TFS P-BB Aces win gold at the "Fire on the Ice" Tourny
Submitted By Mike Rolph on Sunday, November 3, 2019
The Taylor Fluid Systems Peewee BB Aces attended the Fire on the Ice tournament this weekend in Rochester New York; taking the slogan to heart, they were just that, the Fire on the Ice!  Not only taking home the gold but out shooting their competition 6.5:1 in the six games they played throughout the tournament. The first four games were a little one sided as well as a bit of a learning curve as there are some different rules in the US then what the girls and coaches are use to in Canada Eh. However, the coaches found the silver lining and had the girls focused and working on their D to D passing and regrouping skills in all zones.

Round robin play ended with every player being in the plus and each goalie having at least one shutout; a complete team effort. After some belated trick or treating within the hotel on Saturday evening it was time to get serious for super Sunday. The Semi Final seen the TFS Aces facing Stoney Creek on Sunday morning. Stoney Creek was quicker than the previous teams we had faced thus far and it took the Aces a couple shifts to get their feet back under them, but when they did there was no stopping them. Using their refined passing from the previous games the Aces had no problem moving the puck around the Stoney Creek team to eventually taking the victory 3-1. Two of the goals scored by Josephine Jarmuth (one short handed) and the other scored by Paige Campbell assisted by Jarmuth. The Tournament Finals was against Mississauga Hurricanes who were undefeated and had zero gaols against for the tournament. The TFS Aces knew this was going to be a battle, but were up for the challenge. Even thou the score appeared to be a little lopsided this was an excellent game by both teams. The pace was quick from the first puck drop to the last buzzer. Both teams were hungry for the win being as aggressive as they could trying not to get thrown in the box. The scoring started not even two minutes into the game with the Hurricanes striking first. Now the Aces knew they had to get their legs moving. Two minutes and sixteen seconds later Jarmuth scored her first of an eventual three of the game. She was fed a beauty of a pass from Kylie Fifield, Jarmuth skated the puck to her favorite shooting spot and ripped one past the left ear of the Hurricanes goalie to tie us at one a piece. That line wasn’t done yet. A couple shifts later Paige Campbell buried the eventual game winner through the five hole of the gaolie from a pass from Ella Taylor. To round the period off, Aveleen Flood got her first of three as well with a sweet goal, the puck was on its end and Floody was in tight to the net and she used that to her advantage lifting the puck into the top corner for the insurance goal. The second period scoring was all Floody, she got one three minutes into the period, Floody walked the puck out from the corner, waiting the goalie out with some good patience to put the biscuit in to the back of the net. Her second of the period, third of the game was with only twenty seconds left Floody had control of the puck in tight, again seeing an open side and with a quick stick handle she maneuvered the puck to the open side and put the puck home to finish her hat trick. That finished the second period off Aces up 5-1. The Hurricanes we not giving up, still battling getting some quality shots on Sloan but she was a wall, denying everything that came her way. The third period was Jarmuth’s turn to get her hat trick. The first of the period was nothing short of a reward from hard work. Devan Taylor passed the puck up in front of Jarmuth who had to leg out two Hurricane players to catch the puck and with a hard back hand she put it through the five hole. Her third of the game was a scrum in front of the net, Jarmuth shooting through all the shin pads to beat the goalie giving her the hat trick and the Aces a comfortable lead. The game ended with a 7-1 victory to win the gold. Congratulations Girls and Coaches!! The team improvement from start of the tournament to the final game was excellent to see.
