This past weekend, the Brock Jr Badgers Atom BB team came in second place in the Aurora Girls Silver Stick Finals.
The Badgers went undefeated in round-robin play, taking down the Barrie Colts 1-0 on Friday evening. The Badgers followed that up with a 2-1 win over the Aurora Panthers on Saturday morning, and a 2-0 win over the North Simcoe Capitals on Saturday night.
In the championship game, the Badgers took an early 1-0 lead after a goal by captain Sam Greene. The game was back and forth — but Barrie managed to squeeze out two third period goals to take the rematch.
The Badgers had extremely strong play from both of their goaltenders this weekend, and in their game against North Simcoe — had all their defensemen play forward and an entire forward line play defense. Their game against North Simcoe was highlighted by defensemen Charlee Rowland scoring both goals (playing left wing this game), her first two on the season.
Despite the tough loss, the Badgers were 12 STRONG all weekend long, and look to carry their momentum into LLFHL playoffs — where they await the winner of Oakville vs Etobicoke to begin their quest for a league title.
