U15 Barry's Salt's Finalists

It was an awesome weekend at the Ayr Hockey Challenge, with an awesome group!!! 4 straight wins to get into the finals and came up short in overtime to a very good team from Paris. Overall it was a great weekend and we couldn't be more proud of this group. 

Simcoe U13 Good Redden Klosler

Played 3 games in the Ayr tournament. They lost 6-0 to Ingersoll, Lost 3-1 to New Hamburg with an empty net goal, and then beat Caledonia in their final game 5-1.  The kids had fun all weekend at the rink and away from the rink. 

Warriors U9 LL Has a Weekend of Firsts in Ayr



Warriors U9 LL Has a Weekend of Firsts in Ayr

        With the January shutdown of Covid our U9 Simcoe Warriors team lost out on the opportunity to play in a tournament for the first time in two years. At last, this past weekend the U9 Norfolk Dental Hygiene Team was able to experience their FIRST FULL ICE tournament, as we attended the Ayr Hockey Challenge.

        Our first game was against the host team Ayr.  We didn’t take long to get on the scoreboard, 43 seconds into the game we scored our first of 6 goals in the game, winning 6-0. The game included our goalies FIRST full ice shoutout and a players FIRST official hat trick.

        Game two vs Thamesford was a great game with back-and-forth action. We went down 3-0, but with strong net minding from our goalie and an inspirational save made during the FIRST penalty shot of his young career, our Warriors fought back to make it a 3-2 game with 35 seconds remaining. With a faceoff win we experienced pulling our goalie for the FIRST time. Unfortunately, after such a hard-fought game we lost 3-2.

         Game 3 vs Lambeth looked to be a must win for any chance to advance to the semifinals on Sunday.  With Lambeth leading 1-0 after the first period, Simcoe continued to push scoring twice before Lambeth scored late in the 2nd to be tied at 2 after 2. The Warriors continued to fight to achieve a 4-2 win. The GWG was the FIRST goal of the season for the player that drove it home. It was one of the best games we played all season, an especially strong game from the defence.

        After several math equations and some impatient moments, we received word that yes indeed we had advanced to our FIRST semi final. Parents and players once again made the travel across snow covered roads, arriving at the old barn in Ayr at 6:30am.  With Warriors orange on our backs and our goalie once again arriving with battle paint on his face, we took the ice to face the team from Beverly.  Unfortunately, our opponents turned out to be too strong for us, giving us our worst loss of the season. Eventually they went on to win the tournament.

         The weekend was a great experience. I’m very proud to coach such an enthusiastic and determined group of hockey players.  Although we suffered such a large defeat in the semis the team still had a blast!! To be in a tournament (The FIRST for several of the kids), to have team success, individual achievements and to see the kids smiling and enjoying time with their teammates is a WIN in itself.   Thanks players and parents for your support and braving out a weekend of nasty winter weather.
