Cheektowaga Warriors 16U Tier II National Champs



By Eric Bell
The Cheektowaga Warriors 16U Tier II Tournament Bound team went undefeated through 6 games, fighting from behind in all 3 playoff games, including the shootout in the championship game, to bring home a national championship to Cheektowaga. Down 4-2 early in the third, the Warriors went on the power play with 12:43 left scoring 28 seconds into the PP to close the gap to 4-3. 3-1/2 minutes later, with 9:20 left in the game, they went to the PP again scoring 1:17 into that PP to tied the game. The balance of the third and a full overtime could not bring an end to the game which ended up going to a shootout. Cheektowaga’s goalie stood tall as 4 Falcon shooters tried to solve him with no luck. Cheektowaga only needed 3 shooters as 2 of the 3 converted. The third shooter would end up being the dagger Cheektowaga needed to bring home a national championship!

Congratulations to Tony Pierino, his staff and the boys for bringing home the national championship!!!

Way to go boys!!!
