MD - Novice 3 - 2017 Bob Stark Novice Classic Champions
Submitted By Scott Wain on Monday, November 13, 2017
A big Congrats to all the players for an incredible weekend!  Their hard work and determination was rewarded with a tournament win!  

We started the tournament off with a game bright and early at 7:30am against the Cambridge Hawks.  The early start didn't phase the team.  We couldn't have asked for a better start when we found ourselves up 1 - 0 only 21 seconds into the game.  The Aeros pressure proved to be too much for the Hawks taking game 1 with final score of 9 - 1.  

Game 2 was set later Saturday afternoon against the high flying Leaside Flames.  Since both teams won their respective first games, the outcome of this one would determine who finished atop of the division. It was a pretty tight battle for most of the game. A surge of offence mid game really put things out of reach for the Flames.  The Aeros took this one with a final score of 7 - 2. 

The stage was now set for a semi final game on Sunday morning agains the North York Knights.  The Knights came through their division finishing in 2nd place. So, we knew we needed a good start with lots of pressure to keep them at bay.  The Aeros played 3 solid periods and kept constant pressure on the Knights and came out of the semis with a dominating 7 - 0 victory.  

Getting the job done winning their semi final as the 1st place seed was the Kitchener Rangers.   A heavy weight match up was set for the finals with both the Rangers and Aeros having only lost 1 other game all season long. This was going to be our toughest test of the tournament.   The Aeros had steadily been building their solid team play and relentless puck pressure throughout the tournament.  The team did not disappoint with a hard fought battle earning the Championship title with a final score of 5 - 1. 

Congrats Aeros!
