2000 Pittsburgh Mega Men End Season on a High Note..

The 2000 Pittsburgh Mega Men ended their season on a high note at the Ronald McDonald tournament. The boys compiled a 2-1-1 record against some quality competition, but fell just short of advancing to the championship round. For the year, the boys compiled a 8-8-1 record against quality competition, with many making significant improvement as the season progressed. Still plenty of work to be done to play with the big boys, but that gives the boys something to strive for...

I'd personally like to thank everyone for their commitment to the team and for the tremendous instruction Coach Yuri and his staff provided. The boys were presented with a lot of new information\training throughout the season and you could really see some things starting to click towards the end. Great job coaches!

This experience, for me, has been both fun and rewarding. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the new folks this year and hope we've made lasting relationships. The growth the boys experience, playing against top competition, is what makes everything worth it. I truly hope you all enjoyed your time this Spring. I'm going to talk with the coaches and see what their thoughts are for the future. I truly would like to continue moving forward with the development for the boys. Thanks again to a great group of kids and parents for a fun filled season!

2000 Mega Men Win Three Rivers Cup Championship!

Congratulaions to the boys for a weekend of impressive, team oriented hockey! Each and every player contributed to the Championship! The Mega Men were facing predominantly 99 teams.

The boys began the tournament by knocking off the Hamburg Hawks 4-0, with a dominant effort. In the second game, the boys jumped out to an early lead 1-0, but were unable to put anymore pucks past the fantastice goalie from the Cazenovia Chiefs, despite outplaying and out shooting the Chiefs, the Mega Men lost 3-1.

On Sunday morning, the boys had to beat the Dearborn Belle Tire team to advance to the championship and set up a rematch with Casenovia. The boys were again relentless and jumped out to a 3-0 lead, on their way to a 5-2 win. On to the finals...

In the Championship game, from the drop of the puck, the Mega Men brought the relentless pressure that was evident all weekend, jumping all over Casenovia. Unlike the first matchup, the boys were able to get some pucks past the Casenovia goalie early and never looked back, claiming a decisive 5-0 win! Nice work fellas! Practice begins in less than three weeks. Let's look to build off the momentum created this weekend.

On another note, this weekend is the Town Tavern fundraiser. Please come out and support these young athletes. For more information on the fundraiser, please see the link to the right.
