Normac Peewee A/E Sabres light it up over the holiday break

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

The Normac Peewee A/E Sabres were certainly in the holiday spirit in December and early January. Christmas lights took on a whole new meaning as the red lights behind opposition goaltending burned brightly as the Sabres hit their offensive stride. With the holiday season ending, the Sabres find themselves engaged in a showdown with Elora for third place in the Harrison Division.

Goaltending has been pivotal in the Sabres recent string of victories. Ian MacGregor was particularly strong in the Sabres tie against the undefeated Georgetown Raiders. Unfortunately, he suffered an injury and his teammates wish him a speedy recovery. Brandon McNamara continues to shine as the victories pile up and the Goals Against Average goes down. AP Goalie Joad Dagnall has joined the squad while MacGregor recovers and was solid in his debut between the pipes limiting Milton to a single goal.

Offensively the Sabres have been led by Dusty Kraag. His unselfish play has set an example as he continues to rack up the goals and assists. Hayden Rion, who was temporarily sidelined, has bounced back well and continues to set a torrid scoring pace. Cal Muirhead's skating has come to the forefront as he continues to add to his assist tally.

Connor Dockrill's return to the line up from injury provided the Sabres with yet another offensive threat and he has been exceptional in recent games. Adam Kurcz has been a work horse and invaluable to the team these past few weeks as a depleted roster caused him to see a dramatic increase in ice time. Thomas Coakwell continues to contribute with his hard work in the corners and Curtis Allan has shown a nice touch around the net and the ability to dangle the puck. Braden Pereira's has shown his versatility as he kills penalties, while Greg Hall exemplifies determination as he never takes a shift off.

Defensively, the fearsome foursome continues to excel. Tyler Buttenham, Derek Love, Mathieu St. Jules and Connor Drown are starting to take control of both the offensive and defensive zones in recent games and their willingness to work hard and jump into the play has benefited the team immensely. Zach Coles and Adam Gunby answered the call when the Sabres were suffering from a spate of injuries and they were pivotal in the team's success.

Coaches St. Jules, Rion, Dockrill and Klym are pleased with the Sabres' progress thus far and their willingness to buy into the concept of team. The playoffs await and hopefully the Peewee team can carry this momentum forward and continue to shine brightly.
