A great year for the Novice AE Clippers
This season saw many challenges and obstacles. From the onset we moved up into the YSMHL Novice A loop, due to several teams folding at the Novice AE level. With a structured and focused program placing a strong emphasis on skating the team progressed and were competitive playing a level up. In the OMHA playoffs we came back down to the AE loop and beat Markham and Newmarket in the quarterfinal round robin going a perfect 6 wins and 2 ties. 

Our next challenge placed us against a strong Oakville Rangers team in the semi-finals. We swept the Ranger 3 games to 0. In the OMHA finals we played the Orangeville Flyers who had swept every team in the playoffs thus far. Game 1 in Orangeville saw us shock everyone with our Clippers coming out on top 4-1. We then lost the next three games in a very hard fought series. Game 2 final 3-2 L, Game 3 2-1 L and Game 4 3-1 L. The kids represented Stouffville with class and respect. They earned a banner for our association that they can fondly look back on whenever they come to the rink. Well done Clippers.
