Bringing Home the GOLD !! - Peewee AA
Submitted By Nickie McRobbie on Wednesday, November 18, 2015
Congratulations go out to our Peewee AA team for capturing the Gold Medal at this past weekends CAN/AM Challenge Cup in Montreal, November 13-15, 2015

As we enjoy our minor hockey careers, there are many memorable moments along the way.  This past weekend our Newmarket Redmen Peewee AA team added a few more exciting memories.  The Redmen came stoked for all competition.  To start, our Redmen won the skating relay race on Saturday while competing in the skills contest, also including the shootout. This remarkable group of 16 boys, imposed their will and relentless determination throughout the weekend. The Redmen completed the round robin in first place with a 3-1 record with tough competition from Vaughan, and 3 US Teams.  This winning record put them in the finals against the Massachusetts Minutemen.  The Redmen scored first in hard fought game, complete with extreme momentum changes.  The Redmen held the lead through the second period when the Minutemen were finally able to even the score at 1-1.  The third period was no different with regards to defibrillator style hockey ending the period 1-1.  3 periods weren’t enough to decide a winner so off to overtime.  The format was  4 on 4 for 2 minutes, 3 on 3 for 2 minutes, 2 on 2 for 2 minutes, 1 on 1 for 2 minutes, and they played it all, and more. After the 7 periods of hockey they continued with the 1 on 1 format and finally...with 1:12 left in the 8th period, our Redmen completed an end to end rush and made a nifty dangle and slid the puck home giving our mighty Redmen a 2-1 victory as the rink erupted in cheers and tears.  What they accomplished is immeasurable.  What they experienced though, will never be completely captured on a game sheet.  Huge thanks to our many supporters who came and cheered throughout the weekend.   #yeswereallydidit #bringinghomethegold.
