10U 2007 Blue Rocks-Out in Cleveland

Tenacious back-checking, steady defensive play and timely saves, all lead to the Reston Raiders 10U 2007 Blue team holding all 5 of their opponents scoreless this past weekend at the Rock ‘N Roll Cup in Cleveland, Ohio.

The weekend started with a win Friday against the Westmoreland Eagles from PA, the team got off to a fast start after their 6 hour bus ride scoring in the first 9 seconds of the game. Up early Saturday morning, Reston faced the Buffalo Bisons and once again started strong with a goal in the first 10 seconds.

Mid-day Saturday was left open for parents and players to explore the area. Most took advantage and ventured to the Great Lakes Science Center and/or the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame on Lake Erie, while others visited “A Christmas Story House” and lifted the leg lamp like the trophy they hoped to win on Sunday.  The final game Saturday saw Reston continue its hot streak with a win over the Oakland Jr. Grizzles from Troy, Michigan, a northern suburb of Detroit.

Sunday morning the Raiders faced off against a local team, the Winterhurst Warriors in the semi-finals. Despite ‘home field’ advantage, the boys were victorious earning a spot in the Championship.  The Championship game matched Reston against the Essex Ravens from Ontario who traveled across the border, around Lake Erie for the weekend. A very spirited game generated lots of excitement on the ice, as well as in the stands. The Raiders were Champions after a hard fought 4-0 Win!

The adventures did not end there! A 6+ hour drive home was unfortunately delayed several hours (4 to be exact for extra team bonding) as the charter bus decided to let loose; a hose that is. Once a new bus arrived and sustenance received at a local Chipotle, they were back on the road and arrived in the wee hours of the morning (2AM) which was most unfortunate for the parents that had to work Monday, but OK with the kids that were off anyway!

Congratulations to the RRHC 10U 2007 Blue Hockey Team!

Raiders Team Photos - Week of October 23rd

The Raiders will hold their annual photo week from 23-27 October. All photos will take place on the Olympic rink throughout the week. Teams that practice on the Olympic rink will be using half ice while photos are being taken. Make sure you bring your game jerseys to the photo session. Travel teams need to decide whether to wear their White or Black jerseys.
 
If you cannot make the team photo the team managers or coaches should let the photographer know and they will arrange the team picture so they can be added in at a later time. If sibling players or coaches want to take pictures together with a player they can do so during one of the team photo sessions.
 
The photographer will have computers set up for on site ordering Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. The RRHC photo home page is located at http://www.roe-photo.com/rrhc/ .
 
The IP photo session will take place on Sunday, November 5, from 1:40-4:00 pm. This can also be used as a make up photo date.
 
If individuals missed their photo session or know they will miss their session then make ups will take place at the following times:
 
Thursday    6:30-6:45
Thursday    7:30
Friday         7:00
 
 
Please be on time for the make up sessions. Once there is no longer anyone in line they will begin tearing down photography equipment.
 
There are no 16U/18U house photo sessions because all sessions are based off of practice times and they don't have practice slots. Individuals or even teams may attend the make up sessions to get their close ups.

Raiders Family Picnic 2017

Wow!  What an awesome picnic! Great way to kick off the new hockey season!  I would like to give special thanks to some of the people who made it the success it was!  Thank you to Janet and Dave Fishman for supervising the entire thing (Janet, I won’t ask you to cut the cake again).  Kudos to the 16U Blue team as they turned out in full force to work the picnic.  Coach Crespy and Manager Julie Stallings must be great leaders to inspire such volunteerism!  And wasn’t it so cool to have Elliot in the Morning Emcee our event?! His whole family was there supporting the club at the picnic (and in the raffle – which  I am not supposed to mention)!  Speaking of the raffle, Coach Linda and our pro shop guru, Jim Sykes, need a thank you for the private lesson and the stick!  They are our honorary Raiders, for sure.  And Darren’s team with Goalie Academy, Progressive Hockey Development & UnReal Ice never disappoint!  As if that wasn’t enough on the hockey fun, we had a great showing from Shaylun Young with Elite Hockey Science Reston.  None of this would have been possible without the amazing staff of Skatequest and their loaners.  Of course, our vendors were the best yet again.  Thank you to Glove Stix (they don’t stink!), Impact Mouthguards (a lot to smile about), Dixie Bones, and Hop on Pops. 

Thanks also, to our Board Member and House Program Director, Jodi McDermott, for organizing a great event once again!!

10U 2007 Blue Wins in Hershey

This past weekend the Raiders 10U 2007 Blue team kicked off the season at the Hershey Labor Day tournament. The team came out strong on Friday evening with a 9-2 win over the Tri City Eagles. On Saturday, the team started the day early facing the Allegheny Badgers with a 5-2 win. Later in the day the team faced the Hershey Jr. Bears at the historic Hershey Park Arena and finished with a strong 7-1 victory.  
 
On Sunday, the Raiders wrapped up their preliminary round play with a 4-1 win against the Delco Phantoms, earning a spot in the championship game where the Raiders would once again face the Hershey Jr. Bears.  The game was fast paced and the Raiders finished the first period up 1-0.  The Bears tied the game in the second and the Raiders responded with their second goal just fourteen seconds later.  The third period was filled with tough defensive battles and key saves resulting in a 2-1 victory. While the championship victory was sweet, the team's Hershey weekend was also filled with plenty of pool time and team bonding, birthday celebrations with the 2008 Raiders team, and of course, chocolate.

14U 2004 Blue Wins Big Bear Tournament Title

The 2004 Blue team went undefeated in the Early Bear tournament at Gardens Ice House in Laurel, MD this weekend, winning the Bantam (14U) A division.


The Raiders defeated the Tri-City Eagles, Bowie Bruins, and Easton Icehawks in the round robin games, and met the Howard Huskies, who were also undefeated in the preliminary games, in the final game. After a hard fought, back-and-forth match, the Raiders took the lead with just over two minutes to go. A penalty was called and the Raiders defended 6-on-4 for the final two minutes, as the Huskies pulled their goalie in favor of the extra attacker. The Raiders held strong and won the game 5-4.

The 2004 Blue team consists of George Bilidas, Jacob Davidovits, Jack Deutsch, Aidan Dwyer, Jake Engel, Evan Gould, Mike Kuligowski, Danny McGaughey, Colin McKinley, Ishaan Sethi, Josh Shewbridge, Ryan Shiner, Bryce Sidhu, Ethan Slamowitz, Lexi Sung, Jack Teuschl, and goalies Harlan Jackson and Leo Quattrone. The team is coached by Randy Sidhu, Robbie Davidovits, Mike Deutsch, Brad Engel, and Kris McKinley.
