Florida JR. Panthers league updates - 9/26 and 27, 2015

Squirt A Major

The Squirt Red team played against the 2-0 Breakers Blue team yesterday at the Ice Den. The kids came out really strong and scored 3 in the first period. In the 2nd period, the kids continued their terrific team play, completely dominating possession with great passing and smart decision making. After 2, the score was 7-2. In the 3rd period, the Panthers scored another 2 goals to finish it off 9-2.
Our forwards played out of this world, but our defense was the story. The Breakers are very big and have some good skaters. Our D shut them down.

Pee Wee A

Two Games, Two Shutouts, Two Hat Tricks!

The International Skate Way at Daytona Beach hosted a Jr. Panther Peewee team determined to show the dominance and teamwork that was on display during the ‘Early Bird Tournament’ where in four games we out scored our opponents 34-1.

In the morning game, vs the Orlando Knights Peewee A Gold team, our Jr. Panther’s defense, with Luke Remenyi solid in the net, shut down a tenacious attack recording it’s first shutout of the season, while the offense scoring 9 goals with Jason Dimatteo recording the team’s first hat trick.
Final score 9-0.

The late afternoon game vs. the Sharpshooters was more of the same with our defense featuring iron man play from Jordan Schoen working two lines with Garrett Cerda and Lev Runkevich alternating and goalie Jake Rudolph stopping all shots to record the team’s second shutout. Leading the scoring was Richie Gibbs (one in the first period and one in the third) and Jack Dodes's third goal completing the scoring and the team’s second hat trick.
Final score 8-0.

Our next opponents are Peewee A Palm Beach Blackhawks and Miami Toros on Sunday October 18th played at home in the ‘Den’.

 Florida JR Panthers Peewee Majors Bring It!


The Peewee Major’s took to home ice at the Panthers IceDen on Saturday for their 3rd and 4th league games of the season. Coaches Marco and Paul were on the bench and the team had a tough job to do today, taking on the undefeated Palm Beach Blackhawks, a team they had fallen to over Labor Day weekend by a score of 5-0. The JR Panthers came to play today! After a somewhat tentative start early in the first, the JR Panthers found their groove and were creating opportunity for themselves by the end of the period. This team was a formidable opponent on this day. During the second period tides changed even further and the Jr. Panthers took control of the game, peppering the goalie with an avalanche of shots. He played big and the scoreboard remained blank after the second period. The third period was tense, both teams looking to get on the board, but with just 1:06 left on the clock, Elias found the back of the net. The JR Panthers left with a win, and improved their league record to 2-1!  


Our second game of the day had us squaring off against the Jr. Bulls from Brandon. The Jr. Bulls are a tough team and they play a physical game. They beat the Black Hawks by a score of 4-5 just hours earlier. The boys had their work cut out for themselves for a second time today. Unlike the first game, goals came early this time. The Bulls struck first, scoring about four minutes into the first period. Thanks to a nice pass from Blake, the Panthers answered back when Christian tied the score at 4:10. Before the period would end, Riley would strike gold with 32 seconds left in the first. The Panthers were up 2-1 at the end of the first! The Bulls turned it up a notch, and scored less than four minutes into the second period, tying the game 2-2. However, the Bulls’ physical play led to five penalties in the second, the second of which would cost them as Zander redirected a blue line stunner from Ryan. Panthers widened the margin by one in the third period when Zander backhanded the puck to the net on a pass from Rhett. With the Panthers holding a 4-2 advantage, a Bull in the sin bin, and only a few minutes left on the clock, the Bulls pulled their goalie. It turned out to be a wise decision on their part. They rallied back, scoring two goals, and tying the game 4-4. We’ll take it!


The boys played great this weekend and had lots of fun! Way to go JR Panthers.
Florida Jr. Panther U16 A
We had 2 fabulous games this weekend:
Pines Ice Arena
We lost 1-2
Game was definitely keeping the boys on their toes.  With more practices and team building activities, we will give them a run for their money!
Golden Wolves 
Panthers Ice Den
We won 2-1
Wolves scored within the first two minutes of the game but the rest of the time it looked as if they were on a penalty kill.  We absolutely dominated this game and should of scored more goals but we had too many turnovers and missed opportunities which hopefully we will correct before our next league game.
So far we are 3-1 this season and our coaches are the best!
