The Penetang Flames Atom LL #1 team competed in the International Silver Stick tournament in Pelham, Ontario on the weekend of January 9th.  A tournament that requires 6 ice surfaces and 4 days.   With over 70 teams coming together from as far away as California this event was amazing for our young athletes.  

Penetang Flames Atom LL1 competed in the SilverStick International tournament in Pelham Ontario the weekend of January 9th.  A tournament that requires 6 ice surfaces and 4 days.   With over 70 teams coming together from as far away as California this event was amazing for our athletes.  
A tournament of this size really showed our flames as skilled athletes. We played 4 games, the 4 teams we played all played in the championships.  Due to luck of the draw us and 3 of the top teams faced off in a round Robin,  we won our first 2 games against the eventual Consolation Championships teams with a 3-2 win over the Michigan Gladiators, and a 5-1 Win over the Tillsonburg Tornadoes who went on to take the Consolation championship. 
In day 2 we faced the Lambton Predators, it was a hard fought game in which our lack of full ice experience really showed.  Our goalie Reece M. Went down hard to make a save and pulled a muscle, he came off and Beckham B filled the net making some great saves but unfortunately we came up shy losing 2-1 putting us in 2nd place in our pool.   
Our next game was against the leafs, the team to eventually take the championship.   
Beckham B. started in net as a Reece M. was not back to 100%.  The Leafs played a full ice game that our flames just couldn't match.  Beckham was often faced with multiple players in our zone who got behind our flames, with a 0-7 loss Beckham saved 4 shots for every one that went in.   Dispite this loss our team played hard,  The Leafs went on to take the championship beating the Predetors.
