Two In a Row! Major Bantam RS Champions
Submitted By Charlene Mason on Monday, April 8, 2019
The Major Bantam Stouffville Clippers RS team defended their 2018 title by winning the Stouffville Year Ender Bender for the second year in a row. They went undefeated in the tournament to claim the championship. The Clippers were the top seed of 12 teams after round robin play beating Newmarket 5-1, Kincardine 6-0 and Beeton 3-0. In a fast paced semi final the Clippers defeated the Niagara-on-the-Lake Wolves 3-0. The final game proved to be the toughest where the team faced a strong squad from Napanee in front of a packed hometown crowd at the Stouffville Arena. The game was close throughout but the Clippers held on to win 3-2 in great team effort. 

Special mention goes out to goaltender Jeffrey Harder who posted three shutouts in the tournament. The Clippers were highly motivated to succeed after a heartbreaking shoot out loss three weeks ago in the finals of the Anje Giajornio Niagara Tournament, ultimately claiming silver.  It was a milestone season for the team reaching the 30 win mark, posting an astounding 30-3-3 record.  Great way to end the year!
