BARRACUDAS: 8 Tampa Bay Titans: 0
In a busy month of January the Pee Wee Cudas press on and made their way down to Brandon for two league games against the Titans of Tampa Bay and the Jr. Bulls of Brandon. The Cudas were ready to rock and roll as they hit the ice in game one against the Titans. A staunch defensive effort allowed only a few shots on goal the entire game with the impressive blue line crew of Nikita LaChapelle, Tim Lynch, Donovan Tehan and Hunter Buben. Their was no shortage of offense as well as forwards Alex Morley, Austin Buben, Logan Stroud, Alex DelVecchio, Adam Zager, Kyle Secor, David Sader and Tommy Henry worked feverishly in the Titans’ zone along with their defensive partners to put the puck in the net eight times. The Cudas put on a display of impressive skating, passing and puck handling. We were treated to one-timers, cross-crease passes, deflections on net and slapshots. Goaltender CJ Judd posted his 6th Shutout of the season.

BARRACUDAS: 3 Jr. Bulls: 1
In game two the Cudas matched up against the Jr. Bulls looking to sweep the season series. The Cudas found that the Jr. Bulls came to play as the two teams skated tough with neither team gaining an advantage on the scoreboard until 3:31 left in the first period when (23) Donovan Tehan took an (25) Austin Buben pass, skated into the zone and launched a frozen rope slapshot from the deep right circle which beat the goalie. In period two the Cudas struck again as (9) Alex Morley took a (7) Nikita LaChapelle pass and fired the puck on net finding paydirt. With a two goal lead going into the third the Cudas felt comfortable but were not finished as just over midway through the third period, (61) Kyle Secor took a (17) Tim Lynch offering and snapped it on net from the left circle and past the goalie for the score.
