By Lee Samuels
Las Vegas – Wally Lacroix’ AA Vegas Jr Golden Knights 16u won again – this time 3-1 over the Boulder Hockey Club of Superior, Colorado here at the City National Arena. Boulder HC worked hard and had a much better skillset and skate speed than the Cal Wave in an opening round game in the Vegas Confetti Tournament. Hometown stars Jacob Underhill, Ian Williams and JJ Williamson scored the goals and the Golden Knights 16u got a great game and effort from Heath Mensch and William Jacob who were all over the ice making tricky effective plays here at the City National Arena before a big crowd on late Saturday afternoon.
“We battled through a lot of sticks out there today,” sighed coach Lacroix. “It’s never easy in a tournament like this.”
Colton Miller was very strong in the net for the Vegas Jr Knights who return to action tonight – Saturday – against the AA Utah Golden Eagles 16u at 6:50 pm.
From the Blue Line – Vegas defenseman Ethan Parsons feathered some nice passes up the sideboards – and he battled through traffic to it effectively….JJ Williamson snapped off some very hard shots – once he gets near the net he’s extremely dangerous….
