Major Peewee AA win gold at Oshawa Hockeyfest tournament!
Congratulations! To our Major Peewee AA  team for their successful Championship win at this past weekend’s Oshawa Hockeyfest Tournament. Their first game on Friday morning against the Oshawa Generals resulted in a 2-1 win, then a 2nd stellar win of 5-1 late Friday night against the Vic-Haute Yamaska team from Quebec.   Even though the Clippers had  a 3-2 loss their 3rd game Saturday night against  the Waterloo Wolves,  they knew their hard work and determination paid off as they were moving on to the Semi Finals Sunday.     

The Clippers were motivated to play their Semi Final Game Sunday at noon against the St. Catherines Falcons.   The game started off with a goal from the opponent in the 1 st period, then the Clippers scored 2 in the 2nd period  to give them  the confidence to work harder to turn this game around.  Three goals in the 3rd period  helped the Clippers move on with a 5-3 win.     

The Clippers faced the Waterloo Wolves again in the Championship game late Sunday afternoon.      No goals were scored until the 2nd period  until 2 goals were scored by the Clippers.   With a goal from the Waterloo Wolves early in the 3rd period making the game 2-1,   the Clippers knew they had to step up their game.   A final goal by the Clippers solidified their game to a 3-1 victory to win the championship!

Congrats Clippers & Coaches!
