Here in Buffalo New York it has been raining all day long. Good thing we are indoors at the Pepsi Center where the conditions are dry…and Fast!
We are off and running at the 2012 Buffalo regional with action in 4 divisions. Squirts, Pee Wees, Bantams, and a combined Jr. / Mens division welcomed 25 teams to this week’s NARCh Regional qualifier. Tonight saw 8 games on the schedule with every division but Squirt facing off.
This area of the country always draws talent, whether it be from the local programs of the Wings and Fusion, or the talent from up north out of Mississauga and Brampton. The games have been exciting with 3 out of the first 6 being decided by one goal. In the Jr. / Men division the Bar Down Billionaires find themselves in the driver’s seat with wins in their first two games. With 2 teams going direct to the final the other three teams are playing for that second slot.
It is a one sheet set up here in Buffalo so that means late nights and early mornings. We will be heading out after midnight and back at with a full cup of coffee at 6:30 am. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated on all the excitement throughout the day on Saturday and into Sunday. We already have some great footage for our always exciting videos and action photos are already up on the site. Good night folks, catch you in the AM!
