ATOM AA WHITE - CONSTELLATION PLAYOFF CHAMPS
Submitted By Darrel Elver on Tuesday, March 26, 2019
Congratulations Team we are This Year's Atom AA Constellation Playoff Champs
What a season, after finishing 3rd overall, we entered into the Playoffs to Face The Sarnia Jr. Sting.


We battled hard against them the whole series, finally losing in game 7 2-1.  Next came The Stafford Warriors, in which the boys when back to work outscoring their opponent 13-5 over three games. This put us on a collision course with The Brantford 99er's to battle for the Constellation Playoff Championship. 

After tying our first game 1-1, the boys new they had to dig deeper to achieve the end goal.  The next game saw the two teams play hard with our boys earning a 4-2 Win.  Not to be outdone, game 3 saw Brantford start fast and hard, again our guys dug in and out-dulled them winning 6-3.  We were now in control - 5-1 Points, playing the close out game.  They guys still feeling the sting a bit from losing the close out game against Sarnia, went on a mission.  The game was back and forth with Brantford scoring the first goal against us during a 5-3 power play. The team dug in again killing of the 5-4 pp, and then kept the pressure on, finally scoring the tying goal on a great three way passing play. 

The teams were tied 1-1 at the end of regulation-both teams bringing on Overtime!

LJK started fast gained the zone and almost scored, but Brantford came storming back but could not beat the team defense.  As the clock ran down, the boys pinned Brantford in their end for almost 1 minute.  But it was not over, Brandtord was able to clear their zone; pulling their goalie to be 6-5 for the last 30 or so seconds of the game. Again the boys dug in fighting right to the end to claim their victory!  They had just become the CHAMPS!

Boys be proud of yourselves and your accomplishments.  Treasurer the friends that you have made, and the memories that you have created!

On behalf of my entire Coaching Staff thank you for a great season.  As a team we went 6-0-1 in our final 7 games outscoring our opponents 25-12.

CONGRATULATIONS BOYS WE GOT THIS DONE!

Coach D
