The squirts beat a team from Bismarck, N.D., 3-1 in their first game, but lost 8-3 to an excellent team from Fargo, N.D., in the championship game. The highlight of the tournament was a 5-4 victory over Fergus Falls with the winning goal coming with only six seconds left in the game.
Afterwards, the celebration continued that Sunday evening as the jubilant squirts swam and hung out by the pool of their motel.
The team's overall record for the season was 11-14-2, with several losses coming against metro area teams. One of the team's best performances of the year was a 6-3 loss to White Bear Lake, which has a premier youth hockey program.
