Congratulations to the Red Pepper Hockey Club for being named Beer League Athletes of the Week!

The Red Pepper Hockey Club consists of a potent mix of young aggressive talent and grizzled veteran try-hards.  The RPHC stumbled out of the gates this season losing to long time rivals, Panzer (formerly Miller Lite, formerly El Roco) 13-0.  Righting the ship was slow going but the Pepper Club kept their eyes on the prize and earned a spot in GF’s A league playoffs.  In a playoff fraught with controversy and upsets the Red Pepper arrived at the championship game as the only remaining undefeated team.  The Pepper boys won the championship in a decisive victory over the former-Sioux heavy Panzer team 6-2.  This is the Red Pepper’s 3rd Whitey Cup and 2nd in 3 years.  The Red Pepper Hockey Club is 3-1 in championship appearances with 2 of the victories coming against “Panzer”.

The Whitey Cup will be on display at the original Red Pepper until March 2015.

Congratulations Red Pepper Hockey Club! You are the Red Pepper Beer League Athletes of the Week!  No donation to the Red Pepper Scholarship Fund will be made in their name.

Congratulations to Tanner Tweten of East Grand Forks, MN for being named the Red Pepper High School Athlete of the Week!

Tanner is a Jr. with the Section 8 Champion EGF boy’s hockey team. The Green Wave advanced to the Minnesota State Tournament in part because of a solid game by Tanner against Warroad.
