The NorCal Extreme’s 16U youth roller hockey team went 5-0 and captured a championship to pace the local club at a PIHL Tournament earlier this month in Antioch.

The Extreme 16Us took their first game, 3-1, from the San Jose Tsunami Red as Joe Blakewell, Caleb Hermle and Ricky Pacciorini all had goals for the locals. Blakewell and Pacciorini also dished out two assists each.

Next, NorCal defeated the San Jose Junior Sharks, 2-1, behind scores from Blakewell and Tyler Schafer. Schafer’s late game-winner was assisted by Blakewell.

Extreme dominated its third game against Chico, scoring four goals to post its third victory of the day. Two of the tallies came from Blakewell and two more from Hermle, while Pacciorini and Dylan Lee added assists.

In the semifinal against San Jose Tsunami Blue, the local goals came from Henry Campbell, Ryan Kowta and Blakewell. Lee and Hermle also handed out assists.

NorCal then won the tournament title by beating the Chico Firebirds. Schafer had a goal and an assist and Dalton Byard also scored to power the Extreme to victory.

Throughout the five games, local goalie Nic Leacox saved 93 percent of the shots he saw and the Extreme outshot its opponents, 108-62.

Also at the tournament, NorCal’s 14U squad won two of its five contests.

Despite falling to the San Jose Junior Sharks (3-1) and the San Jose Tsunami Red (6-1), the locals bounced back to defeat the Half Moon Bay Cougars, 3-2, and earn a spot in the quarterfinals.

There, in a rematch with the Cougars, the Extreme ran away with a 7-1 win to reach the semis.

NorCal was finally eliminated in the semifinals, where it lost, 6-0, to the Tsunami Red.

On the day, Noah Bristow led the way for the locals with four goals and three assists, while Sam Blakewell, Brandon Pacciorini and Jack Shields added two goals each. Nick Blakewell and Michael Cognetti tallied one goal and one assist apiece.

Additionally, Thomas Witham, Cole Skoog and Keith Walker all contributed assists for the Extreme.
