Hockey: RiverHawks Squirt A team wins regional title

The CT RiverHawks Squirt A youth hockey team defeated the Southern Stars Squirt A team in the New England District Squirt Tier III Sectional Ice Hockey Championship Tournament on Sunday, March 26, at the Veterans Memorial Hockey Rink in Waltham, Mass.

The CT RiverHawks went into the tournament with an overall 27-7-6 CHC league-play record and went undefeated during the Sectional Tournament in Massachusetts.

During the tournament weekend, the CT RiverHawks played the best Squirt Tier III teams in the New England region — including teams from New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont.

Each game proving to be more difficult than the previous games, the CT RiverHawks never gave up and secured a spot in the title game on Sunday — which was their 11th hockey game for the team in 12 days.
