GB Gamblers win Clark Cup, Sean Little Scores GWG

The Green Bay Gamblers have won the USHL championship, and incoming freshman Sean Little scored the game winner in the final game of the best-of-5 championship series.

Sean's role on the Gamblers has been mostly as a defensive forward- a role he's likely to take on in Madison when he earns his ice time- so its a pleasant surprise to see him turn up on the score sheet at such a vital time.

Also a pleasant surprise, the Resch Center had an abnormally large crowd of nearly 8,500 for the game. It's nice to see junior hockey get that kind of support in Wisconsin, especially considering how prevalant the "Packers and nothing else" mentality is in the Fox River valley.

Congratulations, Sean, here's hoping its the first a few titles for you in the coming years.
