2017-2018 AAA - Minor Atom - Minor Atom AAA Take Silver in Hamilton
Submitted By Cody McNaughton on Tuesday, December 05, 2017
The Minor Atom AAA Gryphons headed to “The Hammer” bright and early on Friday morning to participate in the Hamilton Junior Bulldogs Backspin Classic Tournament.    The boys started with a strong win but then stumbled and dropped the next 2 games of the round robin, leaving themselves a tough road ahead.   

Undeterred, the Gryphons won 3 straight elimination games, including knocking out the host Bulldogs in overtime, earning a spot in the finals against Quinte Red Devils. 

The boys fought back from an early 2 goal deficit to take the lead in the 2nd period but couldn’t hold on despite a courageous effort by all. 

Coach Cody, Coach Chad and all the parents are very proud of these 9 year-old boys who went all out and played 7 full length games in 3 days.

Frenchie, Snedds, Micah, Wazzy, Ryder, Keane, Shifty, Newts, Ryan, Cavs, Wheels, Jack, Hainesy, Hunter, Batts, J-Dog and Seth….what an amazing effort to reach the finals in the way you did and something to build on for the rest of the year.
