Saturday, November 24, 2012, 7:14PM

Saturday morning the U16 Jr. Shamrocks played the Connecticut Polar Bears in their second round robin game of the East Coast Wizards Thanksgiving Tournament being held at the Edge Sports Center in Bedford, Mass. The Polar Bears came out strong and scored 2 goals to quickly go up 2-0. The Jr. Shamrocks cut the Polar Bears lead in half when Amanda McGahan made a back door pass to Chrissie Wieizbicki who beat the Polar Bears goalie up high.

Trailing by one goal late in the third period, the Jr. Shamrocks pulled their goalie for an extra skater. The Jr. Shamrocks took advantage of the extra skater as Kathleen McHugh scored to tie the game at 2-2. The lead was short lived as the Polar Bears scored with no time remaining to win the game 3-2.

The U16 Jr. Shamrocks next tournament game is Saturday night against the Pennsylvania Quakers at 6:40 pm at the Edge Sports Center in Bedford, Mass.
