Happy 4th of July to all of our followers and fans out there! It’s an absolutely beautiful day in Frisco, and we can’t wait for all of the festivities to start both on and off the rink. If you are down here and have time tonight make sure you stop by Dr Pepper Park and watch the AA Frisco RoughRiders play. It’s a gorgeous stadium, with no bad seats, and they are having 4th of July fireworks following the game. Rumor has it Ronnie B may be makiing a celebrity appearance!
I had a chance to watch some Squirt AA/AAA games this morning, and I am more and more impressed with the Tour Scorpions every time I see them play. They continued their dominance with a 7-0 victory this morning. Leading the way were Anthony Dunn (2 goals & 3 assists) and Lucas Sowder (2 goals). They are finishing up their round robin right now against the Colorado Crash Test Dummies, should be a good one!
In playoff action this morning, we had an early upset with The Goats taking down STL Tour Blast 96 in the Bantam AAA Quarter Final. The cinderella story wouldn’t last long though as Mission Black Ice took care of business in the Semi Final and will match up against Green Eggs & Ham in the Bantam AAA Final at 12:00 P.M. Speaking of Black Ice, what a job Jason Muro has done with his group this year! They just dropped the Junior AAA Semi Final to Tour Excitement, but that was the organizations first loss of the week. Currently they are 14-1 heading into 2 championship games in Bantam AAA and Junior AAA.
TORHS is now officially underway because Evil is in the building!!! Make sure you corner him and chat at some point, he may be the official roller hockey almanac!
I’ll be back throughout the afternoon with quick blogs about Championship games, letting you know who takes home the hardware! (You have to see the medals this year, AMAZING!!)
