Aces Online Banquet Day 6
Submitted By Jan Ballantyne on Monday, April 6, 2020
The Abtron Electric Peewee C Aces had some success this year including winning a tournament in Woodstock, finishing second overall in our league regular season and losing the final of the Stratford tournament in a 4 round shootout. The proudest moment for our team though was the way we played in a tournament in Orangeville.

Without enough teams for a C division, we were asked to play in the B division. We wholeheartedly accepted and viewed this as an opportunity to test ourselves against some great competition. Despite the fact that we didn’t win any games, we managed a tie and a couple of very close losses. The Aces performed well under pressure, twice scoring key goals in the last minute of games. The Aces played with a ton of heart and determination and earned a lot of respect and compliments from the coaches and parents of the B teams. The absolute highlight was the game against Mount Forest, a highly ranked B team. We’ve spend the entire season implementing a very aggressive system of forechecking and puck pursuit that we call “Aces Hockey”. Mount Forest took 6 penalties in that game and struggled to handle the Aces’ pressure. The Aces brought their very best effort of the season and despite a loss, proved that we can play with some great teams.
