January 18 -20 - Team Orange Crush entered the Neil Barker Classic tournament in the Major Atom White B division and literally crushed their competition!
With an outstanding performance by all players, an equal scoring attack, stellar goaltending and only a total of five goals against, the team went undefeated in all five games leading up to the nail biting final.
Team Orange stood at a loss of 1-0 through most of the final game and thought their dreams of the victory were gone. But with the goaltender pulled in the final 2 minutes, Quinn Schmidt flew down the ice to score the tying goal, assisted by Jimmy Bennett and Blake Freer. With only 1:13 left! Mitchell Clarke returned to his net and the teams tried to end the game but neither could score sending the game into overtime.
Both teams battled hard, but again no goals would be scored. It was then on to a shootout. Mitchell Clarke stood tall between the pipes and only one of the six shooters would get one past. Luke West scored second in the shootout and Blake Freer scored the winning goal as the sixth shooter to bring Team Orange Crush to a much deserved Championship Win!. Congratulations to Team Orange Crush!
