'05 Minor Bantam AAA wins Prestigious International Silver Stick Tournament
Submitted By Melissa Wolk on Friday, November 30, 2018
The 2005 Oakville Rangers went undefeated over seven games on their way to capturing the Championship at the Gloria Rints Memorial International Silver Stick Tournament in Whitby (November 22-25). 

The AAA Silver Stick tournament is among the toughest tournaments to win as only top teams from the various leagues and regions throughout North America are invited, which guarantees the highest level of competition.

After sweeping their round robin division games, the '05 Oakville Rangers posted convincing victories in the quarter-final over Detroit Belle Tire (4-0) and in the semi-final over the Toronto Jr Canadiens (3-1). 

The Championship game was a nail-biting affair against the Mississauga Reps where Oakville led for most of the game, but the Reps rallied to tie the game in the third period to force overtime! The first overtime period settled nothing and neither did the second overtime period! Finally, early in the third overtime period, Oakville scored to secure the Championship!

This was a total team victory, with contributions coming from the full line-up. The coaching staff is extremely proud of all the players and would like to thank each family for their time and commitment to the team.

This is the second consecutive tournament win for this '05 Oakville Rangers team as they also captured the Championship at the Wendy Dufton Memorial tournament in London in October.
