Crabtown Showdown 2016

We’re pretty good about sharing our kids’ hockey accomplishments on barfblog. Here’s another.

Our team of ten 7- and 8-year olds traveled to Laurel, MD to play in a tournament against youth hockey teams from Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland.

After losing the first two games by a combined score of 35-6, the kids improved over their next two games winning the finale 14-4.

They also took home a team silver medal in the skills competition (where each team competed in skating and shooting events).
