AA - Minor PeeWee - Minor Peewee AA Bound For OMHA Quarter Finals
Submitted By Bruce Schlitt on Monday, February 4, 2019
The Gryphon Minor Peewee AA's are off to the OMHA Quarter Finals after a convincing 7-1 victory over the Orangeville Flyers on Monday night.   The win left the Gryphons with a 7-1 record in divisional play,  good enough for 1st place and a ticket to the Quarter Finals.

The Gryphons took charge off the game right off the bat with two goals in the first 90 seconds of play and never looked back.  Ryder Burns set the tone 1:01 into the contest with he took a pass from Oscar Johnson on the wing and cut hard to the net and lifted a shot over the Flyer netminder's shoulder to get the Gryphs on the board.  25 seconds later, defenseman Xander Speakman pinched in at the Flyer blueline and directed a shot on net.   Speakman's shot was blocked but he picked up his own rebound and blasted it into the net for a 2-0 lead.   Guelph added another marker with 27 seconds left in the period when Zac Conroy rushed the puck deep into the Flyer zone and slid a cross crease pass onto the stick of Matthew Stam who slid the puck into the open cage and sent Guelph into the first intermission with a 3-0 lead.

Guelph would add three more goals in the second and a single tally in the third to skate way with a 7-1 victory.

Guelph will now advance to face Burlington Gold in the next round of the OMHA.  Go Gryphies!
