Ajax/Pickering Raiders Quicker In Quinte
Submitted By Dave Hutchison on Monday, October 22, 2012
The 2003 Ajax/Pickering Raiders Minor Atom AAA Hockey Team sponsored by K & K Recycling Services, Portly Piper, Melfer Construction and Sauter’s Restaurant were victorious at the Quinte Hockey Tournament October 12-14.
Starting with round robin play the Raiders had 4 solid wins over Quinte, London, Rideau and Kingston. The 4 straight wins, allowing only 1 goal against gave the Raiders the #1 seed and set up the semi final game against Rideau who the team had beat earlier in the tournament. The Raiders continued to focus on defensive play and with great goaltending by Hayden Candler they were able to shut the Rideau offence down winning the game 8-0. This win put the Raiders into the finals against the home town Quinte Red Devils. The game was a close checking one and after 2 periods the Raiders held a 2-0 lead, but at the end of play they came out with a 4-0 win on another shutout by Jason Clements his 3rd of the tournament.
When asked about their victory, Coach John Petsinis mentioned that allowing only 1 goal in six games is no easy task and that he was very impressed with the team’s commitment to defensive hockey. Our defencemen stand tall and our forwards backchecking is fantastic.
Congratulations to goalies: Hayden Candler and Jason Clements, Defencemen: Domenic Arabia, Thomas Gibson, Nicolaus Huebel, Jake Hutchison, Jacob Longbottom and Blake Petsinis, Forwards: Liam Arnsby, Eric Edwards, Ryan Gardner, Gavin Harkness, Evan Kauffman, Ty MacDonald, Colin Muldoon, Joshua Simpson and Noah Theodor.
Congratulations and thanks also goes out to our Coaching staff – Ass’t Coaches Rob Huebel and Marcel Longbottom, Trainer Paul Simpson, On Ice Helpers Lee Muldoon and Roy Edwards, Goalie Coach Bob Candler, Manager Walt Arnsby and Coach John Petsinis.
