The team showed immense selflessness on the ice this tournament. Head Coach Chris Stevenson adds that “every player played for the logo on the front. It didn’t matter who scored, they all supported each other and cared about the team’s success first and foremost. The special thing about this team is they realize a shot block or a great back check are just as important as a big save or scoring a goal.”
However, this tournament was not without its challenges. The team had to fight through tough competition and even found themselves trailing behind 4-2 late in the second period while playing in the quarter-finals against hometown rivals, the Mississauga Reps. “The team never quit and tied the game late in the 3rd and followed that up by scoring the game winning goal the very next shift” Stevenson adds.
The Minor Peewee’s are currently sitting in 1st place in the GTHL standings with an overall record of 49-1-2. It has been an incredibly special season for the Minor Peewee’s and are now planning to continue strong in the second half of the season and prepare for playoffs coming up. Coach Stevenson adds that they are currently trying to win the Kraft Cup (1st place in the regular season) and that “as a coaching staff we couldn’t be prouder of this group of young men, they earn everything they get and we hope their adversity and determination continues as we come to the final stretch run of the season”.
The Mississauga Senators organization would like to congratulate the Minor Peewee’s on all their #SENSational achievements this season. Go Sens Go!
