Heading into the league finals versus Dallas Stars, the Hounds Major Midget team had finished second in regular season play and had gone 3 – 1 (OT loss) in round robin play to advance to the finals with solid, disciplined team play.
The first game in the best of 3 finals saw a closely contested battle with both teams exhibiting close checking, playoff style play with great goaltending….Dallas Stars edged the Hounds 2-1 with a late 3rd period goal. Chance Turner played a solid game in the nets turning away 23 shots.
Game 2 was a well played, playoff hockey with the Dallas Stars taking a 2-0 first period lead. The Hounds rebounded and fought back hard in the second period with a power play goal by Tanner Mingen and an even strength marker by Trey Purdon. The Hounds slowly took over play in the second period and were relentless in generating scoring opportunities against the Stars. The third period was a continuation of the second with the Hounds all over the Stars but could not solve the Stars outstanding goaltending. However, late in the third saw John Stevens pick up the pick on the right side and demonstrated a great net drive in scoring the game winner at the 13:11 mark of the third. Hunter Null recorded the win in the nets and was very strong stopping 24 of 26 shots.
Game 3 was Sunday morning and it was important for the Hounds to have a great start, which the Hounds did and demonstrated a strong team game with many shots generated at the Stars goaltender. The game was back and forth, but the Hounds had the majority of play and badly outshot the Stars 43-23. The regulation score ended 0-0 and 2 overtimes still could not solve anything. In the shootout, both teams scored 2 goals with John Stevens and Tanner Mingen with a huge tying goal replying for the Hounds. Finally, after 11 shooters each, Michael Pyle scored the eventual game and series winner with a great deke move to the right. Chance "no chanci" Turner was excellent in goal and in the shootout, denying the opposition every step of the way.
The championship was great for the Hounds program, players and parents. The teamwork, work ethic and disciplined play demonstrated not only in the playoffs, but throughout the season was excellent and a great model for how team play should be done. It will certainly be a season to remember for everyone involved. Coach Kraft extends big thank you and congratulations to all players, parents, coaches and managers who contributed to the this past season's success.

Visit Facebook at Hounds Hockey for details on how the Hounds Travel teams did this weekend. With a combined record of 11-5, the Hounds will move three of their four travel teams on to the DSTHL championships.
As many of you know, the Hounds have a used equipment shed. We take in used equipment that still has a lot of ice time left in it and find it a home with a new or younger player. The shed helps to offset the cost of hockey in more ways than one, but primarily it makes it more affordable for parents to suit up their players. Our shed is one of a kind here in Houston and we have been doing this since 2004, but we can't do it without your help. Please look through your gear, if there is something your player has grown out of (skates, pads, pants, helmets, sticks, bags, etc) you can drop it at the rink (marked for BAHHA) or email BAHHA. All donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated. Adult sized equipment is also accepted.
