Novice B in Tillsonburg
There was quite the “Storm” in Tillsonburg!The Saugeen Shores Rowlands Independent Novice B team demonstrated some amazing skill, hard work, sportsmanship and teamwork at the Roy Beechy Memorial Rep Tournament in Tillsonburg October 19-21, 2018.
Our first game was against Delhi. The Strom came ready to play and quickly took control of the puck and play and maintained this control throughout the game. Starting the tournament off with a very successful 9-1 win. Game two was a little more back and forth against the home team of Tillsonburg. The Storm was the first on the board and the play was hard but Tillsonburg replied and we met our match with a 2-2 tie. After a good nights sleep, the Storm was energized and ready for action. Game three we faced Six Nations. The Storm quickly took to the scoreboard with the first goal scored right off the puck drop. The Storms momentum climbed from there giving us another big win with the final score of 9-2 over Six Nations.. We met up against Delhi again in Semi final action. A quick goal in the first minute set the tone for the game. The incredible teamwork executed with the passing of the puck kept the goalie of the opposing team on his toes. A 9-2 win solidified our place for the finals. We knew going into the championship game against the home team we would have our work cut out for us. The stands were packed with Tillsonburg fans and Storm fans alike. It was an electric game. A 3-3 tie game with less than a minute to play in the 3rd period. Nolan Jackson scored unassisted on a breakaway with less then 38 seconds left to give the Storm the WIN. It was amazing for the kids to have the stands full of Storm families, including the Atom B and PeeWee B teams cheering them on. Upsetting the home team with a 4-3 win for the Championship Title.Congrats to Cody Thomson for being awarded the “points leader” trophy for the tournament in the Novice Division. The Storm overtook the Novice category with Sawyer Porter and Nolan Jackson respectively finishing second and third.
