Silver Stick Regional Champions
Submitted By Dave Hansler on Monday, November 25, 2019
Congratulations to the Minor Midget 'A' team for winning the Silver Stick Regional Qualifier this past weekend in Northumberland!

The Knights had a very successful weekend of play going 2-0-1 in the round robin portion:

Knights v. Gloucester - T 2-2
Knights v. Castor River - W 5-2
Knights v. Whitby - W 9-1

In the semi-final, the Knights game up against a very big and fast Oakville team.  Led by outstanding goal tending of R. Bannister, the Knights held on to get a 3-1 victory to advance to the finals versus the Mississippi Thunder Kings (Ottawa Region).

The finals was a dogfight between two very evenly matched teams.  J. Savoie was his usual steady presence between the pipes while our offence was able to thwart  any push from Mississippi.  In the end, while shorthanded and their net empty, the 6 on 4 didn't matter as the Knights eked out a slim but convincing 4-3 victory to claim the title!

C. Tate led all scorers for the entire tournament with 8 goals and 3 assists.  Accompany that with 5 of our players in the top ten of divisional scoring and solid goal tending, the Knights would not be denied this important victory.  We look forward to taking part in the International Silver Stick Championship in Newmarket in January!

Way to go Ajax!  GO KNIGHTS GO!!!
