3 Teams win Canadian Tire Classic Championships
Submitted By Jill Robertson on Tuesday, December 2, 2014
3 BMHA teams won championships at the Canadian Tire Classic Tournament Nov. 28 - 30th.  Congratulations to Minor Atom AE, Minor Atom A and Minor Peewee A!

Minor Atom AE
The Barrie Colts Minor Atom AE team won the Canadian Tire Classic Tournament in one of the most thrilling Finals ever. The team packaged the skills, preparation and focus they had learned since August and put together the best six games they had ever played together. Playing against some of the strongest competition in the Province, they peaked during this tournament and in their six wins, scored an impressive 23 goals, allowed only 6 on the strength of 3 shout-outs from their goaltending tandem.

In the final game against the Kitchener Jr. Rangers, the Colts found themselves in unfamiliar territory, being down most of the game. A quick goal by the Rangers had the Colts trailing 1-0 early. The boys tied the score before the end of the first period. The teams exchanged second period goals and entered the third tied at two goals apiece. After a few bad bounces and although carrying most of the play, the Colts were down 4-2 with six minutes left in the third period. As the Colts have done on numerous occasions before, their conditioning, grit and determination allowed them to score two goals in the next four minutes to tie the score.

Four minutes into a very one-sided overtime and after a Colts disallowed goal, the Barrie squad finally put the winning goal by an overwhelmed Kitchener goaltender.  Great team effort, great preparation, great focus by all. 

​Minor Peewee A
This past weekend, The Barrie Colts Secure Contracting and Renovations Minor Peewee A team took part in Barrie’s Canadian Tire Classic hockey tournament.  The team opened the tournament against the Dundas Blues.  Within the first four minutes of the game the Colts had jumped out to an early 4-0 lead.  The Blues switched their goaltender and although the Colts outshot them 38-15 the Blues had shut the door on any further scoring.  Colts were able to hang on and win the game 4-3.

Game two saw the Colts take on Toronto Ted Reeve Thunder.  The Colts had just defeated the Thunder three weeks earlier in the Silver Stick Qualifier Championship game and knew they were in for a battle.  But the hard working, no quit Colts were able to take down the Thunder by a final score of 4-2.  Games three and four saw the Colts defeat the Owen Sound Jr Attack by a score of 4-2 and the Orangeville Flyers by a score of 4-3.  The Barrie Colts 4-0 record gave them the number one seed heading into the semi-finals and another date with the Orangeville Flyers.

In the semi-finals the Colts made no mistake in letting the hometown fans know they wanted a seat at the Championship table as they handed the Flyers a sound 6-2 loss.  The semi-final victory allowed the Colts to face the Owen Sound Jr. Attack in the Championship final.

The final game saw the Colts jump out to an early 1-0 lead that they carried into the second period.  The Colts scored another only to see their two goal lead evaporate midway through the second as the Attack gained momentum and tied the game at two.  Both teams exchanged one more goal each.  With time winding down in the second and the teams tied at 3-3 it appeared the final frame was going to decide it all.  But a late goal with 11 seconds remaining seemed to break the spirits of the Attack as the Colts grabbed a 4-3 lead.  In the final period it was all Colts as their relentless attack style hockey wore down Owen Sound.  In the end the Barrie Colts were crowned champions with a convincing 6-4 victory and win the 2014 Canadian Tire Classic Minor Peewee A division hockey tournament.

Minor Atom A
The Larway Transportation Barrie Minor Atom A won the Canadian Tire Classic Tournament hosted locally in Barrie between November 28th and  November 30th.  

The Team went undefeated throughout the tournament with a final record  of 5-0 and out scoring their opponents 23-3.  Collectively,  the boys played their finest hockey of the season dominating the opposing teams from Pickering, Brantford and London and proceeded through their first 3 games giving up only one goal and advancing to the semi-finals. 

A victory against Pickering once again in the semi's and shutting out their opponent 4-0,  gave the team some additional confidence going into the finals. 

In the finals, the determined Barrie Colts players entered the 3rd period with a 3-0 lead,  fending off a late rally by a pesky Brantford 99'ers team.  Barrie hung on for the victory winning 4-2,  proudly winning the home town tournament.  The players look to build on their tournament success this weekend as they travel to Detroit, Michigan for the Motown Cup Classic.
