Minor Midgets win the Jim Wilson Classic Tourney!
Submitted By Dianna Clark on Wednesday, November 13, 2013
This past weekend the Jason Armstrong Minor Midget Otters played in the Jim Wilson Winter Classic Tournament in Orillia. They had 3 wins in the round robin portion of the tourney which tied them in first place.   Onto the Sunday Semi Final game. Due to the point system and format of the tournament Huntsville met the Toronto Eagles in the Semi final game. When asked to comment on the team’s success from Head Coach Rocky Clarke, this was "one of the best games they have played yet" . 

All thought the game sheet doesn't show all the contributions from the entire team, but the game wouldn't have been won without everyone's tremendous effort.  In the semi-final game, the Otters downed the Eagles 3-1. Off to the finals where the Otters met the South Muskoka Bears.  The Bears came out growling and determined to put their best game forward against the Otters. It was evident from the beginning of this game the Otters were not taking the Bears for granted. N Zantingh  scored in the first period assisted by Dobson which only poked at the Bears to aggravate them more.. Thankfully the Otters kept out of the penalty box most the game to remain full strength, but that was not the case for the Bears. Huntsville had only 2 minutes in the sin bin for high sticking by J  Zantingh the entire game. The Bears had 12 min in  penalties with most of the calls in the 3rd period, this was after the bears tied the game up in the second period. With the extra man on ice for the Otters, play was dominated and mostly in the Bears end.  Accolades must be given to the Bears tender for keeping the game close from the onslaught of Otter shots in the third. Hudson put one in from Doherty early in the third but the Otters couldn't manage an insurance goal the rest of the period. Final score for the Otter victory in the championship game was 2-1. All around as it was a great weekend of hockey for this team and Huntsville is proud of their representation!  Way to go Otters!
