Major Bantams WIN Eastern AAA Championship!!!
Submitted By Andrew Morris on Mon 03 18, 13
The North Central Predators Major Bantams defeated Barrie in a dramatic over-time finish to win the ETA Championship. This was accomplished following three series sweeps in a row over the Central Ontario Wolves, the Peterborough Petes and the Barrie Colts. Congratulations to our Major Bantams and their coaches Andrew Morris and Andrew Hawke!  

After finishing the season at .500, the Bantams entered the OMHA play downs against the first place York Simcoe Express. Coach Morris believes the team competed well in the series but succumbed 3-1 to the Express. YSE has now advanced to the OMHA tournament.

In the first round of the ETA's, the Preds faced the Central Ontario Wolves and defeated them in two straight games, 3-1 and 3-2. In the semi-finals, the Preds squared off against the Peterborough Petes, defeating them in two straight as well. Game 1 ended 3-1 and Game 2 was 4-2.

The finals saw the Preds compete against the Barrie Colts, a team they had never beaten. The Preds defeated Barrie 1-0 in Game 1 and finished the series on home ice on Sunday with a 4-3 overtime win.

Coach Morris considers the championship a great end to the season - a season which saw the team steadily improve in all aspects of the game. The team relied on great goaltending, excellent defensive zone play and special team execution to win the championship. The coaches wish to credit the group of boys who worked to achieve this victory. As Coach Morris said, "It was great to see the entire team come together and watch everyone contribute. As a coaching staff, we are extremely proud of the effort and attitude put forth by the players."

The NCOHA Predators congratulate our Major Bantams on winning six straight in the play-offs - a great achievement in any league.
