Aeros MB #27 Undefeated Champs!
Submitted By John Meulendyks on Sunday, January 17, 2016
The weekend of January 15-17 the Minor Bantam Aeros #27 played in the Neil Barker Memorial Tournament hosted by the London Bandits organization.

From the drop of the puck in the first game to the final buzzer in the championship game the boys were ready to play!
Game #1 saw the Aeros cruise to an easy victory over an overwhelmed Oakville team, the final being 8-2.
That would be the only lopsided victory of the weekend.
Game #2 was a hard fought battle against a really good Newmarket team.  A back and forth contest saw Oakridge come out with a 6-4 win.
Game #3 was a contest between two undefeated teams. The Aeros worked hard to come out with a 4-2 win and remain undefeated, securing a bye to the Sunday morning semi finals.

Sunday the boys would not be denied.

Game #4 had the boys playing another tough team from Newmarket.  The fight was on from the first face off, and the team ground out a 3-0 win.

In the final the boys saved their best for last, playing our toughest competition of the tournament. The Burlington Avalanche were all the Aeros could handle.  Against a team with excellent defence the boys remained patient and were able to gain a 1-0 lead with 1:09 remaining in the second period.  With a tremendous team effort including great goaltending, perfect defence and every single forward putting defence first we were able to hold on for a 1-0 championship win.

The team bought into the weekend focus of every player being an MVP and were rewarded with the championship trophy for their efforts.

Congratulations Aeros!
