Minor Midget A Hawks Medal Again
Submitted By webmaster on Thursday, January 3, 2019
The Minor Midget A Hawks traveled to Oakville this past weekend for the Richard Bell Memorial AA Tournament,  and came away with a second place finish out of 16 teams from across the province to finish off their tournament schedule for the year.

While not the final outcome the team was looking for in the tournament, the fact that they made it to the finals at all was somewhat of a Christmas miracle due to a number of injuries and a few Christmas vacations the Hawks went into the tournament with a depleted roster.  

The Hawks faced the Brampton 45's, West Mall Lightening, Hamilton Huskies and the Streetsville Tigers in the round robin and advanced to the quarter finals, where they once again faced the Brampton 45's on Saturday morning to secure their spot in the semi finals later in the afternoon.  In the semi's the Hawks faced the North Humberland Nighthawks, who are ranked 6th in the province in the AA loop and were undefeated in the tournament and came out with a 5-3 win. Unfortunately after playing five out of seven games in three days with 11 skaters and 1 goalie, the Hawks tank was on empty for the final game late on Saturday and they lost to Oakville Rangers (Red) in the finals to finish the tournament with a 5-1-1 record.

During the awards ceremony after the game, the Oakville coach summed up the Hawks achievement over the weekend with the following quote. "You boys came into this tournament with an obviously depleted roster and you made it to the championship game, hold your heads high as you did your city proud".  

Special shout out to our AP's Jacob Brun and Tyler Speiglehalter who helped us out for two of our games this past weekend!
