Congratulations Atom LL1 Rockets!
Submitted By Will Wall on Wednesday, December 4, 2019
The Delhi Rockets Atom LL 1 Team (Delhi Physiotherapy) travelled to Haliburton/Wilberforce ON for the Haliburton/Minden International Silver Stick Tournament on November 30-December 1, 2019.

The team went undefeated in round robin play on Saturday with scores of 3-1 (Havelock), 5-2 Lakefield) and 6-4 (Highland Storm #2).

Moving on to Saturday and the semifinals/finals; the Rockets faced a tough Apsley team, however pulled off a 4-2 win to move on to the finals.

In the finals, the Rockets faced the very strong Highland Storm #1 team who was also undefeated in the tournament as well in their regular league play. 

The game was intense from start to finish. Although the Rockets were down after the first period 1-0, they fought back with amazing teamwork, passing and determination. By the last 5 minutes of the game the score was 2-2. 

It was with less than 2 minutes left the team banded together, never giving up and pushed themselves like we have never seen. Through more amazing passing and teamwork, Brady M. was able to get the puck to the Storm’s end and with a little patience was able to get passed the Storms goalie to put the Rockets up by 1.

The team continued to work hard, and both the defense and forwards did an amazing job of keeping the Storm out of the Rocket’s end. The result a 3-2 win to take home the GOLD!

The coaching staff could not be prouder of all the players; not only did they encourage one another, remained positive and never gave up; they truly put forth the best 5 games of hockey we have seen so far this season!

On to Pelham in January 2020 for the Silver stick finals #goRocketsgo
