After going undefeated in their first three games, the local KC PeeWee ‘AA’ rep team was shut out in their last two to finish in fourth place at a hockey tournament in Burnsville, Mn. over the weekend.
They had started the tournament on fire, pummelling Northern Colorado 9-1 in their first game Friday afternoon.
Danny McIntyre and Tyler Barker led the way with two goals and an assist apiece while Jamie Davis and Jeremy Bell each added a goal and two assists.
Andrew George, Scott Bridgeman, and Bryan Chambers also scored for the KCs.
They next blanked host Burnsville 5-0 on Friday night. Barker netted a pair of goals in that one while Andrew Mueller, Mike Niskala, and George added singles.
Then the KCs played St. Paul to a wild 5-5 draw Saturday, tying the game with just six seconds to play when Barker tallied a shorthanded marker (his second of the game).
Niskala, Bridgeman, and Chambers also hit the twine.
But it was a different story on Sunday as the KCs lost 5-0 to both Bloomington-Kennedy and then North St. Paul to finish fourth overall.
The team had been hot heading into the tournament, doubling Lake of the Woods 8-4 in an exhibition game the previous Sunday. Davis and Barker both netted hat tricks in that win while George and Bridgeman tallied singles.
The KCs are back in action this weekend at a tournament in Kenora.
