Atom Rep Wins Alvinston Silver Stick!
Submitted By Brian Jubenville on Thursday, January 3, 2019
For the first time, an East Lambton Eagles team has won the Alvinston Atom Silver Stick! The first game on Thursday saw the Eagles play Six Nations Blackhawks, and the Eagles came out flying, winning 6-1.  Player of the game was Cooper Aarts with some sweet shooting with his new stick to get a hat trick.




Game two on Friday had the Eagles playing the Seaforth Stars and we again came out strong.  In the end, we won with a score of 12-0. The Eagles played well and didn't stray from the game plan staying very focused.  Player of the game was Jared Migchels with a strong game on the wing.

In game three on Saturday, we played one of our biggest rivals, the North Middlesex Jr. Stars.  The Eagles battled through three very tough periods to prevail with a 3-0 win. Player of the game was our goalie Tanner Wilson who had several game saving stops and recorded another shutout.

Sunday Funday had us in the semifinals against the Aylmer Flames and fans got their money's worth from this game!  This was a fantastic battle and after the game several fans said it was the best game they had seen in years. The hockey moms disagreed as their nerves were shot after the game.  The Eagles never gave up in this one and battled back after each Aylmer goal to tie it up. The Eagles never held a lead in regulation time and were down 4-3 with less than a minute left in the third period and the goalie pulled, Samuel Russel Hayter came through (as he always does) to tie it up.  After playing a 5 minute 4 on 4 overtime with no scoring, we went to a 3 on 3, 5 minute overtime. Overtime hero Nathan Leyten netted the game winner on a rebound from a Ryan McLachlin point shot. Player of the game was Nathan Letyen. This stressful game took several years off the coaching staffs lives for sure.

The Sunday finals were against another rival, the Belmont Rangers.  This back and forth game had both teams playing hard and getting chances, but the goalies stood tall.  It wasn't until the second period that the Eagles were able to break open the scoring, netting two beauties past a very strong Belmont netminder.  We held on in the third period to win. Player of the game was Sam Hayter.

After accepting the championship banner with Sam Hayter, Ryan McLachlin, and Hunter Mitchell, an excited Ryan Bork was happy to learn he had been selected as the tournament MVP...well-deserved for sure. The Eagles played a hard-fought tournament against some great teams and over 5 games had an incredible 28 goals for and only 5 goals against (including 3 shutout games).  Each player contributed to the success of the team and the coaches couldn't be more proud of the determination and tenacity that the players showed during this tournament.. It was a well deserved team victory....way to go champs!
