Die Kitchener Jr Rangers sichern sich mit Samuel den ersten Platz beim BCHL Tournament nach der 10. Runde im shootout!
Kitchener Jr Rangers U18 Select – BCHL Tournament of Friends Champs!
Big Congratulations to the U18 Select team who went 6-0 this past weekend in
Brantford to take home the BCHL Tournament of Friends Championship Banner!
The Jr Rangers were in tough in the final game against a very skilled and fast squad, the
Joran Lions, and found themselves trailing 3-1 with less than 8 minutes to go in the 3rd
period. A marker with 6:05 remaining gave the boys some life, and with 0:43 left, and
with the goalie out, the Jr. Rangers tied things up.
After grueling 3 on 3, 2 on 2, and 1 on 1 overtime periods solved nothing, the
Championship would be decided in a shootout. It took until the 10th round of the
sudden death shootout where we found the back of the net, and got a huge save at our
end to seal the deal. Huge shout out to the goalie duo and defensive group who
combined, gave up only 6 goals throughout the tournament, and our forwards who
provided a balanced attack all weekend, and saw 3 of our skaters in the top 4 in
tournament scoring. Thank you to the BCHL Saints Organization for hosting a great
weekend in Brantford!
,,Das Turnier war einfach Klasse, ich komme immer besser zurecht mit dem schnelleren Spiel auf der kleinen Eisfläche. Der Sieg war wichtig für mich, um in der Mannschaft richtig anzukommen.“
Samuel nach dem Turnier in Brantford.
