Bantam AA Clippers win Motown tournament
Congratulations to the Bantam AA Clippers on winning the Motown
Cup in Detroit Nov 14-16.
The Clippers went 2 and 1 in round robin
play. In Game 1 on Friday, they defeated the Youngstown Phantoms
(Pittsburgh) 3-1. On Saturday afternoon, the Clippers lost their only
game of the tournament, playing at the Joe Louis arena, to the Port Huron Flags
in a close game 4-5. Facing elimination in Game 3 on Saturday night, the
Clippers delivered a stronger performance, defeating the Redford Royals
(Detroit) 6-4. Learning from their experience with a late curfew on
Friday night, after attending the Blackhawks vs. Red Wing game, an
earlier curfew was set for Saturday night. The team delivered their best
performance of the tournament in the Finals on Sunday. With an empty net
goal late sealing the victory, the Clippers defeated the Phantoms 3-0 to take
home the cup.
