Peewees Bring Home the GOLD...
Submitted By Ray Roach on Monday, March 5, 2018
The Peewee Phantoms capped an awesome weekend winning the Championship in a rematch with the London Cobras Blue team this past weekend.

Congrats to our Phantoms once again for some strong showings this past weekend in London.
 While our Novice group jumped a division and didn't get the results they were looking for, it was a good learning experience for our team so show them where they need to be for the Championship in Brampton in 3 weeks.

Our Atom (3-1-1) and Bantam (3-2) also showed well before bowing out in their respective Semi Finals.

...and a big Congrats to our Peewee boys led by Coaches Boissonneauly, Stulp, Kay and Hill for guiding this team to a dominant performance this past weekend. The semi-final and final games was near perfect with a 1-0 nail biter over the London Red Circle Raiders in the semi, Kyle picked up another Shutout. The boys really dominated this game and without the heroics of the Raider goalie and 4-5 goal posts, this game would have been ugly. Kyle had to make a few key saves late to give our guys a chance to grab the win. Myles Kay scored really late in this one with a slick toe drag into the front of the net to give us the margin of victory. 

In the final, the defence closed the door completely on London and Jack Millard made some great saves to also earn a shutout (nice not to get scored on at all in the playoff round) while our back checking forwards kelp their big dogs to the outside and harrassed all game...a 4-0 dominate victory was well deserved and the team, from a fans point of view, looked to execute the game plan to perfection. The job tracking Cobra no. 5 didn't go un-noticed up in the stands...from Devon Lickers, dogging him constantly, and Myles Kay checked him to the point of escorting him to his Cobra players bench in the 3rd period was a thing of beauty... I thought Myles was going to go onto their bench with him at one point.

This team had a bit of controvery early on this season but hard work and determination can deliver the results we witnessed over the weekend.
