Tournament Win
Submitted By Dave Hansler on Monday, October 29, 2018
“Congratulations to the Ajax Knights Bantam A team for their successful tournament win in the Oshawa Cup!  Our Knights represented our association proudly!   

The round robin portion of the tournament was not without it’s challenges.  In our first contest, after having played a late league game in Trenton the night before, the team got off to a sluggish start ultimately falling to Whitby Wildcats Blue 5-1.  After a good nights rest, our Knights went on to garner their first victory of the weekend on Friday with a 2-1 win over Nickle City.  Later in the day, we faced a strong team with an incredible goaltender, the Aurora Tigers that ended in a deadlock, 1-1.   With the win, the tie and other results by the teams in our group, our Saturday night game against the Oshawa Generals was merely a matter of circumstance.  Regardless of the result, we were poised to enter into the playdowns for Sunday.  And it showed.  Oshawa gave our team a sound thrashing resulting in a 5-2 loss and an overall round robin record of 1-2-1.  This loss was most certainly our wake up call.   Sunday morning, we would face the round robin first place Aurora Tigers yet again.  Our Knights game out flying and very quickly attained a 4-0 lead with a hat trick by B. Morrison and strong goaltending by V. Nguyen.  Aurora attempted to come back and was able to bury but one puck in our net, but an empty netter solidified a 5-1 victory and an advance to the final versus the Clarington Toros who had defeated the Whitby Wildcats Blue.   The final proved to be a tight contest between two very equally matched teams, our Knights and the Clarington Toros.  Teams exchanged goals throughout the contest with A. Reilly garnering a hat trick and R. Bannister proving in the clutch to be impenetrable in goal.  The Knights hung on through the dying minutes with a one goal lead, a player in the penalty box and a vacant Clarington net.  6 on 4, our Knights pushed back an onslaught to claim victory for the game and the tournament!   Well done, Knights!!”
