Everett Silvertips street hockey

The tournament will be held Saturday at Clark Park.

It’s been gone for 2 years but this Saturday street hockey returns to downtown Everett. Here are all the details courtesy of the Everett Silvertips…

The Silvertips Street Hockey Tournament returns to downtown Everett after a two-year hiatus this Saturday!
Join us at Clark Park (located 1/2 mile north of Comcast Arena at 2400 Lombard Avenue) starting at 10:00 am for a great day of ball hockey, music, food and lots of fun for kids and adults alike!

Whether you’re a player, parent or a fan coming to watch, Clark Park will have plenty of activity during the Silvertips Street Hockey Tournament.  Games are taking place on Clark Park’s enclosed tennis courts, making for convenient spectator viewing as multiple games occur simultaneously throughout the day.  Some bleacher seating is available outside the courts, but spectators are also welcome to bring along portable folding chairs.

Food will be available for purchase on-site at the park, including hamburgers, hot dogs and other picnic food & drinks through the Everett Youth Hockey Booster Club’s “Kickoff Cookout”, which helps raise money to support youth hockey players and their families.  An ice cream vendor will also be on hand to help you cool off during a warm summer day, plus we’ll have special discounted items on sale from the Silvertips Team Store (cash only please) and music will be playing throughout the day!

Registration opens at 9:00 am and the first games start at 10:00 am.  Teams MUST be registered at least 30 minutes prior to their first game, with ALL participants required to submit a waiver prior to competing.  (Please note that the 10U and Adult Recreation divisions do not begin play until the afternoon.)  Games will start promptly to help keep the tournament on-schedule, so please have your team ready at the appointed game time!  The last game of the day is scheduled to begin at 5:00 pm.

CLICK HERE For the tournament schedule.

The tournament is organized into three youth divisions (14U, 12U and 10U) and two adult divisions (competitive and recreational).  Each team is guaranteed at least three round-robin games, with those results being used to seed teams in a single-elimination playoff.  Playoff brackets vary by division, so be sure to look for your division’s bracket and track the standings to find out if your team has qualified for the playoffs.

One referee and an official scorekeeper will monitor each game.  Players should bring both dark and white t-shirts to help distinguish between teams that may wear similar colors.  Helmets and eye protection are required for all youth division players and recommended for adult players.  Goalie equipment must be approved before your first game.  Other protective gear, such as gloves, shin guards, mouth guards, etc. is recommended but not required.

Team captains should submit a final team roster to the Silvertips by Thursday at 5:00 pm.  Games will continue rain or shine (except in the case of extreme weather conditions).

CLICK HERE for complete tournament rules.  All players are expected to read and understand these rules prior to the start of play on Saturday.  Feel free to seek clarification about the rules at registration or ask a referee prior to the start of the game.

Everett Aquasox Celebrate 30 Years, Prepare For 31st Home Opener Next Friday

June 6, 2014

Everett Aquasox logo

The Everett Aquasox 2014 home opener is next Friday June 13th.

The first pitch was thrown at Everett Memorial Stadium on June 19th 1984. Since that time, generations of fans have grown up with Single A Minor League Baseball in Everett, WA. Next Wednesday the Everett Aquasox will take on the Everett Merchants in the annual Everett Cup and then on Friday June 13th (under a full moon) the Aquasox will start their 31st season.

Bob and Margaret Bavasi began the Everett Giants in 1984. The field at Everett Memorial Stadium hadn’t changed that much from when it was first laid out in 1947. There were just wooden bleachers and lots of lawn seats but that first game was a standing room only sellout with more than 3500 fans in attendance. The team played as the Everett Giants for 10 years and then became a single A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners in 1995. Today more than two million fans have come through the gates, the stadium has been expanded and now includes a new state of the art digital video screen.

