4 on 4 Girls Christmas Shoot-Out a Huge Success!

What a day for girls hockey!  70 plus young girls, birthyears 2015-2013 came to Big Boy Arena this past Saturday December 23rd to play in a girls only 4 on 4 hockey Tournament.  The Girls Christmas Shoot-Out was an overwhelming success.  These amazing girls were divided up into 8 teams all representing some of the top women's college programs in the country (Harvard Crimson, Long Island Sharks, Vermont Catamounts, Yale Bulldogs, Princeton Tigers, North Dakota Fighting Sioux, Northeastern Huskies and Boston University Terriers) with custom uniforms to represent each school.  They played 18 ice hockey games with Roller hockey rules, you read that correctly, no icing, no offsides - just get it and go.  They showed their skill, speed, hockey sense and the goalies showed that they would not be over shadowed and were making saves that brought the parents out of their seats.  Every game was close, 6 overtime games and even 4 shootouts!  The ice part was amazing to watch, but what was even better was to see the smiles on their faces and the friendships that they created.  Between games they ran around in packs like they had been best friends for years laughing, hair everywhere, hats on backwards, just being hockey players and little girls.  IT WAS AWESOME!
