Fort Worth, TX- The West Texas Bulls had a championship weekend as both the Squirts and Pee Wees captured the MLK Kings Cup. Both teams battled hard through adversity and found a way to win over some very good competition. This is the first tournament win for a Squirt team in Amarillo Hockey history.
The Squirt team finished the Kings Cup with a 4-0-1 record after getting the final say against a tough Fort Worth Brahmas team. Max Farr broke away from the pack and scored a backhand game winning goal with 18.1 seconds left in the game.
“The team did everything I asked”, explained Coach Tyler Fountain. “They’re a good little team, and I am very proud of each of them”.
“This will be the first of many successful seasons with this particular group”, says Program Director, Austin Sutter. “Its nice to see that the kids (and parents) dedication to our program is paying off. They’re a fantastic group of people. I wish them many more great years to come.”
