Major Peewee's Heading to the OMHA Finals!
The North Central Predators AAA Peewee team clinched a spot in the OMHA finals starting this Friday in Clarington after beating out the Central Ontario Wolves over the weekend in a best of five series.
The team played an outstanding series where they took control in the first game against the Wolves, and kept it coming throughout the series. In their first game, the Preds won with a score of 7-3. Goal scorers were Aidan Graham, Mitchell Pellarin, Brandon Bressette, Zach Berriault, Garrett Watson, with Isaac Emon scoring 2. Assists went to Bressette, Patrick Brown (2), Derek Sweeney, Nathan Balkwill, Watson and Emon (2). Carson Ricca was between the pipes for the win.
In the next game, the Peewee's kept the momentum going and beat the Wolves 4-2. Both Emon and Pellarin scored 2 goals in the game. Goaltender, Jared Towns took the win in net.
Their third game was mid-week during March-break and was taken by COW with a score of 5-1. Aidan Graham had the only goal for the Peewees, with Ricca and Towns sharing goaltending duties.
With the fourth game back in Lindsay this past Saturday, the boys started the off slow and were down by 3 goals by the middle of the second period. Fighting back the Peewees were able to turn the tide on COW and Emon and Pellarin both hit the back of the net to make the score 3-2 going into the third period. Ricca held the Wolves off for the rest of the game with great defense and forwards who kept pressing their net, scoring another 4 goals to win the game 6-3 and take the series in four. Caleb Creasor, Balkwill, Emon and Pellarin notched those goals, with Taylor Stinson, Bressette, Jason Knox, Balkwill, and Pellarin (2) getting the helpers.
A huge accomplishment for the Major Peewees who now face the Clarington Toros, the Grey Bruce Highlanders, the York Simcoe Express and the Hamilton Bulldogs in the OMHA Finals this weekend in Clarington.
Congratulations and good luck to the Peewee Team!!
