Congratulations to the Glenview Stars Squirt 1 team for winning the Great Lakes Pre-Season Challenge tournament in Holland, Mich. In a tournament stacked with competition from both Canada and the United States, the Stars were in for a battle but were more than up for the challenge.
During the round-robin portion of the tournament, the Stars outscored their opponents 24-3 and advanced to the playoffs as the top seed. The Stars blanked their opponent in the semifinal game and prepared for a grueling Sunday afternoon championship game.
As expected, the championship game was the closest game of the series, but the Stars worked together as a team and put together a 5-3 victory to win the tournament and cap an amazing weekend of hockey.
What a great way to start off the season!
