goal on the board until Chase Nehring and Kaden Mulcahy put the Storm back in the lead and bringing the score 4-3. The Kings then caught a breakaway and scored to tie the game. With 1:30 left in the game, the Kings punched through the Storm defense to pull ahead 5-4. The Storm was not giving up, and Ryan Williams scored with :40 seconds left in regulation to tie the game and send it into overtime. Goalie Logan Perez stopped numerous shot attempts by the Kings, including a penalty shot in OT, and then the Storm offense took over, getting the puck back down the ice. Caden Ross scored the winning wrap around goal to end the sudden death overtime and bring home the banner.
-Las Vegas, NV.
In a tough, gritty state playoff between the Nevada Storm and Las Vegas Jr. Wranglers Bantam AA squads the Storm swept the ‘Best of Three’ series, two games to none, and will represent Nevada at the U.S. Nationals in late March.
The city series between the two clubs began Friday night at the Las Vegas Ice Center with the Storm beating the Jr. Wranglers 5-2 in front of a packed house. Steven Avalone (1), Darion Conway (1), Justin Brooks (1), and Cody Printzen (2) goals proved to be too much for Jr. Wrangler net minder, Luke Fundator, who had some spectacular saves throughout the game. Anthony Bonaldi held strong in net for the Storm, stopping 18 of the 20 shots thrown his way.
Sunday morning (Game two), at the Sobe Ice Arena, saw a determined Jr. Wranglers squad throw everything they had at the Nevada Storm but the Storm proved to be too much for the never quit Jr. Wranglers. Romeo Scallion and Steven Avalone each scored for the Storm in the series finale while goalie, David ‘Lamont’ Turner, had phenomenal saves through out to record his 5th shutout of the year and lead the Nevada Storm to a 2-0 victory.
The Nevada Storm would like to thank Jr. Wranglers’ President Matt Edlin, team manager Laure Norman, Head Coach Ken Quinney, and the entire Las Vegas Jr. Wranglers program for being great hosts and competitors during the city series. Lastly, we wanted to recognize all the hard work and dedication from Nevada Amateur Hockey Association President, Greg Yochum for putting on an outstanding event.
After second place finishes in the Labor Day and Thanksgiving tournaments, the Squirt Travel Team stormed through Salt Lake City this weekend, and captured the Grizz Cup Championship in convincing fashion, with an unblemished 5-0 record. Earning accolades from officials, opposing coaches and parents, the highly disciplined team exhibited poise, sportsmanship and leadership well beyond their years both on and off the ice.
Defeating a solid Hawks squad from Idaho in the semifinal, the Squirt Travel Team met the Jackson Moose, a team which nearly defeated the Storm in the opening round, in the final. From the drop of the puck, the young Squirt Travel Team would not be denied, going up 4-1 in the first period off of goals from Tanner Parker, Chayse Laurie (2), and Jacob Fraker. After defenseman Nick Leleu stole the puck and fired in a goal from the top of the circles late in the second, the Moose came charging back. Scoring a goal late in the second and two more early in the third period, the Moose appeared within reach of the lead. Storm coaches called timeout to settle and refocus the young squad, which did not appear to immediately work, as the Storm took a penalty on the following shift. As they had all tournament, the Storm penalty killers rendered the man-advantage ineffective, though, and when the Storm came back to even strength, Jacob Fraker netted 2 more goals from close range to complete his hat trick and seal the Squirt Travel Team's first tournament championship.
The Squirt Travel Team has played 47 games this season so far, and with 10 players returning as Squirts next year, has become recognized as among the top teams of their age in the Southwest United States. The Grizz Cup Championship is just the start of many great things to come for this young team!!
Congratulations to our Bantam AA team for winning gold in the Las Vegas Ice Center's annual Presidents Day tournament! The championship game saw the Storm battle a gritty Utah golden Eagles squad for the title. A combination of solid defense and fantastic goaltending by Anthony Bonaldi helped lead the Storm to victory. Storm got its first goal from Romeo Scallion on a tipped John Hallett shot to take the lead in the 1st. After a scoreless 2nd Steven Avalone's wrister from Cameron Zucker broke a 1-1 tie that would be the games last score with 12:29 to go. From there Bonaldi shut down the Eagles at every turn saving 24 of 25 including 20 in a row and helped the Storm to kill a 5 minute major at the end of the game. Romeo Scallion lead the Storm in scoring with 7 goals with Steven Avalone adding 5. Anthony Bonaldi 4-0 for the tourney saved 76 of 79 shots (96.2%), recorded his 5th shutout of the season and extended his record to 17-8. This is the Storm Bantam AA's 2nd tournament victory of the season along with being crowned the Nevada Bantam AA State Champions and the Arizona Youth Hockey League Bantam Tier II champions it has been a pretty good month.
The Storm Mites also took home the gold in their tournament in Valencia, CA!
The Nevada Storm Purple Squirt B team, Pee Wee A, and Midget A teams al...l fell just short of capturing banners Monday. The Squirts were defeated by the Long Beach Ice Dogs in a close contest, 3-1. In the Pee Wee A division, the Glenlake Hawks were just too much for a resilient Storm team coached by Matt Johnson. They really fought all the way to final buzzer but would lose 2-0. Lastly, the Midget A team took home second place after an all star like effort from goalie JP Paul.
Thank you once again to all parents, players, and coaches for representing the organization in a classy, respectful, and dedicated manner. We are proud to call all of you members of the Nevada Storm hockey family.
