FINAL SEASON STATS ARE NOW POSTED. CHECK OUT THE STATS PAGE! (I did a little end of year number tweaking - only to increase your numbers - to capture a few unaccounted for assists. Please contact me if you think my numbers regarding you personally are significantly off, and I'll see if I can get the game stat sheets back to recheck them.)
Congratulations, boys, on being SSE Winter TournamentCHAMPIONS!!!
Congratulations on your silver medal at the West London Tournament!
Congratulations, boys, on winning GOLD at the Canadian Hockey Enterprises (CHE) Tournament in Montreal!
Get better soon, Marcus! (Note - in the bad coincidences department: on my younger son's team, another defenceman with the #5 on his back was lost for the rest of the season, him with a broken wrist - it just happened to be my son, Patrick, whose style of play is very much like that of Marcus. Hmmmm! What is it with that #5?)
Upcoming End of Year 2-hour Fun Practise:
Saturday, March 28th, 8-10 p.m. @ Glen Cairn Arena.
Playoffs against Oakridge
1) Oakridge 3 SSE 1 (Oakridge leads series 1-0)
2) Oakridge 5, SSE 4 (Oakridge leads series 2-1)
3) SSE 4, Oakridge 3 (OT) (Oakridge leads series 2-1)
4) SSE 4, Oakridge 0 (series tied, 2-2)
5) SSE 4, Oakridge 1 (SSE wins series 3-2)
What a comeback!!! Down 2 games to 0; down 3-1 mid way through the 3rd period of the 3rd game, minutes from elimination... to come back with 3 goals to win that game and then outscore Oakridge 8-1 over the final two games. What that means is that, in this series, from that moment when we were down 3-1 in the 3rd game to the end of the series, OUR BOYS OUTSCORED OAKRIDGE 11 TO 1. WOW!!!
City Finals vs. West
1) West 3, SSE 0 (West leads series 1-0)
2) West 5, SSE 2 (West leads series 2-0)
3) West 5, SSE 3 (West wins, series 3-0)
This series was closer that the 3-0 sweep suggests. Both the 1st and 3rd games went down to the wire, with fluky and very late 3rd period goals deciding the outcome; and the 2nd game was 3-2 heading into the 3rd period.
CONGRATULATIONS, BOYS, ON BEING CITY SILVER MEDALISTS!
NEXT YEAR, WE'LL WIN GOLD!!!
This site will remain operational through the summer. It's not too late to submit pictures. In fact, please DO submit a picture of your son, if you want a very nice, laminated page indicating your son's year end stats. I've done this for teams in the past and the boys really seem to love getting these.
submit a good picture for the roster page (so everyone will know who
scored that last Crosby-like goal or made that last Brodeur-like save!)
Please send appropriate pictures to me, of our boy's on the ice or at social get togethers (tournament road trips, hotels, restaurants, team parties, etc.) , so I can review them for the Photos Page.
