Finnbilt Novice BB's Win OMHA Championship!
Submitted By jbrock on Thursday, March 24, 2016
In an exciting game that was never really decided until well into the third period last night, the Finnbilt Novice BB's closed out their series against Niagara On The Lake, to win their OMHA finals series with three straight wins.

The Rock scored early in the first period, which was followed late in the period by a NOTL goal.  Even play through the second period kept the large crowd on the edge of their seats, with teams exchanging scoring chances, great defensive play, and sound goaltending. 

Partway through a tense third period, the Rock went ahead, and then sealed the game with just a couple of minutes remaining on what would be the third goal of the game for N.Schiedel.  While there was also a last second puck that made it's way into the empty NOTL net, the final score of the game remained 3-1, in favour of the Rock.

The Finnbilt Novices had a challenging path to get to the finals, beating out opponents from Strathroy Dorchester, Erin-Hillsburgh on their way to the finals.  The team finished with a solid 26 win season, and seemed to find an extra gear when games were on the line.  In addition to the championship, the team also won the Pelham Silver Stick, and represented SMMHA in the International Silver Stick in St.Clair, Michigan.


Congratulations on a stellar season, and for representing the association and the community in such an exemplary fashion.  Congratulations and thanks should be extended to all players, parents and families, and supporters of the team throughout the year.  A special congratulations and thanks to the coaching staff who dedicated countless hours to the team.  Finally, special mention should be made of one of the team's most valuable members, C.Hawkins, who provided inspiration to teammates and others alike with his determination, perseverance, and unwavering belief in the power of positive thinking.

A well deserved championship for a special group of players and coaches.
