Major Midget Otters are MPS Champions
The MBRP Major Midget Otters have won gold at the MPS Regional Playoff Tournament hosted in Huntsville January 5th and 6th.
The Otters went 4-0 over the two day playoff tournament and will be keeping the Major Midget Championship Trophy at home for the second year in a row.
The Otters started the tournament off with a match up against the South Muskoka Bears. The game proved to be a nail biter, with a score of 2-2 when the final buzzer rang. Next up on Saturday, the Otters took on the Highland Storm, which ended 6-2 in favour of the Otters. Sunday morning, the Otters faced off against the Parry Sound Shamrocks and wrapped up their round robin play with a 9-2 win.
Sunday afternoon saw the Otters face off once again with the South Muskoka Bears for the Championship Game. The Otters got the jump on the Bears and held a 2-0 lead until late in the third when the Bears pulled their goalie and were able to find the back of the Otters net, bringing the score to 2-1. The Otters were able to dig down and hold their lead, finishing out the game with the win and the championship.
