Atom BB's Win Silver at Provincials!
The Atom BB's fantastic season ended in a Lower Lakes Western Division championship, Falling just short of making it to the Lower Lakes Championship weekend they conquered two other teams to qualify for Provincials, which took place this past weekend.

After an eventful drive to Toronto, for some, the tournament began.  Not knowing how the girls would come out after having some time away from the ice over the last month, they played a great game against a strong Gloucester team.  After a sluggish first, where they were down by 1, they got their legs under them and won an important first round robin game 4-3, with Lerissa scoring two and Bronwyn scoring two.  

Next up was Aurora, a penalty filled game, as the Heat came out flying and were impossible to catch.  The final was 4-0, giving Kyla her first shutout of the tournament and scoring from Leah with one, Lerissa with two and Bronwyn with one.

Saturday's round robin game matched them against Mississauga.  After outplaying them, the Heat failed to warm up tying the Chiefs with a score of 2-2, but clinching first place in their pool and securing a quarter final game against Etobicoke.  Goals were scored by Teagan and Lerissa.

Etobicoke were no match as the Heat continued gaining momentum, winning 5-0 and blazing their way to the medal rounds.  Bronwyn scored two, and Mallory, Lerissa and Callie each scored one.

After a late night, for some, the semi-final game came early against a strong Barrie team in which the girls played their best game of the tournament, outhustling Barrie in every facet of the game in a convincing 5-1 final!  Goals were scored by Ava, Bronwyn, Mallory, each with one and Lerissa with two.  

After finally learning the correct pronunciation of Gloucester, the rematch for the gold medal was on!  In a game that was well played by the Heat, they couldn't get past the Stars strong goaltending performance.  Tied 1-1 after regulation, it was off to overtime.  Only a few minutes in, a bad bounce over the defence's stick allowed the Stars to capitalize on a breakaway, ending the Heat's hope for gold.  Final score, 2-1, with our lone goal scored by Ava.

A sweet silver finish capped off a fantastic season for the Atom BB team.  Great friends, great families, great coaches!  Thanks to Head Coach Matt, and Bench Staff Kevin, Chris, Scott and Kim for steering this amazing team into the history books of Huron Heat!  #huronheatproud
