Congratulations to our Under 13 A Gold team for winning the Doug Robinson All Star Challenge in West Niagara last weekend! The Eagles went undefeated in their five games to clinch the title in their second trip this season to a tournament gold medal game.

Winning all three of their round robin games against Garden City (5-1), Orillia (3-1), and the Markham Islanders (3-1), the Eagles advanced as the top seed in their group to the semi-finals to play against the Barrie Colts. Up against the Colts who are sitting at the top of their league standings, the Eagles went up 2-0, and held off an empty net push from the Colts and won the game 2-1 to advance to the championship!

In the championship game the Eagles came up against the host West Niagara Flying Aces. After falling behind 1-0 late in the first period, the Eagles tied the game near the end of the second. No goals in the third meant the championship would be going to overtime, where the Eagles scored on 17 seconds in the extra frame! Congratulations to all the players, coaches, and parents on a fantastic weekend and good luck as you enter the playoffs next week!
