Paris Cobblestone Bantam LL1 undefeated at Syl Apps Memorial Tournament
Submitted By Al Sharpe on Wednesday, March 25, 2015
The Paris Cobblestone Bantam LL1 team had just finished their round robin playoffs with a 5-0-1 record and came to win the Syl Apps Memorial Tournament.

The first game of the tournament was Friday afternoon against an unknown team from East Lambton.  The Paris team was relentless from the drop of the puck.  East Lambton was down by 3 goals only minutes into the game and Paris never looked back.  The Wolfpack scored 9 goals to East Lambton’s 2 and showed the other teams in the tournament they were here to take it all.  Goal scorers for Paris were Kyle Kesteloot (3), Davis Moore (2), Braden Clarke (2), Noah Plumstead (1), and Noah Cobb (1),.  Assists for the team went to Plumstead (3), Eli Stowe (2), Cobb (2), Hunter Brouillard (2), Michael MacKenzie (1), Eric Watson. (1), Riley McLelland (1), Brodie Clarke (1), Moore (1), Kesteloot (1), and Braden Clarke (1).

On Saturday morning Paris was up against a team from St. George and the Wolfpack continued their take no prisoner’s attitude and finished with another convincing win by a score of 8-2. Points went to Kesteloot (3 g, 1 a), P (3 a), Drew McLean. (1 g, 1 a), Moore (2 a), Cobb (1 g), Brouillard (1 g, 1 a), Braden Clarke. (1 g), Watson (1 a).

 

The afternoon game would decide the Pool and set the stage for the semi finals. Paris found themselves facing off against a strong opponent from Thornton who also had already tallied 2 wins in the tournament. Both teams scored in the first and battled the entire way but neither would concede a second. The final score 1-1. Paris’ goal scorer was Cobb with assists to Brouillard and MacKenzie Paris finished 2nd in their pool as it was decided by goals for / goals against + goals for and Thornton achieved a better average by 2%.

 

The semi final game for Paris was Sunday morning. Midland had battled hard to tie for first place in their pool and had visions of winning the tournament, but then they played Paris. With the addition of K.C. Young to the Paris bench (previously out on the injury reserve with an upper body injury) Paris was ready to take on Midland and claim their spot in the finals. Midland fought hard and tried to keep up with the rapid pace set by Paris but were unable to match the tenacious play of the Wolfpack. 

When the final buzzer sounded Paris was victorious 4-2. Young and Moore each had 2 goals, Cobb had 4 assists, with Stowe and Brouillard both getting 2 assists.

 

Thornton won their semi-final game in overtime so the stage was set and the rematch with Thornton would determine the tournament champs.

 

Both teams came out strong to try to set the tone for the game and show their opponent they would not surrender. Paris scored twice in the first period with goals by Stowe and Moore, and assists from Cobb and Moore Thornton answered in the 2nd with 2 goals of their own to even it up. The 3rd period saw many opportunities with both goalies making incredible saves and giving their team the chance to win, but regulation time would not be enough to determine a winner. Overtime saw a 5  minute period of 4 on 4, a 3 minute period of 3 on 3, and a 2 minute period of 2 on 2 with still no goal scored. Shootout would have to determine the tournament winner.

 

The goalies continued to be the heroes of this game. After 16 shooters had gone for each team only 2 goals had been scored, 1 for each team. Paris’ goal came from Young who was now set to shoot again. Young did not disappoint and was able to beat a stellar Thornton goalie for the second time in the shootout with a quick low wrist shot. Thornton’s next shooter had to score to keep them in the game. Paris’ goalie MacKenzie was ready and knew what had to be done. McKenzie would not yield that goal and Paris was the victor.

 

Congratulations to all the players and coaching staff for an excellent tournament and one of the most exciting finishes many of us will ever get to see! Great job gentlemen!
