We are the Champions! Detroit Dragons Mites win LCAHL championship at Joe Louis Arena by 5-1 score.
Solid defense, strong skating, and an explosive transition game lead the Detroit Dragons Mites to a 5-1 victory over the Wayne Knights for the Little Caesars Amateur Hockey League (LCAHL) Championship at Joe Louis Arena last evening.
The Dragons struggled early with Wayne applying constant pressure in the Dragons end. The score remained tied 1-1 through much of the second period. However, the skills clinics and hard skating paid off in the end as the Dragons scored four unanswered goals and kept the puck in the opposing end to secure the win.
Congratulations is also due to the enthusiast Detroit Dragons fans. They overwhelmingly won the traditional LCAHL chicken dance contest between the second and third periods.
Reminder: On Saturday, March 29 @ 10:00 AM, the DHA has a unique opportunity for players, coaches, their families, and supporters to visit the Joe for a Detroit Red Wings open practice!!
