Submitted By jbrock on Thursday, October 26, 2017
Finnbilt Novices reach semi-finals at Tillsonburg, St.Marys Golf and Country Club Atoms win the Tillsonburg tournament, and Firefighter Peewees win their tournament in South Muskoka.




Novices have a strong showing in Tillsonburg
Bill Scheuermann and his Finnbilt Novices were also entered in the annual Rep. tournament in Tillsonburg this past weekend. It’s called the Roy Beechey Memorial.

Two games on Friday meant the Rock had to work hard and they didn’t disappoint. Their first game was against South Muskoka Bears for an exciting start. They defeated their opponents, 5-3 to start the tournament off on the right foot.

In their second game, the Novices took on Belmont and just as the Rangers took the lead Donovan McGregor scored with an assist from Nick Brintnell.

Yet again, Belmont grabbed the lead until Kolton McAllister was able to tie the score again.

The St. Marys boys found themselves trailing by one going into the second period, however, Ethan Henderson found the back of the net and tied the count 3-3.

Needing a bit of insurance, Zachary Matheson was able to feed Hayden Wright the puck to boost the score 4-3 in the Rock’s favour. McAllister added another goal in the third and the boys claimed a 5-4 win over their Shamrock rival.

The Finnbilt squad had one game on Saturday and met their match as they took on Kincardine. The first period was almost scoreless until Kincardine was able to sneak one past St. Marys goalie Vaughn Barr.

Donovan McGregor was able to tie it up before the first period ended. After the second period was scoreless, Kincardine was able to slide another one home and the Rock team was defeated, 2-1.

On Sunday, the Finnbilt crew went into the semi-finals and took on the tournament host, Tillsonburg Tornadoes. The Rock fell behind in the first period by one goal, and continued to trail with a final score of 3-0.

Kincardine defeated Tillsonburg in the final.

Atom BB's win Tillsonburg tournament

Also in Tillsonburg were the St. Marys Golf and Country Club ‘BB’ Atoms, and they came home with the gold medals.

After going 1-1-1 and finishing first in their pool, Dan Schiedel’s squad defeated Goderich 5-1 in the semi-finals.

After losing to Saugeen Shores in round-robin play, St. Marys defeated the Storm 4-1 in the championship game.

Firefighter Peewees win South Muskoka tournament

BRACEBRIDGE – For the second year in a row, the Firefighter ‘BB’ Peewees won the Dan Bell Memorial hockey tournament, sponsored by South Muskoka minor hockey.

Dwain Smith’s squad went 4-1 to repeat as champions. Games were held in both Gravenhurst and Bracebridge on the Oct. 20-22 weekend.

In their opening game Friday afternoon in Bracebridge, Firefighters edged Durham Crusaders 4-3.

Three second-period goals gave the Rock a 4-1 lead.

St. Marys goal-scorers were captain Jimmy Schiedel, Ethan Brine, Owen Boyd and Alex Slade. Defenceman Rourke McEwan contributed two assists.

In their second game Saturday morning in Gravenhurst, Firefighters dropped a 3-1 decision to Elmvale Coyotes.

Elmvale built period leads of 1-0 and 2-0. Jimmy Schiedel scored the lone goal for the Rock, who did not take a penalty.

Firefighters got back to their winning ways in an afternoon contest against Penetang Flames.

The Rock held a slim 1-0 lead after two periods, and then scored four unanswered goals in the final 15 minutes to seal a 5-0 victory over the Flames.

Jimmy Schiedel, Ian Boyd, Peyton Lobb, Finn Stewart and Owen Boyd scored for St. Marys. Ethan Brine chipped in a pair of assists.

In their semi-final game Sunday morning in Bracebridge, six of the seven goals came in the third period as Firefighters skated to a 5-2 victory over Lincoln Blades.

The Rock carried a 1-0 advantage into the final 15 minutes. They needed two insurance goals in the final two minutes to clinch the win.

Ryan Hodkinson paced the St. Marys offence with two goals, including the winner, and one assist. The singles came off the sticks of Ethan Brine, Jaden Shiell and Owen Boyd. Ian Boyd earned two assists.

Just two hours later, Firefighters were back on the ice to face Penetang again in the championship final.

Captain Schiedel was a one-man wrecking crew in this game, scoring four times to lead the Rock to a 5-1 victory over the Flames. The centreman’s first two goals came just six seconds apart in the first period.

St. Marys held period leads of 2-1 and 3-1. The other Rock goal came off the stick of Hodkinson.

Coach Smith and his staff were pleased with the Firefighter Peewees’ overall performance in the Dan Bell Memorial.

“We played some really good hockey up north,” Smith reported. “We rotated our two goaltenders (Carter Froggett and Josh Ballantyne) and they were outstanding.

“All three lines contributed, and our defencemen contributed as well. We were getting points from the back-end. We were using the defence a bit more, and these guys have hard shots and they were finding the net.”

Firefighters “came together” as a team in the tournament, Smith said.

“I don’t think the boys liked their first loss of the season to Elmvale,” he noted. “It’s probably a game we shouldn’t have lost.

“It was a little wake-up call for us. It made them hungry for the next few games. It was a good tournament all-around for us.”

Notes:

--In their five tournament games, the Firefighter Peewees out-scored their opposition 20-9. St. Marys allowed just three goals against in their final three games.

Jimmy Schiedel sparked the offence with seven goals and three assists for 10 points.
