Bantam AE Clippers - Silverstick Champions
Submitted By charlene on Monday, January 11, 2016
The Bantam AE team took full advantage of the invite to the Silverstick Finals  Tourney in Pelham, Ontario, bringing down the house on Sunday, Jan 10th in  the finals with a convincing 5-0 win against the Huntsville Otters.


The team was invited following a strong performance in the qualifiers back
in December, taking silver and losing only one game in the finals to the
Brampton 45's.  Pumped up and ready to face a battery of tough
competition, the Clippers split the four game round robin: game 1 loss to
Pelham (1-0); game 2 win against Colorado (5-2); game 3 loss to London
(4-2) and a runaway win against a team who trekked here from California
(11 - 0).  This set up the team for semi finals on Saturday, where the
boys faced a team from Petrolia, Ont. Fuelled by inspiration and pride,
the boys earned another shut-out win (3-0) locking up the home team spot
for the finals on Sunday.

The team play just got better and better through the six games, showing character 

and team spirit right through to the final buzzer.  The team represented themselves, their town,

and their Association proudly leaving with many memories that will last a lifetime.


This was a truly special experience, having teams from far and wide travel
to participate. The opening ceremonies celebrated the history of the
Silverstick, which is grounded in building international, cross border
hockey communities. All teams exchanged pins during the ceremonies, but no
pin has more meaning than the sterling silver champion Silverstick pin
each of our Bantam teammates and coaches earned this weekend.

Congrats Clippers and Coaches!
