So get this straight folks. Both the squirt and peewee winners from this past weekends Granite County Cup (AKA JUST COME AND PLAY CUP) needed illegal players to win? Peewees bring in a goalie for last couple games and the squirts had a team with all illegal players because the tourney couldn't get teams to play haha. It's no wonder why this tournament has gone down hill over the years. Nobody trust the rules because the rules don't apply. Great premise but poorly run at every level. But the bar was open so if your going next weekend to the bantams or mites you'll at least be able to self medicate.
Why is this so important to you? It's a low level tournament, who cares who is playing. Are you upset you won't be able to put that patch onto your kid's hockey jacket? Or yours?
If you don’t cheat in the county cup you won’t win the county cup.
All the players and even the goalie for the peewee team that one play in the county they played for. Also they only brought in the new goalie because the other got legitimately hurt.
If you're going to complain it would help to ACTUALLY know the rules of the tournament. The roster must include players who live in or play for a team in the county. In the case of the PW winner the goalie got a concussion and had to leave the game. The kid went to the hospital as a precaution and is out for the foreseeable future. If you could see past your watery eyes the team played with 6 skaters for almost 5 minutes scoring 4 goals with their own net empty. The coach took the goalies pads and put them on a forward to finish the game even putting the kid out mid shift (personally I love the goalie change on the fly). The goalie who filled in on Sunday plays for the same organization...in the same county. The rules weren't broken your team just sucked and got their ass kicked by a team who was beating teams without their goalie in the net.
The squirt team that won was all bs players who don’t live or play for the counties they represented. The 2nd place team had 2010 players. Like a previous reply stated it’s the tournaments fault for not doing their part of making them play by the rules. The tournament has turned into a joke and the Spartans organization should be ashamed.
