South Bend, Indiana – Head coach Matt Johnson said his AA Vegas Jr Golden Knights 14u bantams are in a ‘must win’ game here on Saturday.

The Vegas Jr Golden Knights tied the Atlanta Fire Elite 3-3 in regulation, then lost in an OT/Shootout at the USA Hockey Nationals. 

“Back and forth game – opportunities for both teams,” he said. “We had great goaltending from Max Madison who made crucial saves. Micah Williamson hit the post with five seconds to play in regulation and Kevin Hanly hit the crossbar in OT.

“We played well enough to win here today,” Matt said.

“However, we must win here tomorrow.”

Las Vegas will take on Fremont Flyers, a team from Nebraska.
