Novice Reps Win Duke Knox Otter Classic
Submitted By Duane Homick on Monday, December 10, 2018
The Penetang Flames Novice Rep team won their fourth tournament of the year - the Novice A Duke Knox Otter Classic this past weekend in Huntsville, ON!

Penetang started strong with a 9-0 win over the Kawartha Coyotes playing on the olympic sized Don Lough ice surface in their only game on Friday.  Following the match, Penetang headed to the Hidden Valley Resort for some swimming, tobogganing and a team pasta dinner. 

In their first game on Saturday, Penetang faced a pesky and relentless Casselman-Embrun Ice Dogs squad that challenged the Flames the entire game with the Flames eventually pulling out the W with a 5-1 final.  The final round robin game, played again on the olympic sized ice, was a battle of attrition with both teams fighting fatigue in a game won by the Flames 5-0.  

With top seed in the B pool, the Flames faced host Huntsville Otters in the semi-finals.  The Otters scored first and held the Flames to just one goal through the first period.  However, in the second and third, the Flames found their legs and proved too much for the Otters, taking the semi-final 11-1.  

The finals was a matchup of the only undefeated teams from the weekend with the Flames facing the Listowel Cyclones on Sunday afternoon.  Despite a strong shot advantage, the Flames managed to solve the Cyclones goalie only once getting turned aside over and over again through the first two periods as the teams headed to the third tied at 1.  In the third, Penetang continued to pour it on eventually netting two goals to take a 3-1 lead.  Some timely defense and goaltending preserved the victory and Penetang captured the Duke Knox Classic for their fourth tournament title of the year!

Congrats to the players and coaches!

Good luck in Pelham (International Silver Stick) on Jan 10-13!
