Sonora kids win Championships with Flyin Hawaiians High School Ice Hockey
Apr 6, 2011, 2:49 pm

The switch from Inline Hockey to Ice Hockey proved to be a successful venture for 5 of our local High School kids.  The idea was to give the kids a chance to try ice hockey in a competitive high school ice hockey league and see if they could adapt to the difference.  This included Luke Steichen, Austin Norstrom, Andrew Klatt, Evan Rusch and Sienna Weeks with all having lots of inline hockey experience but never played any organized ice hockey.

 

The first practices were interesting with the kids on rental skates and trying to determine how to stop on ice.  It looked like it would be a long process to turn these kids into ice hockey players.  After about a month of practices it started looking a lot better with the kids finding the balance points on ice skates and yes actually stopping.  The season started with some preseason games with the team doing a great job and winning each game that they played.  The preseason determined the seeding for the season the the Valley Oak Flyin Hawaiian's Hockey Team was placed in the upper bracket with the strongest teams.  The season started a little slow with a loss to the Bay Area Bandits.  So we now realized that this was not going to be as easy as we thought.  We then managed to run six straight victorys and proved to be a strong contender for the championships.  Then came an unexpected game against the South County Smurfs where we had to come from behind and score two late goals to bring the game to a tie.  This seemed to wake up the team and they went on to win the final 4 games including a strong 6-2 victory against the Bay Area Bandits the only team to beat us.  The team managed to get the number 1 seed for playoffs and got the bye game.  They were then set to play the Bellarmine Bells in their first playoff game.  This proved to be a big mismatch with the Hawaiians winning the game 11 to 1.  So here they are the coverted inline hockey players playing for the championships of the High School league.  The match up would be the South County Smurfs who managed to beat the Bay Area Bandits in a strong game agains the Flyin Hawaiians.  The game started with a big push by the Smurfs and the team was soon to realize this was not going to be an easy battle.  It took a penalty by the Hawaiians to really change the game.  Being shorthanded the team managed to not only kill the power play but due to strong effort from Andrew Klatt scored short handed to go up 1 to 0.  These seemed to open things up a bit and the team manage to end the first with a 3 to 0 lead.  The fans were out in force and letting the team know they were proud by yelling "ALOHA" every time the team scored.  In the end the Flyin Hawaiians proved to be too strong and won the game 6 to 1. 

Not only did the team win the championships the top points on the team and in the league were Austin Norstrom and Luke Steichen with 30 points each.  Evan Rusch came on strong towards the end of the season with important goals and assists in the playoffs.  Andrew Klatt provided strong defense and it was agreed that he was probably the fastest player on the team.  Sienna Weeks split the goaltending duties and took on the pressure position of coming into the game at the middle and sometimes very close games.  Sienna made essential saves that could have change the dynamics of the game coming in cold off the bench. 

This was a great experience for the kids and now they are not only ice hockey players but champions.  Go FLYIN' HAWAIIAN'S, Aloha for now. 


Coach's Corner


OUR ARENA SHOULD BE LIKE OUR HOME.......................
Apr 15, 2010, 11:02 am
Coach Mark here on his soap box for just a little bit.

We all need to be more respectful of the place we call High Country Sports Arena. This is a great place that was built by volunteers and is run by volunteers. My kids like to refer to the place as our second home. The problem is that we continue to have our kids treat our home with disrespect.
This can't be my kid!!!
Well yes it is all of our kids. We leave trash all over the place in the rooms. We use the rental equipment and just leave it in the locker room for someone else to pick-up. We look for rental equipment and pull all the rental gear out on the floor and then leave it there. We try to find a jersey and pull all the jerseys out and leave them all over the floor. We bring our drinks to the benches and just leave the half full bottle on the bench for some else to put it in the recyling bin that is 2 feet away. We bring our food to eat and leave the cup and bag in the stands for some else to throw them away.
Look around the rink and you will see where our kids have broken the cabinets in the rental shop. Have broken the doors (so we put in solid core doors), have continued to show disrespect to our home.
Here is my challenge to everyone that takes the time to read this. Lets do our best to make sure that our kids behave when they are in our home. If they are not behaving then we need to straighten them out and make them behave. Every kid in this arena is one of our kids and we have a responsibility to make sure that they behave and respect our home.
So if you see them out of line. Lets call them on it and lets make our home a better place.
If you ask some of the people that no longer have an arena and they will tell you how much we should all feel lucky that we have such a great place. So lets treat our home with the utmost respect so that it will always be here.  It is the right thing to do.
