The 16U A1 team had much to celebrate over the holidays. Fresh off of their Wenatchee Invitational tournament victory a week ago, the 'Birds rolled their momentum into another tournament victory in Richmond.

The T-Birds (39-8-5-2) backed by solid goaltending, stingy defense and explosive forwards, marched through the tournament with a perfect 7-0 record en route to the championship.

Jr. Thunderbirds Head Coach, Mike Butters, was very complimentary of his team's performance. "Every player contributed. The group played inspired hockey. It was a good weekend for them."

Aside from the tournament banner, several individuals led the tourney in different capacities. Forward, Trevor Loucks led the tournament in points (14). Danny McCarragher finished first overall in goals (9). Stirling Nash finished first in assists (9). Goaltender, Andy Vlaha led the tourney in wins (4), Goals Against Average (0.33) and Shutouts (2).

Game MVPs for the 'Birds were: Phinny Weston, Andrew Alonzo, Danny McCarragher, Trevor Loucks, Ty Waram, Andy Vlaha and Stirling Nash.
