The Northern California Mustangs minor program has had a bit of an overhaul this offseason. New players Aron Qualas, Kevin Brenton, Lionel Calisto, Joe Kubani, Jimmy Guilfoyle, Sam Poyer, CJ Mendoza, Scott Barrow and Alex Sherin join forces with a solid group of returners in Michael James, Ronny Romano, Cole Morley, Jordan Strohmeyer, Mitch Gallagher, Anthony Capriccio and Chip Shirek. Having missed out on the playoffs last season, the Mustangs will need to perform well in a tough Pacific North Division. The Mustangs minor team showed their ability to compete in a Pacific North preseason jamboree as they played every opponent close.
The Oakland Goodlife minors have completely re-tooled after taking a year off. Expect this team to battle for a playoff spot behind goaltender Jay Brown who was very impressive during the preseason jamboree.
The Northern California Mustangs are last years runner up for the Pacific North division title. They come back this year with a handful of new additions which could help them finally get out of the division playoffs. Jeremy Mamon, Matt Wallace and Martin Stacey will help returners Mason Nave, Travis Hawkins, Ryan Lowe, Shawn Hickey, Derrek Lobban, Luke Hart, Javi Martinez, Jeff Brown, Joe Fritz and Dominic Mamon remain one of the division’s very best squads.
The Oakland Goodlife reunite a very talented squad from two seasons ago in Kevin Silva, Casey Kennedy, Kevin Kennedy, Gavin Klatt, Ben Caliz and Brian Smith. Joining this already strong team is Travis Suyeishi, Jason Weiser, Joe Drake, Joe Atkins and Ryan Linnane . This is their home opener and they are ready to take a stand in the race for division supremacy.
