This past weekend the Kirkpatrick Stoneworks
Novice Rep BB Panthers team took part in the Beaverloch Tournament in Thorold. They
managed to win a tight game against the Petrolia Oilers 5-4 to start the
The boys struggled in game two losing to Twin Centre 5 -4.
Later that day, the team was highly motivated by the return of defenseman J. Dunn and put in a dominating performance beating Belmont 5-1. The young Panthers were able to carry that momentum into Sunday beating Thorold in the semi-final 7 - 1.
The finals was a rematch against their first opponent of the tournament the Petrolia Oilers. The Panthers controlled the game from the drop of the puck showing a lot of heart and playing great team defense. However, they had two goals called back in the first period and entered the second period tied 0 - 0. The Panthers were able to find the back of the net several times in the second and third finishing the championship game with a 5 - 0 victory.
It was a great team effort! The entire coaching staff is proud of the boys and are looking forward to our next tournament in Fort Erie.
We are ..... PANTHERS!
