Tyke Sabres have team spirit

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

The word team brings many images to mind, and The Gator Ted's, Thomson Metal Tyke Sabres have helped create new team images for anyone who has had the privilege of watching them this season. Images of Tykes cheering each other on deep into a game they will clearly not win; of kids chanting their Sabres songs together on the Christmas float in the Santa Claus parade, of scoring goals, celebrating plays and just having a blast together on and off the ice.

The Tykes have put forth a phenomenal effort against AA and AAA teams over the last two months and to reward their efforts, head coach Todd Dukeshire, along with assistant coaches Chad Boehmer, Scott O'Dell, Tom Harrison and Michelle Oosterveld, worked with team manager Chuck Stanton to setup two exhibition games and give the kids some added game time going into December.

In one exhibition game, the Tykes beat the Burlington Bulldogs 3-1 with goals from Logan McCarles and Logan Rosa lighting up the board. The constant efforts by forwards Hunter Bosch, Shane Hanley and Evan Jeffrey kept the pressure on the Bulldogs while Zack MacLellan and Stephanie Glenney kept the defensive zone clear and continuously frustrated the Burlington offense.

In the second exhibition game, the Tykes came on strong against Oakridges with goals from Nick Boehmer, Ben Harrison, Will Kline and Dylan Dukeshire, who shed his goalie equipment for the first time and put one in the net as a forward. Mitchell Mingay did an outstanding job between the posts, making his first appearance as a Tyke goalie. Hunter O'Dell, Jamie Stanton and Shayne Scullion stood their ground, once again breaking up Oakridges plays in their zone and keeping players away from Mingay's net. Mathew Oosterveld successfully moved the puck into the offensive zone every chance he got.

The Tykes couldn't gain back two goals and lost the match 6-4. But, in true team fashion, they all celebrated their efforts at the end of the game. They congratulated the other team for winning and they congratulated each other for another excellent game. After all, they are a team.
