Motown Cup Champs
Submitted By Rich Palser on Monday, November 11, 2019
Congrats to the Bantam Aeros MD squad on winning the 2019 Motown Cup Championship this past weekend in Detroit.

We started the round-robin on Friday by losing 4-1 to the 9th ranked team in Ontario, North Toronto, who play in the GTHL A division. It was a tough way to begin the tourney but maybe it was the wake up call our team needed as we followed up with a 4-1 win vs the Humberview Huskies & a 7-1 win vs the Meadowvale Hawks on Saturday. The 2-1 record set us up for a semi-final on Sunday morning vs a solid Burlington Bulldogs (White) squad who currently sit in 3rd place in the Alliance East division. The boys clearly came to play on Sunday and sent the Bulldogs home with a 4-1 win setting us up with a rematch vs North Toronto in the finals. The Championship game was an exciting one filled with end to end action including a penalty shot, multiple breakaways, huge stops by both goaltenders & outstanding efforts from all players on both teams. The Aeros were not going to be denied on this day & held on to a hard fought 2-1 victory over one of the best teams we've seen this year.

Congrats boys we're very proud of your team effort this weekend. You learned what it takes to be Champions & we'll carry that on the rest of our journey together.

Go Aeros!

Coach Rich

    I would like to thank all the players who attended this year's Major Bantam Aeros tryouts. The skill level & effort on display this week make the decision for myself as well as the independent evaluators very difficult.
