Warhawks take home Admirals Cup

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

December 28, 2016 — To say that the Arrowhead boys hockey team is on a roll right now is an understatement. That was never more apparent than Dec. 28 at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena.

Taking part in the Milwaukee Admirals Cup championship game against Whitefish Bay/Nicolet/Shorewood, the red-hot Warhawks broke away from a 1-0 lead after the first period and blitzed the Storm by scoring 11 goals in the final two periods en route to an easy 12-3 victory.

Arrowhead, ranked No. 8 in the state, won the Admirals Cup title for the fifth time in the last 10 years. The Warhawks also won for the 10th straight time and improved to an impressive 11-1 on the season. In the last four games, AHS has outscored its opponents by a lopsided 24-6 margin.

"We're scoring a lot of goals right now, and that's taking a lot of pressure off of the defense," said Arrowhead coach Carl Valimont. "Right now, it's really kind of simple. These guys shot a lot of pucks in the offseason, and that hard work is showing right now. Their shots are better, they come harder and we had some really nice goals in the championship game. The bottom line is the guys put a lot of hard work in, and that's showing so far. This is good right now, but we still have a lot of work to do."

Arrowhead hockey team wins two more, moves to 10-1

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

December 26, 2016 — The winning continued for the red-hot Arrowhead boys hockey team.

After scoring a 7-4 Classic 8 Conference victory at home on Dec. 23 against Kenosha, the No. 8-ranked Warhawks bounced back in strong fashion on Dec. 26 and scored a come-from-behind 5-2 victory over 13th-ranked Homestead at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena in the Milwaukee Admirals Shootout.

The pair of wins gave Arrowhead a nine game winning streak and a record of 10-1. The Warhawks were scheduled to play on Dec. 28 at the Panther Arena in the championship game against Whitefish Bay.

"The guys are playing well and our effort has been consistent all season," said Arrowhead coach Carl Valimont. "We got a nice win today against Homestead. They've got a good team. We fell behind, but the guys showed some resiliency and fought back to get the win. I think we wore them down with our depth. So far, so good. We still have some things to clean up, but the guys are off to a good start."

Red-hot Arrowhead dominant in win over Sun Prairie

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

December 20, 2016 — It only took about one minute for the red-hot Arrowhead boys hockey team to impose its will on visiting Sun Prairie on Tuesday night at the Mullett Ice Center.

Actually, it was 74 seconds to be exact.

The Warhawks struck early and often against the Cardinals, exploding for four goals in the first period and rolling to an impressive 5-0 victory over the visitors.

Arrowhead got into the power play just 62 seconds into the game, and 12 seconds later, senior Connor Akers found the back of the net to give his team a quick 1-0 lead. Patrick Berges and Ben Beversdorf assisted on that goal.

But that was only the beginning of a brilliant first period by the No. 8-ranked Warhawks. After the goal by Akers, Arrowhead put three more goals on the Cardinals to take a 4-0 lead after the opening period.

The Warhawks added one more goal in the second period and continued to dominate the time of possession in the final period despite not scoring.

Valimont has Warhawks hockey back on track

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

December 15, 2016 — Carl Valimont has been a friend of mine ever since he was named the Arrowhead boys hockey coach back in the summer of 2000. We met each other after Don Mullett, who built the Mullett Ice Center on the grounds of Arrowhead High School in memory of his father, Howard, arranged a meeting.

Certainly, covering hockey was not my strong suit. While I had covered the budding Arrowhead program from a distance for several years, Valimont quickly got my interest going in the right direction. It had a lot to do with his personality, his approach to the game and his positive attitude with the kids and the program.

It didn't take long for Valimont to establish himself as the best coach the program had ever seen. With his professional playing experience with the Milwaukee Admirals, he had everything it was going to take to turn the Arrowhead program into a winner. Mullett knew exactly what he was doing when he personally guided the personable Valimont to Arrowhead.

It only took him a few years to take the program to a higher level. He led the Warhawks to their first WIAA state tournament bid in the winter of 2005. The Warhawks stunned many experts that year by advancing to the state-championship game where they eventually fell to No. 1-ranked Superior in overtime.

Arrowhead hockey team rolls over Cedarburg

By Chuck Delsman (Lake Country Reporter)

December 14, 2016 — It was a frustrating start Tuesday night for Arrowhead's boys hockey team against Cedarburg.

In the first period, the Warhawks dominated play, out-shooting the visiting Bulldogs at the Mullett Ice Center by a lopsided 16-6 margin. But despite that dominance, No. 9-ranked Arrowhead found itself on the wrong end of a 1-0 score after the first period.

That frustration continued early in the second period when the Warhawks failed to connect on their first 10 shots.

But the Warhawks finally found the back of the Cedarburg net on their 27th shot when Connor Akers scored on a rebound to tie the game at 1-1.

That goal by Akers was just the start of an avalanche of goals by Arrowhead in the second period. Five goals later in a span of just 3:08 late in the second period, and Arrowhead had a 6-1 lead after two periods.
