Championship Sunday – Oct 16th, 2016

We started off the gold medal game today against Kapuskasing, whom we had previously beat on Friday. The tall Ice Hawks were hungry for a win against us and definitely came to play. Alex A. played well today skating hard, back checking and got us on the score board first with a rush to the net. Our defence were tough against the boards and striped the puck from the opponents on many occasions. Kap came back to tie the score at 1. Owen played a great game and froze the puck well, keeping it safe and slowing down the pace when needed. Josh gave William K. a nice pass and #26 fired it past the goalie! We ended the second period tied 2-2. The Ice Hawks won the face off to start the 3rd period and scored taking the lead for the first time in the game 3-2. Jesse stick handled his way around the opponents and scored a nice goal, top corner to tie the game 3-3. Again, I saw some nice passes and our players looking for an opportunity to pass to a teammate. I also noticed that the forwards were in position in front of Kap’s net ready for that pass from the corner when we were in their end, and that we are all getting the hang of off-sides. There were at least 3 rushes today when I noticed our forwards being very careful of that blue line and adjusting their strides to wait for the puck carrier. Good job guys. Overall we were just a little over confident coming out of yesterday’s games and we seemed to have lost our energy. All of our boys tried hard but ultimately we were out skated and weren’t hungry enough to win. The final score was 6-3 and it was a tough loss. We will all learn from this and be better next time.
I think we were all good sports this weekend winning gracefully and it is just as important to lose with the same attitude. Congratulations Ice Hawks on your win today.
Overall, a fun weekend of hockey. Congratulations Miron-Wilson North Stars on your first tournament!
See you Tuesday night!

We started off our first game today against the Kiwanis Falcons with a nice pass from Alex B over to Jesse to get us first on the score board. William K. was strong on the face offs and Griffin received a beauty pass to put another point on the board for team Miron-Wilson. After the second period and the scoreboard was a bit lopsided in our favour, we decided to swap some players up and moved some of the forwards and defence men around. This would give the kids a chance to try a different position and have some fun. We asked that they also make an extra effort to pass to their team mates and make sure to play their positions. Brody made no mistake and found the back of the net while Sam and William B were close on a few occasions.
In our second match-up today we took on the Cochrane Megabytes. One of the things the coaches have talked to the players about is to always do their best, whatever their own best is as everyone’s is different. Today I saw a lot of “bests” improve as everyone was trying their hardest. Josh, Kane and Alex B. showed me that they can explode off their skates when they are hungry for the puck and Alex A. was back checking hard. It was great to see the heads up passing between teammates. Anderson gave #87 a nice pass and Josh scored his first novice goal! William K. gave Kane a beauty pass which just narrowly missed the post and Jesse passed over to Anderson who fired one to the back of the net.
Our goal tender Owen stayed focused and ready during both games today which is hard to do sometimes when you’re not seeing much action. Well done Owen!
All the coaches noticed a huge improvement from Friday’s game to this afternoon’s game as the wingers played their positions well, including being ready for the puck with two hands on their sticks in front of the opponents net.
I think the highlight for me today, happened off the ice after our last game. I met Sam in the lobby and he had a smile ear to ear on his face. Jesse received 2 MVP todays and decided to give one of his awards to his teammate. What a kind gesture.
You boys make me proud. Keep up the good work!
Holy Cow! - We're off to a great start!

The first game of the tournament was up against the local Holy Cow! Timmins North Stars. Although I was not there, I heard that the boys played great - skating hard after the puck, back checking, passing and working together as a team! William Kelly was on fire and scored the first 3 goals of the game! By the time the game was done he had scored a total of 5. Way to go MVP #26! Anderson, Brody and Jesse each added a goal to make the score 8-0. Owen was stellar between the pipes and recorded a shutout.
Our second game was up against the Kapuskasing Ice Hawks. Right from the start it felt like it was going to be a good game. The Miron-Wilson North Stars held their ground and protected our zone. Our defensive crew of Sam, Alex A, William B and Brody were digging hard after the puck and trying their best to hold the blue line. Anderson got us on the score board first with a bar down. Nicely done MVP! Jesse battled hard to score us our second goal but the Ice Hawks came back with a nice shot to make it 2-1. Josh, Kane and Alex B did a great job playing their positions and were ready in front of the net on many occasions. Although we were shorthanded in the second period, Anderson was able to tuck one away with his second goal of the night. An unfortunate play pushed the puck into our net to make the score 3-2 and bring the Ice Hawks within a goal. Owen brushed it off and stood tall between the pipes playing well. William K skated hard throughout the game and finished off the day with an empty netter to make the final 4-2.
I am noticing that our players are improving each time they step on the ice. That tells me that they are working hard both at practice and during games. Let’s keep working on our off-sides and playing our positions. Keep up the good work boys!
