MBA Storm Squirt Blue took home second place at the Fergus Falls tourney held January 17th and 18th. They opened up the quarter final round VS Osseo/Maple Grove. Trailing 1-0 following the first period the Storm came back with four unanswered goals to take a 4-1 lead after two periods. The third period opened up with another goal from the Storm. OMG showed life coming back with two more goals, but the Storm held them off, and scored late in the third period to seal the game 7-3.
Their semi-final game matched them up VS St. Cloud. After a scoreless first period, St. Cloud came out and scored two unanswered goals to start the second period. The Storm came back to tie it up 2-2. St. Cloud got a goal with 42 seconds left in the second period to take the lead 3-2 to end the period. The Storm came out flying in the third period scoring three unanswered goals, taking a 5-3 lead. They didn't look back as St. Cloud scored one more time, and the Storm answered right back to take the game 6-4.
Sunday's Championship final faced the Storm up against North Metro. The Storm just didn't have enough left in the tank after two come from behind wins on Saturday. The Storm fell behind 4-0 in the first period. They were able to skate with them in the second period with each team getting a goal making the score 5-1. North Metro took control of the game in the third period by adding five more goals, and winning 10-1.
The boys skated hard, showed great teamwork, a no excuse mentality, and never gave up through out the tournament. Being the smallest team (9 skaters) in the tournament they showed great determination not be one upped by the bigger teams.
The kids created a larger fan base as many of the other teams coaches, fans, and players were rooting for them as they made their way through the bracket. At the start of the Tournament many were wondering where Benson is. By the end we had so many compliments on the way our team had played. We are very proud of our team and their accomplishment.
