The Bantam Rep team had an unforgettable weekend in Forest, Ontario at the International Silver Stick tournament. The team was invited to attend as the Finalists from the Watford Regional Silver Stick tournament held over Christmas.
The boys played Shallow Lake, the Kincardine Champions and handedly defeated them 5-1. Next game, the boys played the Douro Dukes, the Pembroke Champions and faced a tough 3-2 loss. This made the boys have the night to reflect and bounce back to defeat the host team Lambton Shores 7-0 and the Strongsville Mustangs, the Fort Wayne, Indiana Champions 5-1. The strong Saturday finish gave the boys a bye to the Championship game Sunday, only to face Aylmer once again.
The Championship game was a hard fought battle that came down to double overtime and the boys were not going to settle for a repeat of last time - We were able to tuck it over the goalies shoulder to end it and take home the silver stick. The entire team effort all weekend long resulted in this championship- well done boys and coaches.
