THREE EAGLES TEAMS WIN TOURNAMENTS OVER THE WEEKEND
Three more Eagles teams won tournaments last weekend: two of them qualifying for the International Silver Stick Finals bringing the total up to four Eagles teams for the season! Our Under 15 AA team won their CAN/AM tournament in Nashville, the Under 16 AA Gold team won their Silverstick Qualifier in Georgina, and the Under 18 AA Gold team won the Pembroke Silver Stick Regional!

Heading down to Nashville, Tennessee, the Under 15 AA went undefeated in their four games to take the tournament. Defeating Mid-Fairfield 6-1 and tying the Wissahickon Warrios 3-3 on day one, and then beating the Music City Marauders early Saturday afternoon put the Eagles in the championship game against Wissahickon. Learning from their first game against the Warriors, our U15 AA team won the championship game 5-1 to be the champions of the CAN/AM tournament! Congratulations to the whole team and we hope you had a great time in Tennessee.

The Under 16 AA Gold team went to Georgina to compete in a regional qualifier for the Silver Stick tournament. Starting Thursday night and playing the round robin through to early Saturday afternoon, the Eagles went 3-1 with wins against the Upper York Admirals (2-1), Richmond Hill Jaguars (5-2), the Oshawa Generals (4-1), with the lone blemish against the Duffield Devils (4-0). This record was good enough to put the Eagles in the semi-finals where they faced the South Simcoe Storm and won 5-3 to advance to the gold medal game.

On Sunday morning the Eagles had a rematch against the Duffield Devils, and in the same fashion as the U15 AA team, improved their standing the second time against the same opponent and won 1-0 with a goal in the second period. Congratulations to the entire team and good luck in the International Finals in Newmarket!

Finally, the Under 18 AA Gold travelled to Pembroke to compete in a regional qualifier of their own. The Eagles had an incredible weekend winning all four of their games en route to the championship Sunday afternoon. Round robin victories against Rideau St. Lawrence (5-1), Cumberland Jr. Grads (6-2), and the Northumberland Nighthawks (3-1) set up the Eagles for a rematch against Northumberland in the semi-finals Sunday morning.

Just like the other two Eagles teams to win tournaments, a rematch came with a better result as a 4-1 victory over the Nighthawks propelled the Eagles to the finals against Gloucester. Despite Gloucester getting the jump 1-0, it took only five seconds for the Eagles to tie up the game. A goal in the second period and an empty netter sealed the deal as the Eagles won the regional qualifier and move on to the International Silver Stick Finals! Congratulations to the U18 AA Gold team and good luck in the finals in Sarnia!
