2004 Milton Winterhawks Championship

Congratulations to the Milton Winterhawks Atom MD team

Positive reinforcement, team building exercises and  focusing on having lots of fun put our Winterhawks Atom MD team in a great position at the end of the season and heading into the playoffs the team was starting to peak.  Our boys secured a spot in the finals by earning 2nd place in the playoff round robin and their focus quickly shifted to the Championship game and their opponent, the Orangeville Flyers. 

The boys knew they had their work cut out for them as they were missing one of their top scorers, Ethan Oliveira. AP Kegan Cerna was called up to fill the void and did a great job while picking up an assist. Thomas ‘Smiles’Horn was also chipped in to provide support for the team after being called up as the backup goaltender.  

From the drop of the puck our boys took the fight to the Flyers and proceeded to pick them apart and shut them down. Orangeville's big shooter #77 was held in check from the start of the game by Billy Riatt, Kieran Jeffry and Evan Grigor and the 'Hawks were able to open the scoring in the first period asVishnu Chelliah bulged the twine assisted by Nicholaus Schafhauser and Ashton West.  Minutes later, Caleb Emmons found the back of the net with another assist by Nicholaus S for a 2-0 early lead.  Then, just as the period was about to end Matthew Stefanov scored with assists from Kieran Jeffery and Caleb to make it 3-0 for Milton over Orangeville.  

 The 2nd period was full of action, including a break away by the feared Flyers' #77.  The crowd held their breath as his shot sailed towards the top corner, only to be denied by Adam Lauder when he came out to challenge the shooter and take away the scoring chance. 

The 'Hawks came out flying in the third period and had total control of the game.  Great defensive work by all of the D - Noah Mason, Eric Marsh, Ryan Peckham, Will Merwin, Kegan C and Nicholaus S kept the pressure on the Flyers.  The finishing touch was put on when Nathan Bernicky popped in the 4th goal with just minutes left in the game assisted by Andreas Kioussis and Eric Marsh. 

The victory is also shared with AP's Ben Dapat and Matthew Fletcher who were key assets during the season.  

Congratulations to Adam Lauder who was solid in the pipes and secured a shut out for the team and was named player of the game.  

The Final score in a great team effort was Milton Winterhawks 4  Orangeville Flyer 0 

The Winterhawks would like to congratulate the Orangeville Flyers for being a tough opponent all year and for making it the the Championship game.
