The Candy Cane festivities kicked off with the Boys U9 division on Monday, December 13. The four teams in this age group battled each other all the way to the finals, where Strikers02 and the Badgers faced off in the first final of the Candy Cane Challenge. Strikers02 squeaked by with a 2 – 1 win to earn the T-shirts and bragging rights as the first champions of the 2010 Candy Cane Challenge.
The Boys U10 division kicked-off on the same night, following the finale of the Boys U9 final. Eight teams competed in this tough division as Dos Ice, Megaladon, Santa’s Helpers and Dos Freeze advanced to the semi-finals. The tournament’s first overtime drama occurred in the first semi-final game as Dos Ice froze Megaladon in a shoot out to advance to the championship where they faced Santa’s Helpers. Unfortunately, the magic ran out as Santa’s Helpers had too much in their bag of goodies as they won 5 – 2 to take the championship.
