This year the players on the Lady Islanders 12U and 14U teams joined together to donate   over $1000 to help purchase gifts for three needy children through the Making-A-Difference foundation.  With the money raised, each child was given a coat, hat, gloves, socks, underwear, 2 outfits and 2 pairs of pajamas.  The children also wrote out wishlists with items ranging from books to a soccer ball to an Etch-A-Sketch.  Thanks to the generosity of the players and their families we were able to purchase every item on each child's wishlist and provide a set of sneakers!  

Thanks to Laura Stake for organizing the event and to all the players and families who supported this family during the holiday season.

In the lobby of the Dix Hills Rink we have a USMC “Toys for Tots” drive going on      sponsored by Northport / Huntington Ice Hockey Club.  They will be having a pickup on December 11th.  After that for any remaining toys we will have a NY Rangers “Toys for Tots” box in the lobby.  As all of you know, The “Toys for Tots” drive is a great cause.  I am asking all organizations who use the ice rink to support this cause this holiday season.   Anyone who wants to participate, the USMC is asking for any new and unwrapped toy to be donated.

The Lady Islanders travelled to Buffalo to face strong Tier 1 teams.  The first game the  team won against the Washington Wild was a good effort from all the players.  Playing against the tough Glenview Stars showed the team the strength of their division.  The 2-1 win over the Stars in a fast physical game was a good warm-up for the Syracuse Nationals on Saturdaymorning.

The team and families enjoyed a delicious dinner together Friday night - much needed before the games ahead.  The Nationals beat the Lady Islanders 1-0 leaving the team in 2nd going into the round robin playoffs.  Having Saturday afternoon off allowed the players to relax and support the Lady Islanders 14U at their game.

On Sunday morning the Lady Islanders played a nail biter against the Buffalo Bisons.  Down 0-2 early in the game, the team clawed their way back to a 3-3 tie.  After the overtime 3 on 3 which also ended in a tie, the team responded with a shootout win.  A short break allowed the team to fuel up and focus for the finals against the Syracuse Nationals.  Coming out with a quick tempo and strong physical play pushed the Lady Islanders to a 1-0 win.  Congratulations to the team on a great win in Buffalo.
