  • By Jeremy Ellis Well we had a chance to grab a good meal and get a measure of sleep on Sunday night after a full weekend of action in Moriches.  I know Mike is busy getting after the highlight video so here I go closing things up with the last 4 championship game recaps. After the remaining 4 adult games squared away the seeds for the mens division, we were back to the medal games with the Squirt Platinum Final.  Mission Black Ice 00 had the #1 seed after a high scoring round robin that saw th

  •  By Casey Wedge Wrapped Up in BuffaloWhile shutouts were the theme for Friday and Saturdays games, the Sunday games wrapped up the weekend in a very different fashion. We’re always doing our best to keep games on time and keep everything running smoothly. When games are running a little late you’re not the only one frustrated. However, when we’re slightly behind schedule because of games that come down the dying seconds and games that are too close to settle in regulation, it’s a much

  • By Jeremy Ellis Saturday is in the books and I am finally able to catch my breath after the first wave of championship games today.  All together we have 8 final games taking place this Sunday.  Hope you like the picture attached to this blog.  Longtime Black Ice Coach Aaron Weiss just had a new baby boy, Brody.  Look out for him to be earning medals sometime in the near future! Since Casey touched a bit on the Hawks - Kings game from last night in his Buffalo blog, I will add on just a bit.

  •  By Casey Wedge Saturday’s Theme: ShutoutsWith the Los Angeles Kings on the brink of elimination in this years run for the cup they tied it up, 2-2, with just over 9 seconds to go. Definitely the fastest game of the series and it really sucked some people in. We had a good-sized group who were all done playing for the night and stuck around for a while waiting to see how the game would unfold.The theme throughout the weekend has been shutouts on top of shut outs on top of more shutouts.  Th

The Bandits took an early lead finding the back of the net twice before the game was even four minutes in.

  • By Jeremy Ellis We are closing in on the halfway point of the 2013 Moriches Regional.  The rink has been abuzz all day long with non-stop action here and the anticipation of the IIHF Gold Medal Game in Germany.  Interest was high for the action abroad as local boy made good, Team USA Captain, Greg Thompson goes for gold.  Greg cut his teeth through the ranks of NARCh and was looking to add to his medal collection, which included a NARCh Pro championship from 2011.  Team USA did not disappoin

  •  By Casey Wedge Buffalo – Night One Wrapped Up After a casual red-eye to Newark followed by an hour and a half layover this morning Itan and me finally made it to Buffalo.With this weekends Buffalo Qualifier taking place in a four-floor building (3 sheets of ice and 1 roller rink) there is nonstop traffic in and out of the rink and the softball fields right outside only add to the movement. Each Squirt team played their first two round robin games tonight and there was one Bantam game to to

  • By Jeremy Ellis The 2013 NARCh regional tour slogs on as we drop the puck in a soggy Long Island.  The three day regional brings us to the Rapid Fire Arena in Moriches, New York.  It is always nice to come out to the stomping grounds of roller hockey icons Jason Muro and Anthony "Vio" Violante. It was hairy making it out here today.  The area is being deluged with the remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea. As I flew from Chicago to Baltimore to Long Island, the rain never stopped and has been hea
