Atom Selects win it all in front home crowd at Christmas tourney

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

The Flamborough Hockey Association held its annual Christmas Select Tournament on December 28-29 - and the Atom Selects were rewarded for their hard work and determination with a first-place finish.

Things got off to a slow start for Flamborough, who took a 9-1 loss from a very strong Burlington club. Cameron Weyrauch netted the single marker for the Sabres.

The boys were able to shake off their disappointment and were eager to play the next game against the Guelph Storm. The Sabres totally dominated from start to finish and won the game 9-3. Isaac Hanekamp (2), Tristan Vangrootel (2), Steven Kocken, Troy McCartney, Dylan Follows, Cameron Weyrauch and Evan Sproule scored for the Sabres, while assists went to Vangrootel (2), Weyrauch (2), Matthew Grant (2), McCartney, Sproule, Hanekamp, Dylan Everett, Kocken and Derrick Monteith.

The Sabres faced off against Oakville in game three, and took an early 2-0 lead. Oakville fought back to within one and were applying pressure, but the Sabres were able to net two more and win the game 4-2. Chris Kusmirski, Matthew Grant, Weyrauch and Vangrootel scored for the Sabres, while Eddy Rattray, Hanekamp (2), Grant, Weyrauch, Vangrootel and Dylan Everett were on the board with assists.

The win against Oakville gave the team enough points to advance to the championship game against the Burlington Stars.

A very even first period ended with the Stars up 1-0. Burlington scored two more goals at 8:33 and 5:52 of the second to increase their lead to 3-0, and it looked like they had the tournament title sewn up.

But Derrick Monteith gave the home crowd something to believe in when he converted a 2-on-1 with Dylan Follows. The Sabres started to gain momentum and were rewarded when Cam Weyrauch slipped one in with 32 seconds left in the second period. Flamborough continued to apply the pressure and Chris Kusmirski brought the crowd to its feet with the game-tying goal.

The tie was short-lived as the Stars countered 14 seconds later. Once more the Sabres came back and once more Kusmirski would score from Grant to send the crowd into a frenzy and the game into overtime.

Flamborough Sabres Dylan Follows scored from Dylan Everett with two minutes and 30 seconds left in overtime to complete the comeback and upset the tournament favourites.

This was a great result against a great a team and it couldn't have happened without the outstanding play of the Sabres forwards and the great defensive play of Nick Addison, Matthew Gelhard, Klyle Somerville, Chris Best, Evan Sproule, Scott Stewart and Eddy Rattray. Goaltenders Mark Vasey and Nick Moffat shared the work between the pipes and did an outstanding job to keep the team in the games with some outstanding saves.

The Sabres also handled the Burlington team in the 3-on-3 tourney, winning the match. Congratulations to Steven Kocken, Evan Sproule, Cam Weyrauch and goaltender Nick Moffat (goaltender) for their efforts.
