Hong Kong Mega 5 Tournament
Proud of our boys and their effort!
Our U8 Shanghai Thunderbirds took to the ice in Hong Kong May 2012 attending one of Asia's largest ice hockey tournaments; The MegaIce 5's. With a total of 53 teams in attendance, and 13 alone in the U8 division.
The kids played 5 powerful games with fans and spectators on the edge of their seats. Throats raw from cheering and encouraging their tremendous efforts and teamwork! We are proud to close out the tournament winning a Silver medal after a "nail biting" round against Beijing Little Wolves.
Along with our team joy, we had two Thunderbirds recognized for their efforts on the ice that week. Ben Matts #12 was awarded Best Defensivemen and Owen Lee #8 awarded Best Goaltender of the Tournament. As if this was not enough, the tournament organizer recognized our Yellow team jersey as Best Jersey of the tournament.
