Bantam 'A' State Champions 2009

I'm celebrating along with my nephew and his family as his team just won the Michigan Amateur Hockey Association State Championship in Trenton, Michigan this weekend.

My nephew, Pearce, joined the Rochester Rattlers this year, after not being "asked back" by the Grosse Pointe Bulldogs. Sweet taste of victory as his new team played great defense keeping the Bulldogs from scoring to tie with 6 players on-ice (pulled their goalie in final seconds). During the 3 day tournament, my nephew popped in a winning goal and played strong defense to help his team to victory!

The MVP for the Rattlers? GO Kenny! He's been criticized for being a small goalie by some coaches - but he has good eyes and hands and gets in front of the puck. He has helped the Rattlers to many victories in Michigan and Canadian tournaments.

We wish all the Rattlers congratulations and of course thank all the teams who participated in the tournament - especially the host team - Trenton.

GREAT Amateur Hockey action in Michigan!
