Q. Will the North Stars practice at the Dr Pepper StarCenter in McKinney? 

A. Yes.  The McKinney North Stars will operate exclusively out of the Dr Pepper StarCenter in McKinney.

Q. How many teams will McKinney North Stars field?

Congratulations to DSTHL Champions

Congratulations to the McKinney Lightning Squirt and Midget Minor teams for winning their respective DSTHL Divisions this past weekend. 

The Squirt team defeated the Dallas Oilers in two games to win the DSTHL Green Division. In the first game, the team came out hot, winning 7 nothing. Joshua Shelton had four goals, Maddox Mannka had two and Ian Change had one. Jacob Smith got the win in net. In the second game, the team came out hot again, with Evan Raines scoring seven seconds into the game and Carson Spear and Maxwell Brooks adding first period goals. Luke Yeary scored in the third and the team went on to win 4 to 1.  Both goalies played in the game, with Ryan Foto getting the win. The team finished 20-4-2 in on DSTHL games this year.

The Midget Minor team lost its first game 4 nothing, but bounced back to win the next two games against the Allen Americans to secure the Green Division Championship. In the second game, the team was trailing by one going into the third, but scored two goals to win the game 2 to 1. Royce Allred got the win in net. In game three, Eric Eaton scored 22 seconds into the game. The Americans tied it up in the second, but Neil Moisan scored in the third and the team won 2 to 1. Brent McIntyre got the win in net. The team finished 25-3-0 in all DSTHL games this season.

The Bantam Major team finished second in the DSTHL Green Division. It had a hard fought game in game one, with Brenden Sinclair scoring first. DJHA went up 2 to 1, but Tyler Jensen tied it in the second. The teams went through the third period and two overtimes without scoring before DJHA won in a shootout. The team took the lead in game two as well, with Brenden Sinclair scoring first, but DJHA scored three unanswered--the last an empty net goal--to win 3 to 1. 

Midget Major also finished second in the DSTHL Green Division. The team won the first game 2 nothing, with Jordan Brown scoring two third period goals. In game two, the team lost 4 to 2 (last an empty net goal) despite outshooting their opponent 42 to 14.  Penalty trouble caught up with the team in game three, with them losing 4 to 1.  

Congratulations to all the McKinney Lightning teams on a great year.

McKinney Varsity Wins State Championship

State Champions

Congratulations to the McKinney Varsity team for winning the Texas High School State Championship for the blended division.  

The team started the State Tournament out rough, losing to Frisco 5 to 1. That defeat could easily have upended the boys' dreams of winning states. They bounced back in game two, defeating Grapevine/Colleyville 4 to 1. Frisco lost that morning 3 to 2 to Plano West, which helped the team's chances.  

Midway through its final preliminary round game against Plano West, the team learned that Frisco had lost to Grapevine/Colleyville. That loss meant McKinney would advance to the Championship Game with a win or a loss in overtime or a shootout. Plano West did not make it easy, going up 2 nothing on McKinney. Brendon McMahon and Jeff Kavulich scored in the second period to tie it, but Plano West scored a goal with 9:11 left in the third. Just when things looked bleak, Garrett Jackson (with help from Devon Naphan and Kyle Hogue) scored to tie the game with 1:22 left. The boys held on and took the game to overtime and then a shootout. Although they lost in the shootout, it was like a win since it put the team in the Championship Game.

The next day, the team took on Plano West in the Arena at Frisco to the roar of a strong McKinney crowd. The boys fed off of the fans and went up two nothing off of an even strength goal by Brandon Sizemore and a shorthanded goal by Alex Parisi. Plano West scored two powerplay goals to tie the game with 9:31 left in the third. Jim Kavulich scored with 4:48 left in the game to give the team a 3 to 2 lead and the team held on for the win over Plano West, a perennial powerhouse. 

The team advances to its first National Tournament, which will be held March 19-23 in St. Louis, Missouri.
