Tykes' determination an inspiration to spectators and coaches

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Inspiration. It comes in small doses. In this case, four foot tall, skate-wearing doses!

Watching our Gator Ted's/Tomson Metal Tyke Select Sabres take on AA and AAA teams from Brantford to Orangeville, you can't help but be inspired by these kids. With a no-quit attitude, they have pushed forward through their first eight regular season games and spent every ounce of their energy to compete. It's been an incredible coaching effort by Todd Dukeshire, Chad Boehmer and Scott O'Dell which has prepared the Tykes to go head-to-head against teams that have already been together for one or two seasons.

And that coaching effort continues to pay off as the team's skill increases tenfold each week. And with a taste for putting points on the board, lead scorers Hunter Bosch, Shane Hanley and Logan McCarles are on the hunt for more.

The Tykes' inspirational focal point is powerhouse goaltender Dylan Dukeshire whose incredible performance between the pipes has uplifted his team game after game. Backing Dukeshire in keeping the defensive zone clear is a list of tough defensive players such as Stephanie Glenney, Will Kline and Zac MacLellan with Hunter O'Dell and Shayne Scullion steadily frustrating opponents in their zone.

In their first year playing full-ice games, two times a week, wingers Nick Boehmer, Evan Jeffrey, Mitchell Mingay, Logan Rosa and Jamie Stanton have worked hard on their offensive speed to capitalize on opportunities created by face-off winning centers Ben Harrison and Mathew Oosterveld.

With what the Tykes have shown us in their first two months together, we are expecting an unforgettable season. Head to a local rink and let your FHA teams inspire you!
