Tires Lose Ayr as Hot Streak Ends For Bantam BB...
Submitted By OSGH on Sat 03 07, 20
The Owen Sound Bantam BB Ice Hawks have been playing some great hockey as of late after winning their first round series with the Kitchener Lady Rangers they went down to the Walter Gretzky Tournament in Brantford to start up game #1 with the Barrie Sharks and won 2 to 0.

Alyssa Barnard would get the shutout making 8 saves as OS out shot Barrie 21 to 8.

Chesney Miller would open the scoring in the first with a nice pass form Kenzie Falls and Lyndsay Cumming drawing the other assist.  Natalie Madill would score in the 2nd from Charlotte Green.

Game #2 saw Owen Sound play the Flamborough Falcons and again won 2 to 0.

Sophia Fuller made 12 saves as Flamborough out shot Owen Sound 12 to 8 in the contest.

Jolie Mcknight would score in the first with a beautiful pass from Julia Sutherland from behind the net and Mary Green would get the other assist.                                                                                                                    Keirsten Henrich would score in the 3rd on the rush with nice passes from Cecily Mallette to Julia Sutherland to Henrich to close off the victory!

Game #3 saw the Ice Hawks plat the Sudbury Lady Wolves and win 4 to 0.

Alyssa Barnard would again shut the door making 8 saves on route to the shutout win as Owen Sound out shot Sudbury 21 to 8.

Chesney Miller scored in the first with Kenzie Falls assisting.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Maggie Harvey would score on a breakaway a minute later with Heather Koch getting the assist on the play.

Mary Green would get a pair in the 3rd for the blue line with her first one coming from Cecily Mallette  and her 2nd one from Maggie Harvey.

Game #4 saw the girls play the St Catherines Brock Jr Badgers and again win 2 to 0.

Sophia Fuller would again get the shutout stopping just 6 pucks as OS out shot St Catherines 23 to 6.

Kenzie Falls would open the scoring in the first with assists going to Chesney Miller and Lyndsay Cumming and then Chesney Miller would score in the 3rd off a beautiful pass from Kenzie Falls and Mary Green getting the other assist from her own end.

So this set up a championship final with the Barrie Sharks.

Alyssa Barnard was stellar as she stopped 10 pucks on route to a 0 to 0 score after regulation.  The final would be determined by 3 on 3 Over Time and Barrie would capitalize on a bounce and win 1 to 0.Barnard made 1 save in OT but couldn't reach the rebound.

So this set up Series #2 with the Ayr Rockets who are currently ranked 5th in the Province and have produced fine hockey games all season long with the Ice Hawks.

Owen Sound won the season series winning twice 2 to 0 and one tie 0 to 0 but the overall shots were 52 to 46 in a slight edge for OS.

So game #1 got snowed out in Ayr with the ugly storm Friday Feb 28th, so it was played in Owen Sound on Saturday Feb 29th at the Julie MacArthur Rec Center and Owen sound would finish with a 2 to 0 win.

Owen Sound scored in the first on a goal from Kenzie Falls who would tip a point shot and then get her own rebound to draw first blood with Renayla Campbell and Chesney Miller getting the assists.

Jolie Mcknight would score 21 seconds later on a wrap around with assists going to Julia Sutherland and Cecily Mallette.

Sophia Fuller would get the  victory and 4th shutout of the season vs the Rockets stopping 11 shots as Ayr out shot OS 11 to 10 in the tight checking affair.

So that set up a day trip to Ayr the next day for possibly a pair of games or even an Overtime & shootout in the 4 pt series if things were tied up as the series had to be done that day!    The tough part was that the flu bug had set in on the blue line that week and then again over night and this effected the teams lineup for the long day.

Ayr opened the scoring just 9 seconds into the first game on a giveaway but Julia Sutherland would tie it up with 4 minutes left in the 1st with Jolie Mcknight and Keirsten Henrich drawing the assists.

Ayr would get a questionable power play with 2 minutes and 12 seconds left in the game, and would score with just 21 seconds left to win 2 to 1 in a heartbreaker.

Ayr out shot OS again 17 to 16 as Sophia Fuller made 15 saves in the loss.

So game #3 just 2 hours later saw Julia Sutherland score on a fantastic shot to put the Ice Hawks ahead after period 1. Jolie Mcknight had a sweet behind the back pass to Sutherland after getting it from Cecily Mallette.

Ayr would tie it up late in the 2nd on the power play as a wide shot from the point went off traffic and changed directions. Ayr wouls score again with just over a minute left in the 2nd.

So in the 3rd, Ayr would score again on the power play and ice the series with an eventual 3 to 1 victory knocking the Ice Hawks out of Lower Lakes Hockey League playoffs and advancing to the Championship series with the Waterloo Ravens.

Sophia Fuller took the loss making 10 saves as Ayr again out shot OS 16 to 13.

It was a tough way to lose a series but that's hockey sometimes, adversity & experience makes you stronger and The Rockets played exceptional hockey!

So the hot streak ends for the Bantram BB Ice Hawks with 9 straight regulation game shutouts and 29 straight regulation periods of no goals allowed - out scoring their opponents 18 to 0 in that stretch!!

The Ice Hawks are off this weekend but will regroup and participate in the Toronto Leaside Wild Cats hockey tournament March 13th to 15th.  The girls will play the Pittsburgh Steel City Selects on Friday and then 2 different Toronto Leaside Wildcats teams in round robin Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.  

Then the North York Storm A team #3005 will come to Flesherton Sunday March 22nd at 3:30pm to play an exhibition game to prepare for Provincials April 3rd to the 5th in Toronto.

Good Luck Girls!!
