Both TG and IHC2's opponents totaled 8-8 records. IHC had CJR on its schedule, TG had ICHT. Both 0-4 teams. TG Dad is splitting hairs here. Two goals made the difference, where TG lost it's bid was in their 2 goal loss to NS Shamrocks.
TG beat Islander/Riverhawks 10-4 dope!!
They weren't even the class last year.
BSB went 2-0-1 against them late and knocked them out of semis.
Shamrocks beat them in quarters.
Now the WHOLE team is going Elite?
If you look at the MHR, you will see that they played the last place EHF elite 06 NE Junior Falcones elite during the season and lost 8-5. They had some very good individual talent, but didn't pass well enough to beat good teams when it counted. I suppose you're going to say they left their better players home for that game as well. They might obviously improve if they are going to play an elite schedule since that would attract better players. Regardless, traveling 3-4 hours each way to play a youth hockey game is absurd.
