Ice Tigers close out the season

Team takes third in the league and Leandro Richert is named league MVP

Posted

Playing three hockey games in a single day is lot by any standard, but the Ice Tigers did it this past weekend, March 9-11.

At the league tournament in Santa Fe, the Ice Tigers played five games over the weekend. Friday (March 9) they beat Durango 8-4. Saturday (March 10) they responded to a 2-0 loss to Amarillo in the morning with two wins, the first a 6-3 win in the afternoon against defending league champions, Cibola, after being down 3-1 in the third period and the second a 6-3 win over Telluride, the team whose player received a concussion in Taos earlier in the season at the hands of Ice Tiger Leandro Richert. Coach Richert reports that, "The injured player was back in the lineup. During the warm-ups, Leandro met the player at center ice, they shook hands, and Leandro apologized once again and wished him a good game."

Sunday morning (March 11), they lost 5-3 to Los Alamos.

Senior Leandro Richert ended his last season with the Ice Tigers with distinction. He was voted the league's most valuable player this season by the varsity hockey coaches and awarded a trophy at the tournament.
