TFS P-BB Lose in Semis in a game of inches
Submitted By Mike Rolph on Sunday, November 24, 2019
The Taylor Fluids Systems Peewee BB’s represented the Aces this weekend at the Fallfest tournament in Kitchener. After round robin play the Aces were 1-1-1 with 8 GF and 4 GA which had them third in their respective pool. The quarters seen the Aces against Mississauga Chiefs. This was the same team the Aces played in the Finals at the Rochester Tournament three weeks prior which seen the Aces defeat the Chiefs 7-1; this game was going to be much different.

Both teams were playing to advance in the tournament, however, the Chiefs had a point to prove. From the drop of the puck the game was fast paced with both teams moving the puck well on the big ice, backchecking, and battling hard. Both goalies were on their game however, through shear aggressiveness and grit Katie Helson managed to find the chink in the Chiefs goalies armour. Helson swooped into the offensive zone tracked the puck down in the corner, maintained control and shot a hard-back hander to the front of the net that took a perfect bounce directly through the five hole to give the Aces the lead and the eventual game winner. The star of the show was the Aces’ goalie, Sloan Cameron who made some awesome saves keeping the Aces in the game, including a beautiful save on a breakaway late in the third period. Cameron came way out of the net to challenge the Chiefs player, she had her angles perfectly cut giving the shooter little to no shot, at about the hash marks she took her shot, hard on the ice, Cameron made a beauty of a kick save and then another from the rebound to get a whistle. Cameron continued to make these key saves - 15 in total - to earn the shutout and give the Aces the win.

 

The semi finals would take place early Sunday morning against Oshawa Lady Generals; the same team we tied on Friday (2-2) as well as the eventual tournament champions. This game was a nail bitter; fast paced and hard fought till the bitter end. Oshawa opened the scoring four minutes into the first and that’s the way it would remain until four minutes into the third when Josephine Jarmuth pick the puck up in the neutral zone, she deked around the pair of defence and took the shot from the hashmarks to beat the goalie five hole and tie the game at one a piece. The game ended 1-1 and it was time for some OT; five minutes of 3 on 3 excitement. The TFS Aces dominated the OT play. We had multiple chances that missed by mere inches and just didn’t have the puck luck to finish the game. OT ended without a winner. We are now into the shootout; best 2 out of 3 to start. The Aces lost the shoot out after the first two shooters. Not a good way to lose such a hard-fought game. Until next time Oshawa….
