Minor Atom AA
The Minor Atom AA's sponsored by Ken Beattie Ltd. traveled to Newmarket last week for a mid week tilt to take on the up and coming Redmen. The young phenoms knew they had to be sharp as the home side was notorious for starting out quick.
Well quick it was as the game started early. If the pups were lost they would miss it completely. And what a start it was as Cole "Shoots like a Cannon" Turcotte smashed one home to take an early 1-0 first period lead. Assists by Colin Ewing and Jacob Holmes. Next to strike was the big shot of Wylie "the Wizard" Birkett as he made no mistake on passes from Graysen Alexander and Hayden Santo. 2-0 after one.
Still down one to start the second as the young stars kept up the attack. On an incredible feed from the corner by Steven Mercer to Birkett who one timed it on goal, the keeper sprawled and angled the puck away but it was "All-Star" Alexader that put it home for a huge 3 goal lead. Then late in the third on what looked like a broken play, Dalziel Kirby battled for the puck, somehow found the strength to make the play up to a streaking Turcotte who dished one to Jackson "Fly like an Eagle" Vojin who wrapped it in on a shorthanded play to be up four with one to go.
In the third, (and back to a full squad finally) the boys let up a little as the Redmen wanted to break the goose egg. They tried with their might but our young wall we call "Balls" was equal to the task and he stopped every shot with pro like form to keep his no-no intact. Great work Scotty. Then near the end of the third, "Shoots like a Cannon" Turcotte put it to bed on another heads up play from Mercer and Mitchell Smilsky. Great 5-0 win.
Then this past turkey day, the boys were again gracious hosts to the Redmen on the back end of the home and home. Would the visitors claw back or would the young studs remain unbeaten?
From the drop of the puck, it was all home side as they took command and kept the play in the far end for all of the game. Cycling down low, back to the point, and even the give and go as they created chance after chance. It was not until Michael "the Magician" Meszaros took one from the neutral zone, he had one man to beat as he busted it wide. With an incredible wind up he took the shot which bulged the twine. 1-0 home side after one. Assists by Birkett and Hayden Forrest.
In the second it was more of the same as the boys really made some tremendous plays. Kyler MacNeil got to the puck on time as he flipped it to Turcotte who's shot found "the Wizard" Birkett all alone out front and BANG, 2-0. The only break down this period was on a freak pinball play from the top of the circle that somehow found the back of our net to make the game close. 2-1 after two.
In the third it was all home side as great passes created incredible chances. Kyler "K-dog" MacNeil did not lose his way as he finally found the back of the net after ringing one off the post. Assists from Caleb Thompson and Jacob Longfield. Then to cap it off, "the Mighty" Mercer banged in a beaut on passes from Ewing and Holmes. Make the final 4-1 home side.

The team was in Markham to face the Waxers Sunday (Sept. 30). With the team fire rekindled the boys skated to a 4-1 victory. Jeremy Anderson found the net in the second period, assisted by Caden Maher and Wade Cumberland.

Connor DeVries found the mark next assisted by Maher and Brandon Smyth. Ben Coram finished up the scoring for the team in the third, assisted by Darcy Tainsh and Chris Thorne. Keeper Curtis latter was beat when the Waxers powered in a shot in the dying seconds of the game. The boyÕs struggled to maintain their composure as the Waxers dished out some cheap shots and filled the penalty box.
With a bit of a break before Thanksgiving the team faced the Richmond Hill Stars after their holiday feast Tuesday. The Stars slipped one past Latter in early in the second. Mason Coons would start off the scoring for the teamÕs 5-2 victory, assisted by DeVries and Coram. Anderson buried one assisted by Jordan Maiolino. Coons netted his second of the night after retrieving his own rebound form point blank range in the third unassisted, nice hands Mason. Coram netted his second of the night assisted by Coons and Maiolino. The Stars netted one late in the third but Coram battled back in the dying seconds assisted by Smyth and Coons.
