Bantam AA USRA Major Tourney Champions!

By Northern Express Hockey, 11/17/11, 9:45AM CST


While all the games for Bantam AA played were very exciting this Championship Game against the Saints was even more so. We played this team the day before, who happened to be on a 14 game winning streak, that is until they played us. When we beat them 5-2, let's just say they were not happy! Many of us wondered how the Saints would approach the championship game and how our boys would approach the game. Since we had to check out of our rooms by noon and the game wasn't until 3:30 we had plenty of time to speculate and we did, down in the middle of the hotel lobby.     
First period nobody scored but we came to play! Second period we scored but we also saw the penality box a few times as did the Saints. The beginning of the third period The Saints score but it only takes us a few minutes to get the lead back. Both teams again visit the penality box more than they should but most of them came at the end of the third.  To secure the deal we get our third goal on an empty net with a minute and a half left in the game. We win the game with a score of 3-1.

Like I said very exciting!
