MIDGET REPS TAKE SILVER AND THANK COMMUNITY FOR TREMENDOUS SUPPORT!
Submitted By Andrea Carson-Pedri on Thursday, March 26, 2015
It’s been a number of years that we've seen so many fans come out to cheer on a local hockey team. With standing room only and edge of the seat excitement for both home games, the Shelburne Community came out in droves to lend their support to the Midget Rep team. SMHA President Chris LaForm said “we’re very proud of the effort that our boys brought forth and it was incredible to see the support that our community offered. The Town was certainly abuzz with excitement and it was wonderful to see that support in attendance numbers at our arena”.

 

 

After a close loss in game 3 at home and falling behind 2-1 in the series, the Midget Rep’s faced Port Dover in their arena for game 4 on Sunday last. Dover put 2 goals on the board in the first and Shelburne was able to answer with 1 from Asst. Captain Drew Downey. Despite a close back and forth game, Dover was able to hold onto to their lead through the 3rd and 2 late empty netters sealed the Wolves fate.

 

Despite the loss, the Shelburne Wolves Midget Rep Team, sponsored by Shelburne Home Hardware and Bob Currie Masonry, had an incredible series run beating out a variety of tough Ontario teams both East and West to earn a coveted spot in the OMHA Championship Finals. “Of course it would have been great to win”, said Captain Dean Currie, “but we’re all still pretty proud to say we made it right through to the finals. We know our families, our coaches and the fans were with us the whole way so this is one season end none of us will ever forget”!    

 

“It really was a pleasure for me, my brother Nick, Dave Ritchie, Scott Holmes and Brian McBride to be able to coach the boys this year”, stated Head Coach Mike Glassford. “They really are a close bunch of players on ice and a close bunch of friends off ice. We hope this was just one more season where they are as proud of each other as we and everyone is of them. We wish the boys all the best as many move on to attend college or start their careers. And a special shout-out to Terry Fines, added Glassford.  “Without her, our season wouldn’t have been near as organized or as enjoyable so thank you Terry”!

 

The Midget Rep Team of Dean Currie, Jake Currie, Drew Downey, Stephen Falls, Isaac Fazackerley, Nick Fines, Keith Gordanier, Darrin Janke, Eric Johnson, Zack LaForm, Chayse McCallum, Ty McCallum, Nathan Newmaster, Brandon Richardson, Lucas Ritchie and Darren Taylor all wish to say a great bigTHANK YOU to their coaches, families, sponsors and supporters for a great 2014-2015 season!

 

Good job boys!  Be proud! We are!
