Published September 7, 2007
Local roller hockey talent rolled over the competition last week in the Breakaway Roller Hockey Tournament at Sportszone 2 in New Port Richey. The Scorpions, in different age brackets, took home two golds and three platinums.
The 10-and-under Scorpion team managed to coast through the tournament with a perfect record, including a win against the Tampa Arsenal in the final game, 8-2. Top goalie recognition went to Shaun Krause, MVP went to Mike DeMiceli, and Stepen Noyes and Reed Nichols won the dishman and top gun awards, respectively.
The other teams to take home platinum were the 12-and-under and 14-and-under Scorpion squads. The 12-and-unders were led by top dishman Dillan Disbro and Angelo Desimone, top goalie Nick Sanders and game MVP Ryan Scorcia. The 14-and-under team was led by top gun Dominick Desimone, top dishman Colin Keeler and game MVP Dustin Disbro.
The 8-year-old team and the 16-and-unders took home gold. The 8-year-olds are the same team that won gold at national competition earlier this season.
