Jr. Flyers Bantam Minor goalie Ryno Harris stopped 32 of 34 shots yesterday when his Hershey Jr. Bears team lost 2 – 1 to Northern Quebec in The Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament. Although Harris plays on the Bantam Minor team, he qualifies for this tournament since he is an '06 birth year.
The Bears took a quick lead just two minutes into the opening period. Northern Quebec would tally two goals in the middle stanza.
The Philadelphia Jr. Flyers are please to announce that eleven players who are a 2006 birth year will be participating in the upcoming Quebec International Pee Wee Tournament beginning later this week. In all, the eleven players will represent three different Pennsylvania contingents.
Ten of the players are members of the Pee Wee Major team. They are: Aidan Devaney (Hershey), Cam Greenawalt (Hershey), Brady Founds (Lehigh Valley), Colin Pape (Lehigh Valley), Remy Kagan (Lehigh Valley), Kenny Barber (Lehigh Valley), Ajay White (Philadelphia) Cael Primanti (Philadelphia), Luke Didomenico (Philadelphia) and Thomas Weekes.
Ryno Harris (Hershey), who also is an ’06, plays up and is a member of the Bantam minor team.
Congratulations boys. Have fun, make memories and enjoy the ride. The Jr. Flyers wish you the best and we are very proud of you.
