East Gwillimbury, ON: -
The EGMHA Peewee AA Eagles had an exciting weekend Nov 22-25, winning the Georgina Sylvia Tremblett Memorial Regional Silver Stick tournament!
The Eagles began the round robin Thursday by holding off a late game push from the host Georgina Blaze to take the game 3-2. On Friday, they beat the Rideau St. Laurent Kings 3-1, holding them scoreless until the last 2 seconds. Approaching their third game on Saturday, the undefeated Eagles needed a win or tie for a definite semi-final spot, while the Mississauga Terriers needed to win by two goals for a higher goals for/against average. After two tough periods, the Terriers led 3-2, with four of the goals scored on power plays. E.G. evened the score with just over three minutes left and, soon after, Mississauga pulled their goalie and scored a go-ahead goal. With their goalie again sidelined, the Terriers pushed for another goal. Instead, the Eagles put the puck in the empty net, then held the score at 4-4.
In Sunday morning''s semi-final, our Eagles outplayed the Barrie Colts for a 1-0 shutout. Scoring in the final game vs. the Humberview Huskies began with a EG power play goal midway through the first period, that was answered by two from the Huskies in the last two minutes of period one. The Eagles then tied the game mid-second period and gained the lead in the third - a sweet hat trick for #3, Richard Whittaker! Final score 3-2.
Congratulations Eagles on winning the Regional Qualifier, and good luck in Michigan at the International Silver Stick in January!
