Minor Atom AA - CAN/AM Youth Challenge Cup Silver Medalists!
Submitted By Webmaster on Monday, November 14, 2016
The Minor Atom AA Redmen participated in the Can/Am Youth Challenge Cup in Montreal this past weekend.  The boys faced some tough competition as the Atom division included three U.S. Tier 1 AAA teams. 
The team overcame this challenge and brought home a well-deserved Silver medal. The Redmen started the tournament with a 3-2 loss to the Connecticut Junior Rangers but won their remaining round-robin games which led them to face Connecticut one more time in the Gold medal game. 

The Redmen beat Dual State Riverhawks 6-0,  Richmond Hill Stars 5-1, and Boston Junior Terriers 4-2 in round robin play.
 
In the Gold medal game the boys were challenged as the referees called a number of questionable penalties.  The Redmen had 12 minutes in minors and were down 2-0.  They never gave up and responded with a goal in the 2nd period.  A Gold medal was not meant to be, but the boys showed great pride in taking Silver with a 2-1 loss.
 
The boys had the opportunity to participate in a skills competition (shoot-out and 4-man relay) – and we showed the Atom division how it’s done.  Owen Marshall competed in the shoot-out competition as a goaltender and took 3rd place.  Well done Owen!  

Congratulations to Riley Fisher who won the shoot-out competition by beating out a player from the Dual State Riverhawks effortlessly.  Fisher scored 3 of 3 in the final round and took a commanding victory against his opponents!
 
Representing the Redmen for the relay competition were Nathan Duchaine, Ben Levick, Evan Snyder, and Cameron Matys, who raced to the finish line a third of a lap ahead of the competition to bring home the victory. Way to go boys! 
 
The biggest win overall was the Redmen teammates and parents in the crowd with lots of incredibly loud cheers of joy and pride! Our cheers could be heard well above the opposing cheers in the packed arena. 
 
Congratulations on a great showing by our mighty Redmen as the tournament Silver medalist, 3rd place in goaltender challenge, shoot-out champion and relay champions! 

We are very proud of all of you!
