2007 T1 Blue - 2018 Silver Stick Qualifier Tournament Champs!
Congratulations to the 2007 Burlington Jr. Cougars Tier 1 Blue squad and Head Coach Darryl Sinclair for winning the 2018 Silver Stick Qualifier Tournament in Stratford, Nov. 2-4. The team will now move on to the 2018-2019 International Silver Stick Finals in Newmarket, Jan. 10-13, 2019.
The Jr. Cougars played hard with a well-fought 5-4 win on the Friday morning against the Streetsville Tigers, followed by a heartbreaking 2-1 loss with 4.0 seconds left against the Stratford Warriors.
Saturday came with another well fought battle that ended in a 1-1 tie against the Burlington Eagles Gold. Saturday afternoon in their semi-final game, the Jr. Cougars came out with a vengeance and defeated the Streetsville Tigers in a 10-1 win moving them to the Championship game on Sunday, in a rematch with the Stratford Warriors.
Sunday’s championship game was another well-fought 1-1 battle that took them into overtime where they scored from the point to give the Jr. Cougars a 2-1 Championship win!
Great job, Cougars!
