Those Girls Are Gonna Play Some Puck!
For the last couple of years, the high school girls in Erie County have been calling for a school-sponsored hockey league they can play in. Well, today in The Buffalo News is a story about the new Western New York Girls Ice Hockey Federation. Looks like those girls are finally gonna play some puck in their school colors starting this fall.
While some are trumpeting this as the girls in the area triumphing, I see a bigger picture – the continued dominance in high school hockey by WNY schools, only now with an added dimension. Year in and year out, Erie County puts out superpower boys teams that battle for the state title perennially. Now the girls get to join the fray and show the other young ladies in this state what’s up when it comes to varisty hockey.
Go get em, chicas. Let em know 716 is where it’s at.
