Novice A Stars are Boston Pizza Cup Finalists
Submitted By Tom Watson on Monday, October 17, 2016
This past weekend the Novice A Stars represented St. Thomas at the Boston Pizza Cup held here in St. Thomas.

We opened the tournament on Friday with a strong game against Fort Erie.  Our offense finally kicked in and we came away with a 8-0 win.  On Saturday morning, in our second game, we ran up against a strong Riverside Rangers team and dropped a 6-3 decision.  We bounced back in the afternoon against a tough Lincoln Blades team and worked hard to gain a tough 1-1 tie.  In our final game of the round robin portion of the tournament Sunday morning, we ran into the undefeated Guelph Gryphons.  Coming into the game, we needed a win, and to win by 4.  We played our best game of the season, and pulled out a full team effort 6-2 win.

In the semi-final game against Erie North Shore, the team was able to play a complete end to end game of team defense, and skated to a well earned 4-1 win.  That win set up a re-match with the Riverside Rangers in the final.  The team fell behind early, and had a tough time recovering.  The kids worked hard and never gave up, right until the final whistle, but couldn't pull it out.  Final score was 7-3.

Overall a good weekend for the kids.  They worked hard and worked as a team.  The Novice A Stars continue their regular season with their sights set on building on the experience of the weekend. 

Great job boys!!
