Alaska Jr. Aces Fall 4-1


by John Thompson @John_AKSN

 Despite out-shooting the Mid Farfield Blues 21-17, the Alaska Jr. Aces succumbed to a 4-1 loss in day 1 play at USA Hockey Nationals.  The Aces represent the Pacific District at the 12 team tournament in Pittsburgh, PA, the Tier 1 hockey division for youth 18 and under.

Alaska held the club from Connecticut to a scoreless 1st period, but goalie Owen Carlson would allow all 4 goals in the 2nd.  The lone Jr. Aces tally would come midway through period 3, courtesy of Andrew Cummings.
