2017-2018 Peewee Select Amesbury/Bert Robinson Avalanche Winter Classic

Championship for Halton Hills PeeWee Select Team!


The Halton Hills PeeWee Select Thunder hockey team participated in the 10th annual Amesbury/Bert Robinson Avalanche Winter Classic Select Tournament in Toronto on the weekend of January 19-21, 2018.
In the round-robin portion, the Thunder tied their opening game against the North York Black Knights 2-2, with Noah Kearney tipping in a Kaelon Poynter slapshot with 2 seconds remaining in the game! Matthew Dobbyn also scored for the Thunder.

In the second game of the round-robin, the Thunder played the Faustina Fury and earned another 2-2 tie, with Jack Canavan scoring the tying goal with 3 seconds remaining in the game!  Holden Grandy also scored for the Thunder.

In their third game, the Thunder crushed the Heartland Dragons 8-0, with goals by Jack Canavan (2), Justin Yeo (2), Matthew Gormley, Evan Ribic, Massimo Scorcia, and Holden Grandy.  Caleb Challenger recorded the shutout, and was named player of the game. 

Four points in three games earned the Thunder the second seed in the round-robin portion and a berth in the Gold Medal Final versus the top seed North York Black Knights.
The final was an intense battle between 2 equally matched teams.  The score was tied 0-0 after 3 periods of regulation time, so sudden-death overtime was required.  The game was still scoreless after 5 overtime periods, with plenty of scoring chances for both teams.  Finally, late in the 6th overtime period, Matthew Gormley scored the winning goal and the Thunder won the game 1-0, and the tournament championship!  Cavan Ryan’s stellar goaltending earned him the shutout and player of the game honours.
