The thrill of victory

Want to know what it's like to win a youth hockey tournament?

Just take a look at this picture of Colin, moments after the Tampa Bay Jr. Lightning Squirts A won the Labor Day Challenge in Ellenton earlier today, beating the Space Coast Hurricanes, 3-1, in the finals.

The team went 5-0 during the four-day event, including the two playoff games today. Last week, in Coral Springs, the team finished with a 2-1-1 record.

For the Labor Day tournament, Colin had a goal (incorrectly credited on the official score sheet to one of the team's two goalies) in Sunday's game and finished with a plus-3.

Special thanks, too, to Sam J. Barranco Jr. for taking and sharing this photo


  1. Congratulations Colin!

  2. Thanks. Back to practice tonight. Regular season starts Saturday.
