This past week another Adult Rec title has came home to the Flathead. Jim Barone has been organizing teams to play the annual Bozeman Winter Classic for three years. This year they finally hit pay-dirt. This year there was a new twist at the Winter Classic, all players were required to use wooden sticks.
Not a traditional Storm team, this one was assembled with players from all over the country. An unending array of friends and family members of Storm regulars, brought in all the connections. The result was surprisingly a team that gelled quickley, and played well together all weekend.
In the team photo starting on the top left (back row) Brian Stinson (Billings, MT) Marty Niemi (Yacolt, WA) Shane Strozi (Butte, MT) Jake Erickson (Palmer, AK) Brant Bristol (Butte, MT) Mark Erickson (Palmer, AK) Ned Oja (Warford City, ND, formerly Kalispell), Nate Erickson (Yacolt, WA) Kenny (the coach) . Front row starting left Neil Schliebe (Kalispell), Trevon Erickson (Kalispell), Cleve Hiekila (Upper Peninsula, Michigan), Jim Barone (Kalispell), Casey Strozi (Butte, MT) Bobby Purvis (Whitefish, MT) and Derek Oja (Warford City, ND, formerly Kalispell).
Game 1 started out with a solid performance against Salmon, Idaho, winning 6-1 on Friday. Salmon went 1-2-0 on the weekend earning the Storm 6 pts in the strength of schedule rankings. Game 2 was another solid performance against Red Lodge 3-0. Red Lodge, who had and extremely tough schedule and were much better than their record, went 0-3-0 earning the Storm 4 pts. Game 3 was the showdown against the powerfull Rams team, who won the tournament 2 years ago, and finished 2nd last year—The Storm held on for a 2-1 win. The Rams went 2-1-0 earning the Storm 10 pts in the standings, for a total of 20 pts and the # 1 seed for the finals.
The Budmen went 3-0-0 beating Red Lodge, the Flying Zambonies(Bozeman) and the Boilermakers earning 19 pts and the spectators went 3-0-0- earning 18 pts, which dropped them to the 3rd place game. So the finals were the Storm against the Budmen. The game was scoreless after the first period, in the second the Storm got 2 goals from Mark Erickson to make it 2-0 after 2. In the 3rd the Storm got a late goal from Brant Bristol and the win was sealed, 3-0. For the first time in five years, the trophy had been stolen from bozeman!
