Nationals Bound!! - Girls 19U Win Affiliate & SE District Titles

Girls U19 Reston Raiders secure PVAHA 1st Place and Southeastern District Championship

Last weekend (March 11-12), the Reston Raiders’ Girls U19 team clinched two banners: PVAHA 1st Place and Southeastern District Champions.

The entire weekend was hard fought with two games heading into overtime and one concluding in a shootout win, securing them a spot to play for the championship. Heading into the championship game, the girls were focused and determined to leave it all on the ice. Solid goaltending and confidence in net helped the Raiders’ overcome multiple penalty kills and an intense forecheck by the opponent Nova Ice Dogs. With defense locked down, the girls were able to push forward on offense. The first goal came from a Raiders’ power play;  the next off of a 2-on-1 break. Despite the Raiders’ impressive showing, the Ice Dogs fought their way back to tie the game 2-2. As time was headed under the 5 minute mark, a perfect pass  resulted in a breakaway goal, making the score 3-2. With only a few minutes left on the clock, the Ice Dogs pulled their goalie to put an extra player on the ice, but the Raiders’ held on to their lead and secured the title of Southeastern District Champions.

With the district win, the Girls U19 Raiders will head to Nationals on April 6th in Troy, MI to take on competition from around the country. This is the first time in over ten years a Reston girls program has headed to the national tournament. Congrats girls! We couldn’t be prouder to have the Reston Raiders represent the Southeastern District!

Championship game points are as follows:

Goals: Julia Kochman (1), Maggie Shi (1), Emily Lichtenberg (1)

Assists: Kelsey Dwyer (1), Emma Powers (1)

Goalie: 32 saves (Gaby Henry)

There is also a great article on the team's win on the USA Hockey website.  You can read it at this link:  Raiders Girls 19U Win!!

Best of luck to the team at Nationals!!!

18U Blue Wins CBHL AA Championship

The 18U Blue Team went into the CBHL AA Playoffs this past weekend as the #3 seed in their bracket based off of their regular season record, but that did not slow them down as they won two big games to bring home the Terry Scott Trophy, awarded to the team winning the CBHL Championship at the highest Midget level, and the CBHL Playoff Championship Banner.

18U Blue won a thrilling Semi-Final match-up over the Howard Huskies.  The game was tied 1-1, following regulation and overtime and the Raiders went on to score the win in a shoot-out, and setup a matchup in the Championship Game against Ashburn.

The Championship Game did not disappoint, it was a highly competitive game that went back and forth and found the 18U Blue team clinging to a 3-2 down the stretch.  The boys in black held-on and secured the win.

Congratulations to the 18U Blue Team and Coaches!!  They now move onto the PVAHA State Playoffs against Ashburn this weekend to determine who will represent the affiliate at the upcoming USA Hockey National Championships.
