NGHL Labor Day Challenge 14U CHAMPS!!

By 46ersHC 09/08/2021, 3:30pm EDT

The Adirondack 46ers 14U Girls Team traveled to Cromwell and Simsbury, CT to play in their first National Girls Hockey League Showcase this past weekend, the 2021 Labor Day Challenge. The girls got off to a slow start, but ended up beating the Boston Advantage Fighting Crabs 2-0 in their opening game on Friday night. The 46ers came out slow in their 2nd game of the Showcase on Saturday morning against the Princeton Tiger Lilies AA. The 46ers drove the play for most of the game outshooting Princeton 24-11 in the game. Princeton tied the game at 2-2 with 20 seconds left in the 3rd period and grabbed two points with a shootout win (there are no overtime periods in the showcase).

The 46ers 14U Girls rebounded well in their afternoon game, winning against the Mid Fairfield CT Stars 2-1. Goaltender Kori Lynne Semyour was brilliant in net turning aside 26 of 27 shots faced. Sophia Amaya-Gutirrez scored in the 1st period and Anna Monette scored the GWG with 5 minutes left in the 3rd period. The 46ers built on this momentum and won their next games over CT IceCats (5-0) and then the Springfield Rifles Elite (4-3) in the semi-finals to advance to the championship game against the New England Wildcats on Monday morning.

The 46ers played their best game of the weekend in the Championship game. Anna Monette and Lily Pratt opened up the scoring in the 1st period, followed by 2 more goals by Anna Monette in the 2nd period. The 46ers were up 4-1 heading into the 3rd period. The 3rd period saw the 46ers score 3 more goals by Amaya Abellard, Olivia Laflesh, and Anna Monette, capping off the 46ers winning 7-2 over the New England Wildcats.

Where does the name 46ers come from and mean?

The 46-R name was originally thought of in 1930s for hiking members that climbed all 46 high peaks in the Adirondack Mountains.


The name inspired the Adirondack 46ers Hockey Club to be formed in 2017 as a Hockey Club that could represent the many players throughout the North Country. The regional name of "Adirondack" was inspired by the areas within and just outside to the East, North, and West of the Adirondack Park that players come from.

 

The name 46ers was inspiring to the Hockey Club name as it represented athletic ability, determination,  dedication, and accomplishment to climbing all 46 high peaks in the Adirondack Mountains.
