By Robert Fiorio, AHAI Adult State Tournament Chairman
The 2019 AHAI Adult State Championship Tournament took place April 25-28, 2019, at The Edge Ice Arena in Bensenville.
Over 10 adult leagues from the Chicago area were represented and divisions were very closely contested. In the B Division, Matthews Roofing defeated Windy City Wheelers decisively for another State Championship title. In the C1 Division, Bar Down Benders continued their recent dominance for another State Title over Wags, and and in the C3 Division the Tundra Wookies were not to be denied for their 1st State Title over Filthy McNasty.
The division races were tight and semifinals went into shootouts so games were as close as could be and fun was had by all! Thank yous are extended to Labatts, AHAI, USA Hockey, IHOA, The Edge Ice Arena and all the players, captains and teams who participated!!! All Teams qualify for USA Nationals in April 2020!
