Anaheim – “We battled right to the very end – coach Todd and myself very proud of our young men – we competed at a high level of hockey,” said head Wally LaCroix of the AA Vegas Jr Golden Knights 16u who lost in a playoff eliminator game 5-2 to #2 seed Capistrano Coyotes in the Anaheim Ducks High School League playoffs at Anaheim Ice here Friday night.
Capistrano’s last score was an empty-net goal.
“This was a 3-2 game with six minutes left,” Lacroix added. “We had our chances and did not capitalize. We will learn from this and move forward to prepare for the Nationals.”
