Glancaster Bombers Veterans Memorial Tournament U12A Champs!
This past weekend our U12A South Simcoe Storm participated in the Glancaster Bombers Veterans Memorial Tournament.

The team went undefeated in the round robin  securing 1st place in their division.

Semi finals, the team won 7-1 to advance to Sundays championship game.  The team had the lowest goals against in the tournament by the dynamic goaltending duo.  This also shows how great the defense and forwards played in their zone controlling the game. The championship game they were down early 0-2 at the end of the first. The team always talks about winning periods, one at a time. 

They scored their first goal in the second period, followed by another goal in the third period to tie the game with 4 minutes left. After the third period the teams were still tied. First overtime of 3 on 3 they traded several shots on net without any goals. Second overtime of 3 on 3 and more shots traded and still no goals on either end. Teams moved onto the shoot out round. With the parents on the edge of their seats and other family members watching the live stream from home, the golden goal came from the first shooter, while the goalie stopped all 3 of Glancaster‘s shots!!!  SOUTH SIMCOE STORM WINS their first tournament of the year!!!!!!

All weekend the players were blocking shots  killing penalties, working hard, having fun, supporting teammates, loving adversity and playing through tough times.

Thanks to the parents who never stopped cheering. Your support is amazing!  Also special thanks to M.B., B.G., J.M. and C.W.

For the parents and fans that don't know, there was a sign up above in the dressing room of our semi final game that read "talent wins games, Teamwork wins championship".

I agree 100%, teamwork wins championships.
