Elmvale Sweeps Maple Syrup Tournament
Submitted By Michael Kelly on Monday, March 26, 2018
It was a Championship Sunday to remember at the Maple Syrup Tournament.  All 3 Coyote teams (Novice, Atom & Peewee) walked away with Championship hats donated by tournament sponsor Elmvale Home Building Centre, sweeping away the competition in the final tournament of the season.

Novice Rep
The Novice Coyotes breezed through the round robin portion of the tournament with a 3-0 record.  Defeating Brighton (13-2), Collingwood AE (10-0), and Georgian Shores (7-1).

It was a different story for the Coyotes in both the semi finals and finals.  In the semi finals Elmvale upended Blyth Brussels 9-6 is a high scoring affair.  That win secured a berth in the Championship game against local rival Penetang.

In the final Elmvale trailed 3-1 at the midpoint of the game, but came back in exciting fashion scoring 4 unanswered goals to grab the win and the Red Hats.  Final score 5-3.

Atom Rep
The Atom Coyotes also ran the table in the round robin portion of the tournament.  Finishing 1st in Pool A with a 3-0 record.  Wins against Flesherton (9-1), Seaforth (9-2), & Port Colborne (5-2).

In the Semi Finals Elmvale faced a tenacious TCDMHA team from Chatsworth.  The score was tied at the midpoint of the 3rd period, when the Coyotes struck for 3 quick ones to earn a place in the Championship versus the Pembroke Kings.

Elmvale got out to an early 3-0 lead on Pembroke, but the Kings scored a couple 2nd period goals to draw within 1.  That was as close as they would get as the Coyotes continued to put pressure on the Kings defense and tallied another 3 goals putting it out of reach and they to walked away with some new Red Hats.  Final score 6-2.

Peewee Rep
The Peewee Coyotes were able secure 1st place in their pool as well, just not in as dominating a fashion as their younger counterparts.  Wins against Sturgeon Lake (6-1), Stirling (3-0), and a loss to Port Colborne (1-0) gave them a 2-1 record which edged them ahead of Port Colborne for 1st place in the pool as Port Colborne had lost and tied their other games.

The semi finals had Elmvale face the Rebels from Chatsworth.  While the Coyotes controlled the play for the most part throughout the game they found themselves tied at 2 with under 10 minutes remaining in the game.  Elmvale broke through in the final 10 minutes scoring 5 times to make the final 7-2, and earn a 2nd chance at Port Colborne in the Championship.

The Coyotes played well throughout the final.  They opened up a 2 goal lead early and never looked back.  Earning a 5-0 win and their own Red Hats.
