Minor Peewee City Champions!

Magic happened on April 3 at Erin Mills arena.

Usually our meeting room between the two ice surfaces is dark and locked. GTHL teams are playing in distant rinks like Herb Carnegie or Scotiapond in the last few games before the season ends, but on April 3 it was different.

The Minor Peewee Terriers were on the ice on Rink One, the meeting room was open, the coffee was warm, there were endless doughnuts and the rink was packed.

Atom AA – International Silver Stick Champions!

Congratulations to our Atom Terriers!!!

Recording an impressive 3-0 record in the round-robin, our Atom squad managed to fend off top-ranked teams from across North America with a tournament victory.

“I was so nervous in the last few minutes of the finals. When we won I was so happy I couldn’t believe we did it,” said Nicholas Perrotta, a member of the victorious team. “One of my favourite parts was beating North Toronto [#1 ranked team] in the semi-finals. We knew we had to work hard as a team, especially since we were down some players.”

The Terriers are only the fifth Atom AA team from the GTHL to have ever won the coveted championship. This is the fourth tournament title for our Atom team this season. Their banner will now be displayed in Erin Mills Arena.
