Ajax Knights Minor Peewee Selects Win SHA Tournament
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Ajax, ON: -
The weather was terrible but the ice conditions where just fine as the Ajax Knights Minor Peewee Selects went undefeated to win the Scarborough Ice Raiders Valentines Tournament.
As mother nature dropped close to 20cm of snow across the GTA, the Knights took to the ice in the SHA Valentines Tournament in Scarborough allowing only 2 goals all tournament to claim the championship.
The Knights went 3-0 in the round robin only defeating the Weston Dodgers 1-0, Victoria Village 4-0 and the Whitby Wildcats 2-1. Sound defence and strong goal tending gave the speedy forwards the opportunity to work their magic getting the Knights early leads in all the games.
In the finals the Ajax Knights faced the Vaughn Rangers. After a hard fought first and second period the Knights headed into the third period with a 2-1 lead. With the clock winding down the Knights scored two quick goals to seal the victory and bring home the championship.
Congratulations to Head Coach John Iannarelli and his staff, Bob Sharkey, Brian Preston, Dave Gendron, JL Maddix and Susan Sharkey. Also congrats to the Minor Peewee Slelect Ajax Knights who worked hard on the ice all weekend long and did a great job at representing the AMHA and OMHA on and off the ice.
GOALIES: Darren Sharman and Aidan Stevens [Series MVP]
DEFENCE: Jeff Carney, Josh Theodor, Osvaldo Araujo, Connor Theriault, Chris Preston, Ryan Sharkey
FORWARDS: Liam Iannarelli, Daniel Spriel, Avery Peart, Jarrod White, Keegan Dillon, Neil Polley, Sam Arbour, Maxwell Maddix, Andrew Gendron, Josh Wright
