Tyke Sabres excel at first tournament

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

The Gator Ted's / Thomson Metal Flamborough Tyke Select Sabres were tough competitors in their first tournament. The Tykes won three straight games and fell one game short of making it to the finals in the Milton, Goodlife Fitness / Beaver Hockey tournament held over the Christmas break.

The first game of the tournament against the Raiders Select (1) team ended with the Sabres up 3-0, with Dylan Dukeshire capturing his first shutout of the season. Shane Hanley opened up the scoring for the Sabres halfway into the first period firing a shot past the Raiders' goalie. The Sabres second goal was a beautiful wrist shot from Ben Harrison in the second period and then two minutes later Matthew Oosterveld put a move on the Raiders' defense and passed to Stephanie Glenney who netted the third goal to pad the lead. The tough defensive play by Mitchell Mingay and Shayne Scullion kept the third period scoreless except for a close call with a kicked-in goal by the Raiders that never made it to the scoreboard.

The second game was an edge-of- your-seat battle between the Sabres and the Hespeler Shamrocks which ended in a 2-1 win for the Sabres. Ben Harrison opened up the scoring early in the first period on a perfect pass from Logan McCarles. The Shamrocks answered right back with a goal of their own three minutes later. The powerful defensive efforts of both teams led to a scoreless second period with Shayne Scullion, Mitchell Mingay and Matthew Oosterveld once again keping their zone "Shamrocks free".

With four minutes to go in the third period, Evan Jeffrey moved up the ice and made a perfect pass to Logan Rosa who drilled the puck past the Shamrocks goalie to clinch the Sabres win.

The Sabres won again in their third game against the Milton Winterhawks with a blur of passes and a barrage of shots at the Milton net. Jamie Stanton netted the first goal halfway through the first period on a pass from Will Kline. In the second, Hunter Bosch backhanded a pass to Ben Harrison who answered Milton's goal with his own to make it 2-1 and Stanton scored again in the second taking a great pass from Logan Rosa and putting it past the Milton goalie. In the final period, Nick Boehmer padded the lead with a goal off of a sweet pass from Hunter O'Dell. The Sabres finished in front once again.

With an undefeated tournament record, the Sabres went on to challenge the Georgetown Raiders' second team to make a run at the final playoffs. Despite an outstanding effort on all fronts, the Sabres lost their first game of the tournament against the Raiders and were out of the finals.

As the kids stood on the ice to receive their tournament medals, their faces beamed with pride. They ended their very first tournament with three wins and one loss, their goaltender Dylan Dukeshire had won the Hottest Goalie title in the skills competition and they even took a shot against the tough Georgetown team and almost made it into the finals. They should be as proud of themselves as we are of them.
