The Titan A Bantam Black picked-up where they left off before their unsuccessful run at the DC tournament championship by winning both weekend games. Falling one game short of the championship, the Runner-up status did not sit well with these proud boys feeling that banner was theirs. The Titans came back home, refocused their frustration, and played two solid games. Saturday night the NJ Freeze came to Wall Arena and ran into a Titan team determined to settle on nothing less than victory! The Titan defense and goalie Thomas Wiedmann gave away nothing in the first period despite playing a short bench with only ten skaters. 
After the scoreless first, Timmy Behan got the Titans on the board first off a nice feed from Sabs to take the 1-0 lead. “Weeds” and the Titan “D” made the one goal stand up throughout the second, which included numerous power play opportunities for the Freeze and a 5 on 3 for two full minutes ending the second 1-0. Weed’s good fortune and shut-out chance finally ran out at 11:29 of the third when killing a powerplay. A errant pass from behind the net deflected off the back of his leg and into the net for the 1-1 tie. Weeds was snake-bitten once again on the powerplay kill when the Freeze found the open man in front and zipped it past the goalie for the 2-1 score.
This clearly put the fire back into the Titans offence. Noticeably winded by playing a short bench, the boys fought threw it as they shifted into a new gear and went to work. Weeds and the Titan “D” took care of business in their end and would never let the Freeze have another sniff at their goal. At 4:29 Billy Regan took the puck at center ice and bull rushed it up the gut of the Freeze and rifled it past the goalie for the 2-2 tie. At this point the Titans were not going to settle for a tie and let Weeds’ awesome night, with 25 saves on net, go for nothing. Timmy Behan logging tons of ice time found some stored energy with Billy Regan and cashed in the game winner at 35 seconds left for the come from behind 3-2 victory! A game that every parent felt proud to be associated with this group of players. 
The Titans Traveled to Aspen Ice to play the NJ Renegades on Sunday and picked it up a notch. The Renegades were no match for the faster and better skilled Titans. Billy Regan started the scoring at 7:04 in the first and the Titans never looked back.
Titans Jonathan Weinstein and Charlie Morton followed shortly afterwards and the rout was on. Thomas Wiedmann, starting between the pipes, continued to show the good form we saw in Saturdays victory by keeping the Renegades off the board ending the first 3-0.
The second period saw Billy Regan bury his second goal and third in two days for the 4-0 lead. “Weeds” was replaced at 7:19 to share time in nets with the Monkey Boy (Cody). Cody didn’t have much time to settle into the game when the Renegades went onto the powerplay minutes after entering the game. Reilly stopped the first and second shot, but a loose re-bound found its way over a sprawled out goalie for a 4-1 score. Not giving the Renegades any hope of a comeback, Charlie Morton answered right back with his second goal at 3:00 and regained the four goal cushion. The Renegades set up a  nice give and go pass at 1:27 that Codeman never had a chance at to end the second 5-2. Charlie completed his hat-trick at 11:49 of the third and crushed the spirit of the Renegades for good. With the 6-2 lead and victory at hand, the Titans went into defensive mode. Cody and his “D” gave the shell shocked Renegades no hope for another goal and skated off the ice with the 6-2 win. Hats Off! Awesome weekend for all.
