Clarington stands in the way of Peewee Rockhounds title
by Randy Pascal

The Sudbury Peewee Rockhounds overcame all but the Clarington Gaels at a weekend tournament in Oshawa, claiming silver medals at the “Braver than Brave Memorial Tournament” in memory of Tucker Williams.

The local peewees displayed little weariness in taking the final game of Friday’s schedule against the host Oshawa Blue Knights #2 (12-3), and coming right back in the early morning Saturday opener versus the Brampton Exelsiors (11-2).

Clearly on a roll, the Rockhounds dismantled the Whitby Warriors 9-4, before suffering their only loss of round robin play, an 8-7 setback at the hands of the Clarington Gaels. A Sunday morning semi-final proved to be somewhat lopsided, as Sudbury downed Oshawa 8-1, before falling to the Gaels for a second time, 7-5 in the Peewee final.

The Bantam Rockhounds, meanwhile, got as far as the semi-finals in a highly competitive grouping of teams, posting a preliminary round record of 2-1-1. Coach Benoit Douillette and company were edged 5-4 by Brampton in game one, but bounced back with a vengeance, posting a 12-3 triumph over the Kingston Krossfire.

Back to the neck and neck affairs, as the Sudbury crew closed out pool play with a 5-5 tie with the Oshawa Blue Knights #1 and a 5-3 win over the Northumberland Nemesis. Facing the Exelsiors with a spot in the gold medal game on the line, the Bantam Rockhounds came up just a little short, beaten 3-1 by Brampton.

The Sudbury Novice Rockhounds continue to gain valuable experience, despite posting an 0-4 record in Oshawa. Their weekend included defeats at the hands of the Oshawa Blue Knights #2 (9-3), St Catharines Athletics (8-3), Guelph Regals (6-2) and Oakville Hawks (10-4).
