Reston Raiders 12U Black Team - CBHL Playoff Champions!
On Sunday, the Reston Raiders 12U Black Team won the CBHL Playoff Championship game for the 12U Lower A division.
The playoffs began with the #3 ranked Raiders facing the #2 ranked Easton Ice Hawks in the CBHL semi-finals. During the regular season, the two teams faced each other twice in very competitive games which included a lot of offensive fire power. While Easton scored the first goal in the semi-final game early, Reston rebounded quickly and finished the period with a 3-1 lead. The Raiders went on to win 8-3 with offensive contributions from across the team. Stellar goaltending, stingy defense and a commitment to back checking contributed significantly to the win.
On Sunday, the Raiders would face the #4 ranked Potomac Patriots for the Championship. The Patriots were flying high having beaten a #1 ranked, undefeated regular season team to earn their spot in the Championship game. During the regular CBHL season, Reston and Potomac played twice with both games ending in a tie.
Reston was flying from the start of the championship game and jumped to a 3-0 lead after the first period. Potomac pushed back hard for the remainder of the game but Reston maintained control throughout and finished with a 4-2 win!
Congratulations to the Raiders 12U Black Team led by head coach Ron Blum. Assistant coaches include Maxim Alexeev, Paul Norton and Vance Raeside. The awesome team manager is Missy Wocjiak.

10U Black Wins Philadelphia Presidential Powerplay Liberty Cup
The Reston Raiders 10U Black Team took home the Championship Banner in the Philadelphia Presidential Powerplay Liberty Cup this past weekend. The Raiders started the tournament with a 6-4 victory over the Warwick Wildcats, but lost 5-4 to the New Jersey Freeze later in the day. The close loss only served to motivate the Raiders, who bounced back with a commanding 5-1 victory over the Saugerties Mustangs to earn the 3rd place seed in the semi-final round. The Raiders then again faced the New Jersey Freeze, who had earned the 2nd place seed, but the Black Team was eager for the rematch - and backed it up with a 5-0 shutout to advance to the Championship.
The Championship saw the Raiders matched up against the LVCM Wolfpack from NJ. The Raiders staked out an early 2-0 lead, but the Wolfpack battled back, with regulation time ending in a 3-3 tie. The game advanced to Overtime, but that did not settle the issue either, and so each team took to the ice for a Shootout. Ultimately the Raiders, backed up by a terrific performance by goalie Clara Kang, prevailed to earn their hard fought victory!
Coaches: Brian Dutton, Jim Fagan, Casey Golden, Kieron Heflin, Ryan Murphy, Jim Van Horn
Players: Aaron Chen, Maya Dutton, Sean Fagan, Zach Fairbanks, Tristan Golden, Alec Heflin, Campbell Hegerty, Clara Kang, Michael Lowen, Michael Murphy, Ethan O'Brien, James Plourde, Zach Schulz, Akshay Setty, Sienna Sung, and Dylan Van Horn

Spring League is intended as a fun time for where teams play games without standings. It runs from March 10th until June 15th with 4-5 practices and 9-10 games (Mite House players will have a slightly different schedule, see below). Registration for Reston members (currently playing in a Reston Raiders program) is now open and on February 15th it will be open to new Reston Raiders members. All games are non-checking.
The Spring House program is open to birth year 2009, 2010, and 2011 players with prior experience. Prior experience includes:

Parents of Mite age players who have not participated in the Reston Raiders Initiation program and have at least one season of prior hockey experience should contact IP Director Mike Donovan at email@example.com to determine their eligibility.
The schedule will not be completed until registration is finished because the number of players in each age group will determine the number of teams which, in turn, will determine the schedule.