MyEverettNews.com spoke with Pat Dillon, who has been the play-by-play voice of the Aquasox since 1998 and says he has the best job in baseball. “To be the messenger and tell the story of what is happening on the field to those who have a real investment in the game is fantastic,” said Dillon. “Even the bus rides aren’t really as bad as people make them out to be.” Dillon says one of his most memorable moments came during a day game in 2003. It was a kids day, the stands were packed and in the top of the 9th inning a Eugene player was hit by a pitch and both benches emptied. A huge fight breaks out and Dillon brings up a picture on his computer of a young Felix Hernandez pulling back that million dollar arm of his, about to throw a hay-maker at a Eugene player. It took coaches, umpires and even Everett Police to finally get the brawl stopped.

Of course Felix Hernandez isn’t the only major league star to play in Everett. While playing for Bellingham, Ken Griffey, Jr. hit his first professional MLB home run at Everett Memorial Stadium. Randy Johnson, Dan Wilson, Jay Buhner and many other Mariners stars did re-hab stints in Everett while Joel Pineiro, Freddy Garcia and Willie Bloomquist played for the Frogs. Another famous Mariner player and broadcaster is coming to Everett for the first time this year. In February, former catcher Dave Valle was named the manager for the Aquasox.

Aquasox baseball in 2014 will be full of promotions and special events including fireworks nights, Bark in the Park where you can bring your dog to the game, Turn Back the Clock Night and Frogstock. One thing special this year is all Monday home games will be Good Karma Mondays where you can walk up to the ticket window and name your price for any upper box seat. Whatever you want to pay will be the price of the ticket and 50% of whatever that is will be donated to the Oso Relief Fund. Click here for more information on what’s happening with the Aquasox.

Everett Silvertips Scoreless in Seattle and Eliminated From Playoffs

March 30, 2014

Everett Silvertips

The Everett Silvertips shut out 5-0.

The Everett Silvertips season is over after a drubbing by the Seattle Thunderbirds at ShoWare Center in Kent Saturday night. Here’s the recap of their final game…

Facing elimination for the second straight night after Friday’s decisive Game 4 win, the Everett Silvertips saw their season come to an end with a 5-0 loss to the Seattle Thunderbirds in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series Saturday night at the ShoWare Center.  The Silvertips are eliminated from playoff contention after falling four games to one in the best-of-seven series, while the Thunderbirds advance to face Kelowna in the second round.

Only 24 hours after exploding for six goals in Game 4, the Silvertips were unable to light the lamp in Game 5.  Austin Lotz (1-4) kept Everett in the game until the third period however, finishing with 26 saves in a game that remained scoreless for nearly 33 minutes.  For the first time in the series, the ‘Tips were outshot 31-24 in Game 5.

Neither team registered a shot on goal until nearly four minutes into the first period, but both teams ended up generating double-digit shot totals as the period remained even.  Goaltender Austin Lotz had the best save of the period in its final minute, diving across the crease to deny a rebound chance and keep the game scoreless.  Shots were 11-10 in favor of the ‘Tips after the first 20 minutes.

Scoring chances were at a premium through most of the second period as Seattle went on to outshoot the Silvertips 9-5.  The T-Birds looked prime to take the lead when Shea Theodore snuck in to receive a weak-side pass alone in front, but Lotz made another big save on his blocker side to deflect the shot away.  Seattle did go on top 1-0 later in the period after Lotz had stopped a shot and saved the rebound only to see Scott Eansor lift a third chance into the top half of the net on his backhand to put the Thunderbirds on top.

The Silvertips then found themselves down by two only 1:15 into the third when Branden Troock slid a cross-ice pass under Lotz for a pivotal early goal.  Alexander Delnov put a low shot inside the far post from the top of the circle at 4:51 and then Troock netted his second of the period two minutes later to make it 4-0 in Seattle’s favor.  Mitch Elliot tacked on a late goal in the final minutes as the Thunderbirds advanced with the 5-0 win and five-game series victory.

Goaltender Taran Kozun (4-1) stopped all 24 shots he faced in net for Seattle.  For the only time in the series, special teams were a non-factor as Everett went 0 for 1 on the powerplay and the Thunderbirds were 0 for 2.
