Year End Wrap Up!
Submitted By Brad Weber on Sunday, March 23, 2014
With the season heading to a close your Tyke Green had a couple more thrills for their many fans 



Before the start of the March break we headed to Park Hill for a tournament.  We came out of the Gate flying high and ready to go Winning our first game against Ilderton Blue. We had a slow start to the game allowing our opponent to take a quick 2 goal lead, but once we settled down we managed to show our skill and power skating and won the game.   Our Goalie for the first game was Cash M. and Goal scorers were Presley B. Lane H.
Cohen S. Spencer R. and Nate V.

Our Next Game was against Strathroy Black Once Again we found ourselves playing catch up allowing our competitors to take another 2 goal lead early but our out standing goal play of Presley B. defensive efforts by Cash M. and face off wins by Clair W. and Josselyn V.  allowed us to come back and make a solid effort to pull out a win but with time winding down even with our last ditch efforts it was not in the cards for us to take the W. Goal scorers on the game were Lane H. and Cohen S. 

Our 3rd Game of the day was against East Lambton.  Kyle V. dawned the goalie pads for this game in what was sure to be a beauty of a game.  With a shortened bench and our players running on fumes we were ready to go from the drop of the puck, defensive plays by Ethan H. Christian F. and Colin W. allowed this game to stay close. Goal Scorers for the game were Cohen S. Lane H. Nate V. and Spencer R. 

Now into  their 4th game in less then 9 hrs your Tyke Green squared off against a well rested  Park Hill team.  Taking his turn between the pipes was Lane H. and was ready to sacrifice any part of his to make the play including his head.  Park Hill starting the scoring off quickly and didn't let their foot off the gas of the reset of the game.  With our team now scraping the bottom of the barrel to muster up some energy your tyke green once again took to the boards to keep the game in toe.  Goal Scores for the game were Cohen S. and Presley B. 

Although we lost 3 of the 4 games we still managed to play our hearts out and have a lot of fun doing it Great Job Tyke Green.  

The Week after our tournament we too to the Road to challenge Strathroy White.  Cash M. once again took the pads and played a stellar game in net turing away multiple shots and covering the puck at every chance.  Offensive rushes by Presley B. Josselyn V. Drew K. and stellar work along the boards by Spencer R.

Defensive play was again on the top of the list for you tyke green Christian F. Colin W. and Clair W. all played outstanding in our zone helping their goalie at any chance they could.  Neutral Zone plays by Owen C. Ethan H. Nate V. and Kyle V. stopped the Rockets from gaining the zone on multiple opportunities.  Our  Lone goal of the game came off the stick of Lane H. who managed to skate in alone get a shot on the goalie and follow it up with another shot off the rebound and burry it blocker side.  

At the end of the Horn we were not on the winning side of the Score sheet but once again the score does  not reflect the play of the game.  Great Job Tyke Green 

Our final game of the Regular season was at home against Mount Brydges White.  Nate V. was once again ready to be our protector of the pipes.  With a full bench we looked well rested and ready to roll.  Scoring opportunities came quick and often Cohen S. got this started less then 1 minute into the game with and offensive rush that allowed him to skate in un touched. He would go on to add two more goals on the day.  Assists on Cohen S. goals went to Drew K. and Spencer R. 

Our next goal was due to some good work in front of the net with multiple scoring opportunities in one shift, Lane H. managed to find the back of the net giving us a 2 goal lead. He would later to go on to add another goal later in the game.  

More outstanding play out front of the Cougars goal allowed both Christian F. and Presley B. to get us another 2 goals putting the game out of reach of Mount Brydges 

This was another great game and a Great way to end the season.  

On Saturday night we were asked to play a warm up game against our cross town rivals Tyke White before the Guns and Hoses charity game.  

With a short bench and bragging rights on the line your Tyke Green was pumped up and ready to go.  Cohen S. strapped on the pads and was keen to play.  Cohen pounced on the puck at "EVERY" opportunity, turing the puck away and stopping play allowing your tyke green to maintain control of the play.  

The first shift of the game saw Lane H. score back to back goals allowing us to take the lead.  From the point forward we went straight into defence mode skating hard back and clearing the zone and helping protect our goalie Standout defensive plays on the night game from both Cash M and Owen C.  Breakout plays by Josselyn V. . Colin W. and Presley B. saw Drew K. , Nate V. and Kyle V. challenge the tyke white goalie.  Even though we were up by 2 Goals the goal of the game came from that standard nose to the net attitude that your Tyke Green has become famous for.  Lane H. had the puck in the corner and treaded a perfect pass to one Ethan H. who made no mistake smoking a one timer past the goalie for our Third of the Game and Ethan's first on the season. Great job Ethan. 

At the end of the Horn your Tyke Green was the one that came out on top of the score sheet. 


Now with our playing season over your Coaching Staff and Team Managers would like to take this opportunity to Congratulate all the players on a wonderful season.  You have all shown great improvement from the start of the season and managed to gel as a great team. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with you all.
