The Long Island Rebels completed the New York State Championship round robin today with a win and a loss in the final day of the round robin.  Coach Kevin Young led the boys to a 3-1 record placing them in the second position of their seeding bracket.  The only loss for the 97 team came at the hands of the talented St Lawrence Thunder.  

The morning game was as expected, the Rebels and the Thunder played a high paced, action packed game in what may prove to be a preview of the state finals.  The pace was fast and the play end to end with the first 16 minutes ticking by and no score on the board.  Reports of an "Awesome" game were heard all the way to Long Island as Rebel fans awaited the nail biting outcome.  16 more minutes burned off the clock finding the Thunder up 1-0 at the cut.  Although the Rebels had out shot St. Lawrence, they could not find the back of the net and wound up dropping the opener to the First place Thunder 5-0.  

Returning to rink later on in the day the Long Island boys found themselves faced with a "win and your in" situation entering the night cap pitted against the Camillus Cougars.  Rebel pride came through in a big way as the squad quickly posted a 3-1 lead heading into the second period.  Up 5-1 at the start of the third, drama was soon to unfold.  Perhaps the Cougars felt a sense of urgency, or perhaps frustration was starting to show but the first 6 minutes found the Rebels net minder on the back end of a few vicious hits.  With ten minutes left in the 5-1 game Camillus crashed the net injuring Galiczewski and taking him out of the game.  With the Cougars on a power play, Kevin Young called on Alex Gallose to close it out.  Alex plays on the Rebels Bantam Minor team and was a last minute state approved entry to the 97 team.  Camillus wasted no time in testing the goalie, quickly ripping two vicious shots both of which were turned away.  The flurry sparked the Bantam team as they finished the round robin like they opened it, burying four more goals in the final minutes putting the Cougars down 9-1. 

The Rebels are now only two wins away from the state championship crown.  Sunday morning will find them facing their LIAHL rival the Long Island Edge.  In league play this season the Edge holds a 2-0 advantage.....but this is the state championship!!!!! 

GO REBELS!!!!!

At 6:00 AM on a snowy Friday morning, in Clinton NY,  The Rebels 97 Bantam team opened the New York State Championship and got off to a bang.  As the first few minutes of the game went by, Kevin Young and the boys showed why they finished first seed in the East.  Up 5-0 with only six minutes gone it looked like the Rebels would cruise to an easy opening victory.  Midway through the second, the Rebels were holding a comfortable 5-1 lead.  The squad from Clinton hung tough, fighting back in the third, and with the help of several bad penalties taken by the Rebels, they were able to close to within one as Clinton netted their fourth goal with 23 seconds left in the game.  The Rebels were able to hold on as Clinton elected to keep their net minder in place and not put out an extra skater. As the last seconds ticked off the clock, The Rebels would find themselves posting the first win in the 2012 tournament.

The Bantams were back at it at in the afternoon, this time facing a strong Tonawanda team who took the ice for the first time in the states.  Once again the Rebels jumped out to a quick lead, going up 4-1 in the first.  Kevin Young must have been experiencing flashbacks of the morning game as Tonawanda was able to close the gap as the second period ended 4-3 Rebels.  The third period was filled with back and forth action but once again, at the final buzzer, the 97 Rebels had posted another W in the win column finishing off Tonawanda 6-4.  

The Rebels face St. Lawrence Saturday morning and finish the round robin against Camillus later on in the day.  Go REBELS!!!!

The 97 Bantams as well as the Rebel organization would like to say a very special thank you to Alex Gallose and his family.  Alex has demonstrated the true meaning of team spirit and dedication by joining the 97 squad just days before the states started.  At the last minute, the state bound Rebels were in danger of attending the tournament with only one goalie, Alex stepped up and is on the bench in the event he is needed!  THANKS!!!!!

The Long Island Rebel Mites Finished the season strong as they advanced all the way to the semi finals of the King of The Hill Championship (played at Dix Hills March 3-4).  Despite hanging tough for the entire game, the young squad was eliminated in the morning game by an older Skyliners team.  The goalies of both teams were posting a shutout as the two Mite powerhouses were knotted up 0-0 with only minutes remaining.  As the final seconds ticked away the Skyliners were able to break the tie and when the buzzer sounded the Rebel mites found themselves on the short side of a 1-0 score.

The Rebels are very proud of our boys and Mite Coaches.  They played hard, had fun and were great sports the entire season!!!  A special thanks goes out to Dawn Sikorski who has been providing not only the mites, but other Rebel teams, power skating instructions during their practices.

Made up almost entirely of first year players, the Long Island Rebel Mite team found itself in the thick of it at the Long Island King of the Hill (KOH) Championships at Dix Hills today.  After coming out strong and winning the first two games, the Mites had a tough go in the third game of the KOH round robin. When all the dust settled (and the tears dried up) Coach Mike Porcello and the boys had fought their way into the semi finals on Sunday! The Mites will try to bring home the crown in their home rink tomorrow.  Win or lose the Mite team will still be Champions in the Rebel Organization's eyes!  

Good luck and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!!!

The Long Island Hockey League 2012 playoffs came to a close last weekend and the Rebels Midget 16 team came out on top once again.  The finals placed the 95 Rebels up against the Nassau County Lions.  This Rebel team, under Coach Pete Harrington, has made it to the big dance 6 straight years.  The 2012 Championship marks the fifth time the hardware has come home with them.   Undefeated in League play, the M16's will take it on the road as the Eastern Zone first seed Midget team in the upcoming New York State Championships.  Aside from the team's consistent showing in the LIAHL Playoffs, this year's visit to the states marks the fourth time for coach Pete and the boys.  They have qualified for the NYSAHA Championships at Squirt, Peewee, Bantam and now Midget.  In our organization's entire history there has been no other Rebel squad that can claim the same accomplishment!

In addition to the Midget 16 team, the Rebels sent the Bantam Majors and the Midget 16 A's  to the playoffs last weekend.  Both of those teams fell just short of making the finals with the Bantams falling to the Greater New York Stars and the M16's bowing to PAL.  

All in all The Rebels sent five teams to the playoffs, more teams than any other LIAHL organization!  Congratulations to all our players and good luck to the Bantams and M16s in the states.
