The U15 AE team took home the coveted Silver Stick Green Banner this weekend by going undefeated with a 4-0-1 record at the Chatham Regionals. This tournament featured a large number of top teams within the province and the coaching staff couldn’t be more proud of the players and their effort. 

The Sabres started the tournament with a solid 3-1 win over Belle River.  Later that evening, the Sabres were trailing Halton Hills only to rally late in the 3rd period and earn a 2-2 tie.  The final round robin game was against Whitby and was a “win and you are in” game for both teams. The Sabres jumped out to a 4-0 lead eventually winning the game 5-2 to finish first in their division.

The semi-final game was against an undefeated St. Thomas team who had won their division by winning all 3 games and only allowing 2 goals in the process.  The Sabres played an almost perfect game against one of the tournament’s top teams to earn a 2-0 shutout win. 

In the finals, the Sabres faced one of the favourites in the tournament and defending Silver Stick champions in Orangeville.  The final was worthy of a championship game and was a back and forth affair.  During the final, the Sabres took 1-0 and 3-1 leads only to have Orangeville tie the game back up until the Sabres took the lead for good at 4-3 eventually winning the championship game 7-4.

Congratulations again to this group of players who worked hard and deserve this championship. Let’s show them what we can do in Pelham at the finals!
