Plattsville Novice LL Champions - Ayr Hockey Challenge
Submitted By Tina Balfour on Wednesday, March 27, 2019
The Plattsville Novice LL team had their final tournament of the season this past weekend, just up Highway 97 in Ayr.   

On Friday, the Rage faced off with a familiar opponent, the Embro Edge, in their first game of the tournament. Plattsville made the most of their opportunities, posting a strong 3-1 victory.  Later on Friday afternoon, the Rage team faced an unfamiliar team the South Huron Sabres.  In a back and forth battle featuring great chances and even better goaltending, the game ended in a hard fought 1-1 tie.  

On Saturday, the Rage squad had one game, against the host Ayr Flames.  The boys were able to capitalize quick and held on for a final score of 4-0.  This opened the door for the Semi-Final game on Sunday morning, once again against the Ayr Flames. The Ayr side came out hungry, but the Rage were able to take the W with a 5-1 final score and earn a spot in the Championship game.

With a couple hours off to rest up, the boys hung out at the arena and watched some hockey together as a team. In the Championship game, the Plattsville Rage team faced off once more with the South Huron Sabres. Both sides knew that it wasn’t going to be a ‘walk in the park’ and would require nothing less than their best efforts. In the first period, the Rage took an early 1-0 lead, but shortly into the second period the Sabres tied the game 1-1, before going up 2-1 just a few minutes later.  After briefly tying the game up at 2, the Sabres pushed back again, taking a 4-2 lead heading into the third period.  With a little over 11 minutes to go in the third period, a timeout was called by Coach Lance to give the boys a pep talk, to get them back in the game. Goalie Davis was standing on his head, keeping the deficit at just 2.  Following the timeout, the defense and offense that we’ve become accustomed to, were back. They stepped up their game once more, getting back to what has made them successful as a team. The third period belonged to Plattsville, with a huge 4 goal outburst, and making the final buzzer sound with the scoreboard showing 6-4, in favor of the Rage squad.  The Rage players all jumped on the ice and celebrated their big team win.

A huge shout out to the players effort and dedication all weekend, along with their #1 fans who cheered them on. Boys, remember: “Be better today than you were yesterday”.
