Shamrock Mission

The Vermont Shamrocks bring together some of the most competitive hockey players from all across New England and New York.  The goal is to provide a high level of hockey while promoting participation at the local level.  The emphasis is on skill development and teamwork by fostering a spirit of cooperation and unity, as well as individual self-growth.   We create a fun environment which focuses on important values such as sportsmanship, friendship, and love of the game.  The lesson at the end of the day is that succeeding is really more about how they play the game – win or lose.

12U SWEEPS OVER THANKSGIVING

The 12U Rocks made a return to Thanksgiving hockey at Jay Peak for the Girls AA Green Mountain Avalanche series.   In a six team Division, the team went 3-0-0 in round robin play defeating the East Coast Wizards (5-0), NE Wildcats (4-0) and the Lady Islanders (6-0). After Kanata and Russell both lost their final games, the Rocks were set-up for a rematch with the NE Wildcats in the finals.  The Rocks were down 1-0 early, but tied it up and took a 2-1 lead after the opening stanza, and added goals in each of the next two periods to take home the Championship.

14U WINS THANKSGIVING IN JAY

The 14U Rocks joined the 12's in Jay Peak over Thanksgiving and found a way to earn its way to the Championship going all the way to a shootout in the Finals.
With only 9-10 skaters available, the girls showed a resiliency and effort that is a hallmark of past Rocks teams.  It was all uphill after a tough 2-1 opening day loss to the Whitecaps.  Saturday started better with a solid 5-1 win over the Andover Warriors setting up a must-win game with the NE Wildcats with the winner qualifying for the Championship game.   It was 0-0 until the Rocks scored with 6:00 left on the clock, and the team held on for a last second win.  Sunday the Rocks finished their Round Robin play with a clean 4-0 against our friends from St. Albans, setting up a finals rematch with the 4-0-0 Whitecaps.  
The Rocks fell behind 2-0 early in the first, but closed within one late in the period. An untimely goal late in the second put the Rocks down 3-1, but the team rallied and had the game knotted at 3-3 with 5:48 to play.  Both team's defenses held strong and the game moved into a Shootout where the Rocks scored on its opening three shots to win the Championship.

19U 'Rocks Win Saratoga Tournament

The 19U team overcame a short bench and won the Saratoga "Shut Out MS" Tournament.  The team defeated the Princeton Tiger Lillies, Albany Ice Cats, Plattsburgh HC, and host Saratoga Ligntning on their way to the tournament championship.  The players were proud to help raise over $8,000 to support MS related charities. 

This event closes out the first half of the split season on a great note. Good luck to all split season players in their HS seasons.
