McKinney North Stars 16U A Wins Texas Shootout

Congratulations to the McKinney North Stars 16U A team for winning the Dallas Stars' Texas Shootout over Labor Day weekend.  The team, coached by Joe Blaznek and Michael Bugbee, consists of returning McKinney North Stars players from three different teams, as well as a number of new North Stars players. 

Playing in their first game ever as a group, the team started the tournament with a strong 4 nothing win over the San Antonio Jr. Rampage.  The team followed that up with a 3 nothing win over the Houston Wild. The team continued its winning way with a 3 nothing win over the Texas Jr. Stars.  The team's goalies, Weston Walker and Nahuel Veyan, combined for 136 minutes of shutout hockey.

In the final preliminary round game, the team lost to HC Dallas 2 nothing, but advanced to the Championship Game as the number two seed off the first tournament tiebreaker--fewest goals allowed.

The Championship Game featured a rematch with HC Dallas. HC Dallas started the scoring midway through the first, but Bobby Bernier tied it one minute into the second period. HC Dallas retook the lead three minutes later, but Heath Petersen scored from the point to tie the game with two minutes left in the second period.  Peyton Chapa scored off a pass from Zachary Warhoftig to give McKinney the lead with six minutes left and Cliff Haskin scored with 3:46 left to make it a two goal lead. Weston Walker got the win in net, but it was a strong team effort.

Other McKinney North Stars teams also had good tournament performances, including the 14U AA team, which went 3-1-0 but missed out on the championship game on the first tiebreaker.

McKinney North Stars Family:
 
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we report that Ethan May--a North Star Bantam AA player last year--has passed away surrounded by the love, prayer, and support of his family, teammates, and friends.  
 
Ethan collapsed while running Sunday and despite the efforts of his friends, family and medical personnel was not able to ultimately recover. This is a horrible and tragic time for our North Stars family. 

Thank you to everyone who has surrounded the May family with love. 
 
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family with their expenses during this time.  If you are able to contribute to help the family, please click here
 

Do not judge a biography by it’s length,
Nor by the number of pages in it.
Judge it by the richness of it’s contents

Sometimes those unfinished are among the most poignant

Do not judge a song by it’s duration
Nor by the number of it’s notes
Judge it by the way it touches and lifts the soul

Sometimes those unfinished are among the most beautiful

And when something has enriched your life
And when it’s melody lingers on in your heart
Is it unfinished?
Or is it endless?


Our families and our boys have suffered an unimaginable loss. As we get more information about arrangements, we will share.
