Break The Ice Finalist
Submitted By Michael Heffernan on Sunday, September 8, 2019
The Trent Lakes Plumbing Minor Peewee AA Pete’s team took part in the Ajax Break the Ice Tournament over the weekend as a tune up for their upcoming season.  They faced off Thursday night vs. the host Ajax Knights.  In their first game as a team the Pete’s controlled the play throughout the game, giving up very few scoring chances.  However, when Ajax did manage to get a chance Nathan Sorichetti was strong in net and picked up a shutout in a 2-0 opening win.  Aedan Temple scored the opener on a set up from Kaleb Jamieson and Jack Gauvreau.  Peterboroughs second goal was on a lone effort by Braeden Couture. 

Next up on Friday for the Pete’s was the Glancaster Bombers.  This was a hard fought tight game through the first two periods.  Peterborough’s, Aedan Temple, opened the scoring in the first with assist going to Cameron Reynolds.  However, the Bombers found the equalizer late in the second.  With the game tied going into the third, the team dug in and took control of the Glancaster team.  Peterborough scored three unanswered goals in the final period.  Jack Davies score on passes from Travis Heffernan and Ben Gusso.  Davies then scored his second of the period, short handed on a great individual effort putting the Pete’s up by two.  Jamieson then fired a shot home for the fourth goal assisted by Gauvreau.  Antonio Bianco was solid in net, keeping it close in the first two periods.

The final round robin game the Pete’s would face their league rivals from last years league final, the Whitby Wildcats.   The bad blood came quickly between these two and they left off right were things left off in last years league final.  This time however Peterborough took an early two goal lead in the first on goals from Couture who scored on a early rush, and then Gauvreau connected on a pass from Temple. Peterborough opened the second quickly with Katie Belk finishing off a passing play from Heffernan and Davies.  After the Wildcats score one early in the third the Pete’s were able to take a three goal lead again after Caiden Rogers scored, assists going to Tristan Boucher and Davies.   The game was far from over even with a 4-1 lead as Peterborough got into some penalty trouble and gave up two late short handed goals. This set up a wild scramble to the finish but Sorichetti was strong in net and shut the door to secure the win and take first place after the round robin.

            After receiving a bye through the quarters, the team sponsored by Trent Lake Plumbing, would face off in a rematch with the team from Glancaster.  Teams now had notes on each, allowed for a much tighter played game. Both teams traded off on great scoring chances, but the goal by Temple from Gauvreau in the first stood up to be the 1-0 game winner.   Antonio Bianco recorded the shut out after stopping two breakaways late in the game to secure the win and advance to the teams first tournament champion of the young season. 

            The championship game would have a rematch between Whitby and Peterborough after Whitby knocked off Brampton in the other semi final.   This was another great game between the two bitter rivals.  Whitby was ready after the round robin loss and jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead.  Peterborough however through injuries and adversity did not roll over and battled back to make it a tight finish.  Davies broke the Whitby shut out after scoring on a rebound from Jack Burns and Braedan Saxby.   This gave the team life and they regrouped and score again at the five-minute mark of the third on a Couture goal set up by Gauvreau and Heffernan.  After battling hard the Pete’s came up a bit short and could not score the equalizer and had to settle for Silver. 

            The coaching staff was extremely happy with the teams effort, play and overall success in their first tournament and five games.  Team players include: Antonio Bianco, Nathan Sorichetti, Ben Gusso, Cameron Reynolds, Jack Gauvearu, Colby Kekki, Blake Moncrief, Jack Davies, Tristan Boucher, Travis Heffernan, Caiden Rogers, Jack Burns, Braedan Saxby, Aedan Temple, Kaleb Jamieson, Katie Belk and Braeden Couture.

            Next action for the Trent Lakes Minor Peewee AA team is next Saturday when they travel to Kingston to open their regular season.   Their home opener is Sunday September 15th at Kinsmen arena when they host the Whitby Wildcats, the team will look to avenge the tough tournament loss.
