The North York Rangers Minor Atom AAA team embarked on their 1st away tournament of the season as a part of the Niagara North Stars tournament in St.Catherines, The tournament included many teams from the OMHA and the US and the host Niagara team did a great job all weekend. The team overcame some adversity being down 4-2 in the quarter final game and clawed back for a 5-4 win. They played the Southern Tier Admirals in the semi finals, the same team they tied in the round robin and after a slow first period, broke away to win 8-1. In a Cinderella story, NYR was to play the host Niagara team in the finals (the only team without a blemish on their record) and right off the hop, goaltender Abbey Petro was determined to backstop this win with a few spectacular saves and the offence fed off that scoring 6 straight goals after being down 2-1. A decisive 6 goal win (7-1) and NYR has their 1st tournament victory as a team!
