Skills and Drills with SHU!

Stars Squirt


The Southern Stars Squirt “A” team returned from its holiday break with a 3-3 tie against West Hartford and then battled the Ridgefield Lions and skated away with a convincing, 8-3, victory.

Southern is now 25-6-3 overall on the season.

The Stars traveled to West Hartford and opened the games scoring when Tyler Milrad banged home a rebound in front off the stick of Teagan Garfield. The play was set up by Annabel Raffin, who created a turnover on a pinch and fired the puck towards the goal.

With the game tied, 1-1, another successful pinch at the blueline – this time by Beckett Stenz – created a turnover and saw Colin Scali feed Logan Jones alone in front. Jones’ wrist shot beat the goalie on the stick side and gave the Stars a 2-1 lead.

West Hartford tied the game again midway through the period. Southern took a 3-2 lead before the period ended as Milrad created a turnover in the neutral zone and sprung Alex Melillo and Garfield on an odd man rush. Melillo skated in and dished the puck to Garfield, who deposited the puck into the back of the cage for the goal.

The Wolfpack tied the game a third time in the final stanza to close out the scoring of the game.

Emily Krauss and Layne Jackson combined for 11 saves in goal.

Southern traveled to the Winter Garden in Ridgefield and skated off with a very impressive victory.

The teams skated even in the first period as the horn sounded at 1-1. Milrad collected the Stars tally from a Josh Hackett face-off win.

The second period saw Southern explode for five goals on 20 shots. Milrad scored his second of the game off a scramble in front that saw both Hackett and Garfield pick up helpers.

Jones then extended the lead to 3-2 when he lit the lamp off a Colin Scali shot that was stopped.

Ridgefield closed the gap to 3-2 before Jason Anderson fed Jonathan Vitka in front for a beautiful goal just 11 seconds after the Lions mark.

Jones and Hackett added second period goals to give the Stars a 6-2 lead while Melillo and Hackett each had third period goals to close out the scoring.

In the game, Hackett, Milrad and Jones finished with two goals and an assist while Melillo (1g, 1a) and Garfield (2a) had two points apiece.

Jackson and Krauss made a combined 11 saves in the victory.

The Stars Squirt team returns to action against the CT Barons and New Canaan this weekend.

Southern STARS are the 2016 CHC State Champions!

2016 CHC U16 State Champs SCYH STARS!





Sunday November 6th 2016.

Newington, CT-  It took nearly three overtime periods to determine the 2016 U16 CHC State Champions. In a rematch from last season’s 2015 CHC state finals game, the STARS found themselves in a dog fight with a tough U16 Wonderland Wizards team. The Wizards scored first and held a 1-0 lead at the break. The STARS tied it up late in the final period 1-1, but neither team could put the game away. It wasn’t until the third overtime that the STARS Alex Mozian found a way to score against a solid Wizards goalie to win 2-1. The Wizards were relentless in keeping up the pressure on STARS goalie Ryan Wilson but he would not break. The STARS will head to Nationals in the spring of 2017. Best of luck as the team will now break up and go on to play for their respective High School teams.


The STARS U18 team also played for the CHC state championship game today. The STARS played a gritty Hamden team and found themselves down 3-0 at the first break. The STARS came out flying after the break and scored four unanswered goals to take a 4-3 lead, but Hamden would not quit. A Power Play goal tied it up late to send the game into overtime. Hamden won the face off and ended the game quick.

Best of luck to the U18 STARS who will be moving on after this year. On behalf of the entire organization I would like to thank you for your hard work and dedication while you were a Southern STAR. Your professionalism and accomplishments are unmatched and you will be taking many great memories with you. You should leave with your heads high knowing that you accomplished what only many skaters dream about. You made some friends for life along the way and your coaches have instilled discipline and a work ethic that will help you in whatever path you take in life.
