Major Peewee AA's Bring Home Silver
Submitted By AMHL on Monday, November 19, 2012
The Major Peewee AA’s won the silver medal at the Stoney Creek Tournament of Champions (Nov 16-18) losing 5-4 in the championship game against the Nepean Raiders, currently the #2 ranked Peewee AA team in Ontario.

There were 16 teams in a very tough Peewee division. The Avalanche lost their first game 4-1 to the West Mall Lightning and then defeated the Buffalo Southtown Stars 5-2 and the Hamilton Huskies 4-0 to advance to the quarter-finals against the Belle River Canadiens. Down 3-1 in the third period, the Avalanche stormed back with three goals to edge the Canadiens 4-3.

In the semi-finals against Stoney Creek, the Avalanche were down 3-1 at the start of the third period again. They fought back and took a 4-3 lead only to have Stoney Creek tie it up with less than a minute to go in regulation. The Avalanche prevailed by a 5-4 score in overtime, winning it in the final 1-on-1 shift of the 4-on-4, 3-on-3, 2-on-2, 1-on-1 overtime format.

In the championship game, the Avalanche were down 5-2 in the third period and fought back with two goals in the last minute with their net empty to make the final score 5-4.

The coaches are extremely proud of the boys’ grit, determination and great team play throughout the tournament.
