Minor Peewee Blue - Guelph Powerplay Tournament Champs
Submitted By Aaron Walsh on Monday, November 25, 2019
Congratulations to our Jr. Cougars for another amazing weekend and coming out on top in the Guelph Powerplay Tournament.  This 10-team tournament was the most challenging yet as it featured 6 of the top ranked 18 teams in Ontario.

Kicking things off on Friday, the Jr. Cougars were leading in both Friday games 2-1 with under a minute left; however, with the goalie pulled and a player in the box they needed to settle for a 2-2 draw in both games.  Saturday morning was the turning point. With the score 2-1 (yet again!!) versus the Sarnia Sting the Jr. Cougars held down the fort and withstood a furious attack and this time came away victorious.


With day #1 jitters out of the way and a win under their belts, the Jr. Cougars confidence started to show on the ice. Passes were crisper, more shots began finding the back of the net, and the defensive zone 5-card was impenetrable. There was no turning back as the team put together 3 more wins and ended up defeating the host team, Guelph Gryphons, 3-1 in the finals.


Not only did the Jr. Cougars win the tournament but it was their 3rd consecutive title! During this incredible stretch the team has remained undefeated going 13-0-4.


Congratulations on another outstanding tournament weekend!
