Coach Pfeiffer’s 2000s won the Bantam Gold division at the Labor Day Shootout tournament in Farmers Branch!  The team went undefeated in 5 games, scoring 32 goals and only allowing 8.

The first game against the Houston Wild started off with the Penguins going down 0-2 until the end of the second  period.  Ethan McDonald scored on a break away with 7 seconds left in the period.  Hunter Lane scored 8 seconds into the 3rd period to tie the game at 2-2.  Adam Doucette broke the tie with a power play goal taking the lead 3-2.  The Pens held on winning 3-2.  Ethan Williams was in goal.

The nerves were clearly shaken off in game 2 versus the Texas Jr. Brahmas.   The Penguins came away with an 8-0 win.  Evan Williams earned the shutout.  Goals were scored by Ethan Harrison (2); Ryan Casey (2); Dylan Melton; Griffin Sugasawara; Ethan McDonald and Preston Ford.  This game was a great team effort!

The Penguins faced the Hockey Club Dallas 2000s in game 3 coming away with a 5-0 win.  Ethan Williams earned the shutout.  Goals were scored by Griffin Sugasawara, Kyle Hogue, Rafael Praysner, Brendan Skinner (short handed) and Dylan Melton (PP).

Game 4 was a shot-fest against the Hockey Club of Dallas 2001 AAA team.  The team took 47 shots and won the game 10-3.  Evan Williams got the win.  Goals were scored by Griffin Sugasawara (2); Ryan Casey (Hat Trick); Dylan Melton; Hunter Lane; Tristen Smith, Rafael Praysner and Preston Ford. 

The Penguins faced the Dallas Stars Elite 2001 AAA team in the Championship game.  The boys quickly went down 0-2 in the first before coming back with 6 straight goals.  The team won 6-3, scoring 2 short handed goals (Dylan Melton and Ethan Harrison) plus goals by Ryan Casey (2) and Rafael Praysner (2).

It was a great way to start the season with goals scored by 12 of our 16 skaters.  Congratulations boys and Go Penguins!
