The Detroit Dragons Squirts and the Woodhaven Squirts split two regular season games in theLittle Caesars Lindsay Orange Division. Woodhaven won the first game at home 1-0 and Detroit won its game 3-2 with a penalty shot. Woodhaven hosted a scrimmage on their ice and again won by a 1-0 score. These two teams are very evenly matched. Woodhaven gladly accepted their invitation to return to Detroit and participate in Hockey in the Hood 8.

"Our teams play well against each other and it makes for a fun game. I spoke to our parents and they are a go for the HITH tournament."
