CCU 18U places 3rd at JO's !!!

The CCU placed 3rd in the Championship bracket at the 2019 JO's !! The team started off snake bit with Giorgio Alessandria being unable to play due to a concussion- losing an unexpected game on the first day to a motivated Pride team. This forced them to take the "back door" route- playing 3 games a day to get back back into medal contention. On Monday they forced a shootout with Del Mar- then won, beat West Valley convincingly, then beat OCWP in another shoot-out, to get to the semis Tuesday AM. Facing Stanford- the eventual champions- they played a brutal defensive game- losing a 4-3 heartbreaker. Playing LAMO for 3rd place the boys pulled it together (playing their 11th game of the Tournament) and Marcus Longton scored the game winner in the last minute. This is a group that has played together since they were 10 or 11 - families that have grown up together- Congrats to a true team
