Our DC Diamond U12s begin their CAN/AM Challenge Cup adventure today at 2:40 PM vs. the Omaha Lady Lancers so if you're looking for some fast paced U12 hockey come on out and cheer our ladies to victory!
They have four games scheduled today and tomorrow and they will all be played at Capitol Ice Arena in Middleton (Google Map link below). Depending on how the games shake out there is the potential for another game on Sunday as well.
If you can't attend a game please take a moment to visit the official CAN/AM results page (link below) and see how our ladies fare against their opponents.
We have all witnessed the development of our U12s over the course of the season and I am confident they will be showing these out of state teams how hockey is played in Wisconsin. I hope their opponents brought their A game with them because they'll need it when they take the ice against the Diamonds.
Good luck and Best Wishes to the DC Diamonds U12s this weekend! We're all pulling for you!
