The Crusaders concluded a fun weekend away with a 2-1 record coming just shy of advancing to the finals.

The team had an early morning drive to get to their game Friday after a night of trick or treating. They held off the Bradford A team and entered the 3rd period down 3-1. The team lost energy in the 3rd and fell 7-1 to the Bulldogs. Alex had a great penalty shot save.

The team rebounded in the late afternoon with a 2hr delay in the game start due to a power outage. The boys came out strong and never let up winning 5-2 against the Hamburg Hawks A Team. Jake H played well in net and Jackson EH recorded the hat trick

This set up a must win game on Saturday afternoon. The Crusaders took a 2-1 lead into the start of the third. Newmarket AE pressed hard in our zone and rallied to get 4 goals in the 3rd to take a 5-3 win.

Syracuse beat Bradford 6-2 in the tournament final.

The boys had a fun time at the arena and the hotel and the moms had a good time shopping

The PEC Kings made it close in th 3rd pulling t 3-2, but a determined Crusader team added 4 more unanswered goals to take a 7-2 win.

Ayden B registered his forst goal of the season and Lucas D and Lewis G their first assists. Christiaan W and Lucas P (2 goals) were the other goal scorers

The defence played a solid 2 way game. The line of Duncan M, Sammy K and Jayden H has several chances on the night but the PEC goalie was stong early.

Alex O got his 2nd win while sporting a nice shinner from a volleyball accident. He kind of looks like “Petey”. Fitting as our team is pulling together like the Little Rascals
