Grade A for Atom B at Oktoberfest A Level Tournament
Submitted By Lester B. Nessman on Sunday, October 27, 2019
On a wild and stormy weekend, the Unifor Atom B Storm stormed the Oktoberfest "A" Tournament and nearly swept their way to victory.

Friday's opening match saw the Storm taking on the Cambridge Hawks. With less than a minute to go, Storm goalie Lincoln Lamont was pulled for the extra attacker, and the Storm equalized 2-2 to end the first game with a point.

Next up, having made the long drive from Sudbury, was Copper Cliff. The Storm prevailed 4-0, and the momentum was beginning to build.

Saturday's opening tilt was against Mississauga's Lorne Park at the famous "Aud" - the Kitchener Auditorium. Flying above the Storm were banners with the names of Kitchener Rangers and NHL players such as Larry Robinson, Bill Barber, Paul Coffey and Scott Stevens. The Storm boys weathered the attack, pulling away from a close 4-3 game to end up winning 6-3. 

Saturday's 2nd match-up was against the GTHL's Hillcrest Canadiens, who were dispatched 6-0. This meant that the Storm topped their pool and would advance to the semi-finals against the Barrie Colts A team, who draw on a population 10 times that of Saugeen Shores.

Sunday's semi-final was a carbon copy of the opening Cambridge game. Down 2-1, the goalie was pulled, but despite heroic efforts and a final second shot that was stopped, the Storm could not equalize. 

Congratulations to the team and coaches for the excellent effort the Atom B Storm put in, finishing with a stellar 4-1-1 record, 2 shutouts, 19 goals for, and 7 goals against.

Tournament scorers, (in alphabetical order), were Zander Alpaugh, Johnny Ballard, Michael Bourassa, Nolan Jackson, Brendan Lamont, Owen Mercer, Sawyer Porter, Jacob Reinwald, and Hiatt Rich.

Among those picking up assists were, (in alphabetical order), Johnny Ballard, Michael Bourassa,  Brendan Lamont, Cash Masse, Owen Mercer, Sawyer Porter, Jacob Reinwald, and Hiatt Rich.
