FF Jason Carrafiello Benefit Hockey Game

The RiverHawks BOD would like to invite you to attend the FF Jason Carrafiello Benefit Hockey Game on April 1st at 1:00pm at The Rinks in Shelton (doors open at 12pm). The Stratford Fire Department will be playing the Westport Fire Department.

The Stratford Fire Department is hosting a Memorial Hockey Game to honor Stratford Fire Department Firefighter Jason Carrafiello who passed away suddenly on December 26, 2016. In addition to remembering Jason, the Stratford Fire Department will be raising funds to help the Carrafiello Family get back on their feet after their tragic loss.

This is going to be an amazing event with opening ceremonies consisting of Bag Pipers with the Honor Guard, a Ceremonial Hockey puck drop for the family, singing of the National Anthem and a moment of silence with prayer from our department Chaplin.

In addition to that, they will have custom hockey pucks in Jason’s honor, "Carf" Stickers, tee shirts, and raffles. Food and drinks will be offered at Danny O's after the game on River Rd. Shelton.

If you can't make the game, please give to www.gofundme.com/Carf-Hockey. Every little bit helps. Or, buy a cool Hockey Puck and Tee Shirt.

Congratulations to the Squirt As on the State Championship Title

The CT RiverHawks went into the CHC State Tournament had an overall 27-7-6 CHC league play record. During the tournament weekend, the CT RiverHawks played the best Squirt Tier III teams in CT including Southern Stars, Darien, New Canaan Winter Club and Wallingford Hawks. Each game proving to be more difficult than the previous games, the CT RiverHawks never gave up and secured a spot in the Championship Game on Sunday. This would be the sixth hockey game for the team in five days.

 

With the state championship win, the Squirt A team has advanced to the New England District Regional Tournament in Massachusetts March 24-26, 2017.
