2012 Midget Champions - John MacDonald Tournament
Submitted By Dave Gerow on Tuesday, December 18, 2012
The Midget Hurricanes are the Champions of the 2012 John MacDonald Tournament.

In a gritty game the Canes came back from a 2-0 deficit against rival Cambridge Hawks with Justice Mercier scoring the winner in O/T.

In round robin play the Canes were a defensive machine with wins of 3-0 versus the Brampton Sharpshooters, 2-0 over the Oakville Flyers and 4-0 against the Southpoint Capitals.  Goal scorers were Drew Chapelle with two goals.  Singles came from Bostin Bedard, Justice Mercier, Owen Austin, Cree Blakely, Brandon Butts, Max Abfal and Connor Mathieson.  Mathew Cormier and Jordan Lisko were awesome in goal.

In the Semi Finals the Canes fell behind 3-1 to the Brampton Spitfires before storming back late in the third and to send the game into overtime. Cree Blakely and Max Abfal started the overtime with great teamwork and after many chances Max took a great pass from Cree to win the game. The other goal scorers were Justice Mercier, Spencer Lafontaine and Drew Chapelle.  In the finals the Canes played the always nasty Cambridge Hawks. The Hawks started quickly and stunned the Canes with two first period goals.  Late in the first and into the second the Canes started playing like Champions and were rewarded with a goal from Adam Hoekstra.  Down late in the third Evan Lukasik found the back of the net to tie the game.  The overtime session did not last long.  Drew Chapelle made a great pass to Justice Mercier and the Canes were Champions. The remaining players Brendan McCabe, Alex Fedosov, Colin Miller, Landon Wilson and Jake Horne played great all weekend.

Congratulations Boys!!!!!!!
