Congrats to the 12UB Green Girls for earning an exciting 3rd Place Finish at Breezy Point. The Irish opened up with a 3-1 victory over Hibbing, but would fall to a tough Stillwater team 4-0 in game #2. Two more victories over Brainerd 3-0 and Northfield 5-1 would earn a rematch with Hibbing for the 3rd Place Trophy. Three periods were not enough to end this game as the girls would enter OT all knotted up at 1 goal apiece. An edge of your seat NHL style 3 on 3 OT session would decide this one and Avery Elsen would end up the Irish Hero with her winning goal. Congrats to the Players, Coaches and Parents on a Great Weekend and for bringing home the first Irish hardware of the tournament season.

Squirt B2 White took home its first hardware of the season after emerging victorious in a nail-biting consolation championship game at the North Metro Pirate Classic. Following a scoreless first period, Rosemount took a 1-0 lead over Blaine in the second before popping in an insurance goal to make it 2-0. As Blaine answered with its first, the Fighting Irish didn’t let down — instead pressing on to put another past the tender for the 3-1 lead. But the Bears roared back in the third period with its second goal, then pulled its goalie to opt for the six-man advantage. And the strategy worked, with Blaine tying the game at :35 left in regulation. The Irish, bolstered by encouragement from its coaches on the bench before a tense four-on-four sudden death overtime, clinched the win with a decisive top-shelf shot from #95, Robby Lurtsema!
2019 Rosemount Irish Ice Classic Tournament 10UB1 3rd Place Victory The Rosemount 10UB1 Girls pick-up their 1st trophy of the season with a 3rd Place finish at the Rosemount Irish Ice Classic Tournament. They were off to a strong start with a 7 - 0 win over Armstrong Cooper. While their 2nd game against Blaine/Spring Lake Park was a loss the girls didn't let that break their spirits as they would come back with a 6 to 3 win against Thunder Bay Fury which was what they needed to secure their 3rd place victory. We are very proud how quickly our girls came together and how they have learned to work as a team. We are looking forward to the rest of the season! Go Irish!

Congrats to the Boys and Coaches on a Great Tournament.
