Silver Stick Regional
Submitted By Mark Coghlin on Wednesday, November 20, 2019
The Bantam LM team had a successful last weekend in Aylmer, where they ended up winning the Regional Silver Stick tournament.

Friday’s games were against St. Thomas Green, and Tillsonburg #1, and the boys came out with two victories - 4-2 and 2-0 - where Will Kenney recorded his first shut out of the weekend.  As it turned out, the two goals against in the first game were to be the only time the opposition lit the lamp for the entire rest of the tourney.

Saturday had our last round robin game, and what a game it was!  The Jets scored on the first shift of the game, and never looked back, recording an 11-0 victory.

Sunday began with a semi-final versus St. Thomas White.  Again, the Jets scored early and exerted pressure on the fore check and back check, while Kenney held off yet another team to keep a clean sheet.  A solid 5-0 win sent us into the final.

The final saw our Jets taking on the Oakridge Aeros team, who were also undefeated to this point.  The weekend’s message of “know your job and execute” continued to show on the ice, as another first shift goal put the team on the front foot, and they did not look back.  For the fourth straight game, Will Kenney blanked the opposition and a 4-0 victory saw the boys lift the banner.

One opposition parent described this Jets team as a “buzzsaw”, which is something the boys will wear as a badge of honour for the rest of the season.
Now, on to International Silver Stick in Pelham in January!
