Print2011-12 Highlights

Atom Reps are 2011-12 Shamrock League Champions!

The Atom Rep team capped off a successful season winning the Shamrock League Atom Rep Championship.

The Storm finished 2nd overall, just behind the Petrolia Oilers, in the 22 team league in regular season play and then after a 3 round stay in the OMHA Playdowns joined the Shamrock League ‘A’ Playoffs.  After sweeping the Belmont Rangers in the Semis the Storm faced off against the Oilers for the Championship.  After 3 matchups during the season the teams were even with a 1-1-1 record with the Storm’s win coming in OT in the Silver Stick Semi-Finals.  Starting on the road the Storm stole Game 1 of the Finals, tying it late and winning early in OT, 3-2.  Game 2 saw the Storm take a 2-1 win at home setting up for Game 3 back in Petrolia.  The Storm left little doubt that they were deserving Champions scoring 18 seconds in and then dominating for a 5-1 win and a 3 games to 0 series sweep.

The Storm finished their 63 game season with a 40-17-6 record and a +80 goal differential.  They won the Mooretown Tournament and were finalists in 3 others, one being the Regional ‘A’ Silver Stick which earned them an invite to experience the International Silver Stick Tournament in Sarnia.

Atom AE Finalists in Alymer Tournament

The Mooretown Storm Atom AE team played in the Alymer Tournament during the weekend of March 16-19th. They began the tournament on Friday night by beating Huntsville 3-1. The Storm then had to rise and shine early on the Saturday morning for a 7am game against Norwich that they lost 3-2. Mooretown would fall again against Simcoe 2-1 but had earned enough period and game points to be seeded fourth and have a rematch against top seeded Norwich in the semi-final. That game proved to be an exciting affair going to a double overtime thriller where the Storm potted the game winner to face off against Huntsville in the final. Although Mooretown gave what effort they could, the Sunday morning final would not turn out in favour of the AEs losing 4-3. Regardless, they were still the finalists and should be proud of their achievement.

A very intense back and forth game seeing Mooretown take a 2 -1 lead after the 1st period, the players did not take no for an answer, even after the Jr. Stars tied the game in the 2nd, leading up to an amazing final. After the 3rd period chances, kept the fans on the edge of their seats, the teams had to play a 3 on 3 OT for 5 min.  Shootout is needed and exactly what Spencer Johnson is ready for, after the first 5 initial shooters the score was 1 - 1 and sudden death shootout would continue. While the buzz was in the arena, and the noise coming from fans cheering and gasping at the close calls, on the 14th shooter Austin Kilbreath would score his 2nd goal in the shootout, and just as he turned around he got to see Spencer make his 13th save to seal the win for Mooretown.
