A Very Successful & Fun Weekend for the Minor Bantam AE Team
The boys were great! Game one they came out with a purpose, they had a great first period and took it to the Hamilton Phantoms right from the start. We took the first Game 4-2.
Game two was against the London Bandits. Complete domination from the beginning to the end. Shutout Victory 5-0.
Game three, what a battle, we played the Milton Winterhawks. It was a challenging game as the team were faced with quite a few penalties, but fought hard on each penalty kill. The team continued to be upbeat and positive despite the situation and pulled out another Shutout Victory 2-0.
Having won the three round robin games this put us in first spot in the B pool, so our next competition was the 2nd place team in the A pool, The St. Catherine's Hurricanes. Again, we faced adversity early in the game with several penalties that did not allow us to get going offensively until the second half of the game, but again nearly perfect on the penalty kill. Another Victory 3-1.
Off to the Championship game, second game of the day, late afternoon, after a very fun exciting weekend?? Facing again, the Milton Winterhawks...
Just a great fun Weekend by all the boys & families... They went 5 wins - 0 Losses - (GF 20 / GA 4) Almost perfect Penalty kill, having 26 penalties and only one powerplay goal against, and two shutouts, one for each goalie. Lots fun and a ton of Success, The Coaches are very proud of the boys!!!
