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.

MINOR MIDGET TERRIERS WIN GLEN BELLERBY TOURNAMENT!

How about those Minor Midget Terriers? Or should we say… How about those Champion Minor Midget Terriers? They beat Ontario’s top teams to win the Glen Bellerby Tournament in Barrie, ON. How about our captain, and all the Assistant Captains leading their team to the championship. How about our goaltending coming up huge when needed. How about the penalty kill unit that was called on throughout the tournament. Continue reading

Peewee Terriers Win Sudbury Silver Stick Qualifier

pwss1teamWhat a great, emotional weekend! Our Peewee Terriers took home the hardware and the banner in style last week. They made the trek north to Sudbury to take on some strong Northern Ontario foes. They played very well during the Round Robin, and qualified for the finals with 3 – 1 record, against a very strong Caledon Hawks team.

pwss1The Terriers prevailed by winning 2 -1 in a close fought and obviously exciting game. Did I mention we popped the winner in OT!!!!!

pwss3The win was especially gratifying because head coach Todd Taus, grew up in Sudbury, so the stands were filled with Todd’s relatives along with all our other fans. Most had never seen Todd’s son Zachary even play hockey, let alone play at this high level. To add to the drama, it was Todd’s birthday on the Sunday that they won.

pwss4So needless to say if was great weekend for the Taus family and an equally great weekend for the Peewee Terriers.

pwss5Congratulations to the awesome Terrier families that made the trip north. Congratulations to the coaching staff and most importantly, congratulations to the players who make us proud every time they don their Terrier blue!
