Ice Squirrels Move Up to C Level

The Ice Squirrels are playing so well this summer, 6-0 and +40 goal differential, that they have been moved up to the C Division. The revised schedule has been posted on the webpage. Congratulations to the Ice Team for the promotion. Keep up the hustle!

Official word from the league : “We had to move two teams to different levels, as they were obviously misplaced. The Squirrels will be moving up from D level to C level after they play the Stingrays. Only their games in their new level will count in the standings, although the league website may show them all as counting. To determine their real position in the standings, we will convert their record to a winning percentage and then determine their position relative to the teams in their new division. If you have any questions about this, please let me know, but we have done this before when teams have been misplaced and it has worked out fine. “

Summer Ice Season Begins

The Summer Ice Season is upon us, and we have already recorded our first victory. The webpage has been updated to include the information on the Summer season. More games will be added to the schedule once we receive them from the league.

The Screaming Squirrels would like to welcome two new members, who will skate on the ice with us this summer. Joseph Wu, who once broke his ankle subbing for us in Rockville, and Wade Marks, brother of longtime Squirrels defenseman Don, are now on the roster. With their help, we hope to bring home another ice championship.

Championship: Squirrels 3, Ice Men 1

 

The Screaming Squirrels completed their first undefeated season (10-0) Tuesday night with a hard-fought 3-1 victory over the Ice Men. The Squirrels got off to a slow start, giving up an early goal and trailing most of the first period. A goal with less than a minute remaining in the first turned the momentum, and a second period goal put the Squirrels ahead for good. The Ice Men made one final run on a power play at the end, but the Squirrels killed it off and brought home the 2004 Hockey North America Beginner League trophy.

Ice: Squirrels 8, Ice Devils 5; Roller: Squirrels 4, 5 Holes 1

Squirrels win 2 games at the same time

The Screaming Squirrels set a team milestone Tuesday, April 27, as both the ice and roller team won at the same time. With both rosters significantly shortened, the roller team dominated in a 4-1 victory over last year’s rival, the 5 Holes. Meanwhile, the ice team completed its undefeated regular season (8-0) with an 8-5 win against the Ice Devils. Special praise goes to Don Marks and Chris Long. Immediately after the roller game ended, they sped around the beltway to play the second half of the ice game. Two games, two different venues, two different surfaces, two different skates, two victories.

Next week we have 3 games within 3 nights. The Roller team plays Tuesday and Thursday, while the Ice team begins the Playoffs on Wednesday. Go Squirrels!
