Total Team Effort Takes Major Peewee AA To The Championship
Submitted By Charlene Mason on Tuesday, November 14, 2017
The Stouffville Clippers Major Peewee AA team captured the "Mississauga Blackhawks Hockey Tournament" this past weekend. The team started the tournament with a tough 2-1 victory over the West Mall Lightning, behind the stellar goaltending of Jacob Kamerman. Riding the confidence of that opening game, the Clippers overpowered the Ted Reeve Thunder 6-1. Goalie Luca Simone made a number of key saves early in the game, before the Clippers started to roll in the offensive end of the ice.



Game #3 on Saturday morning, against the host Mississauga Blackhawks, was a mirror image of their first game, with the Clippers walking away with a close 2-1 victory. The final game of the round robin format was a battle of the undefeated teams, placing the Clippers up against the Belle River Junior Canadians. It was a hard fought game throughout, which ended with the Clippers taking their first loss 3-1.
On Sunday morning, the Clippers draw the host Mississauga Blackhawks in their semi-final game. After trailing 3-1, the Clippers stormed back tying the game in the 3rd period 3-3, sending it to overtime. After no one scored in the 3 on 3 format, the game went to a shootout. Clippers forwards Kaden Van Namen and Lucas La Marca scored, while Kamerman stopped all shots he facing, sending the Clippers to the championship game against the undefeated Belle River team. The final was a nail bitter. The Clippers quickly jumped out to a 1-0 lead. Belle River immediately responded with a goal to tie it at 1-1. Both teams forced the play with end to end action. The Clippers jumped to a 3-1 lead, however, by the middle of the 3rd period Belle River had tied it at 3-3. The two teams battle to the final whistle of regulation play, which ended all even, and the game went into overtime. In the 3 on 3 of overtime, both teams had plenty of chances with the Clippers hitting the post. Belle River were awarded a penalty, however Simone shut the door and kept the Clippers alive. Shortly after that big save of the game, Van Namen set up Julian Barbera for the winning goal, and handing the Clippers the championship.
The coaching staff, led by Michael Humphreys, stated it took an all round team effort to win this tournament as the Clippers played 4 one-goal games on their way to the championship. All 3 forward lines were playing at a high level, while the defense and goaltending shut the opposition down in the Clippers end of the ice.
Forwards: Kyle Baston, Jack Lynch, Kaden Van Namen, Mateo Guerrieri, Matthew Bembridge, Julian Barbera, Lucas La Marca, Quinn Emmer, Stefan Kastanis Defensemen: Hayden Ker, Ronan Gray, Rylan Chok, Malcolm Elder, John Erodotou, Anish Krishanthan Goalies: Luca Simone, Jacob Kamerman Coaching Staff: Michael Humphreys, Alex McKean, Curtis Davis, Keaton Major
