Bantam A Capture Gold in Leaside
Submitted By Carolyn Tegelaar on Friday, March 22, 2019
The Bantam A team has had a great showing in tournaments this season, picking up 2 gold medals. The Bantam A Twisters had a strong showing in the Toronto Leaside Wildcats March Break Madness Tournament this weekend going 5-1-0 through 6 games.

The Twisters dropped game 1 to the Brampton Canadettes before going on a 5 game win streak. In game 2 the Twisters squared off with the Stoney Creek Sabres where they picked up a 2-0 win, Nikki Deschenes earned the shutout in goal while Lily McLaughlin picked up the unassisted game winning goal. In game 3, the Bantam A team downed the Barrie Sharks 3-0 while outshooting them 25-6, goaltender Kayla Constantini picked up the shutout while the game winner was scored by Ciaryn Clipperton on the power play assisted by Carly McArther. After going 2-1-0 in round robin play the Twisters had rightfully earned their spot in the quarter finals against Vaughan. The Flames directed the puck at Deschenes 12 times through out the game but she turned all 12 shots aside for her second shutout of the tournament. Regulation time was not enough in the elimination match as Kylie Kerr scored the overtime winner with 42 seconds left to send the Bantam A team to the semi-finals on Sunday where they would face the Mississauga Chiefs in yet another overtime bound match. In the overtime period the Twisters earned a penalty shot with under a minute remaining. With the game on her stick McLaughlin fired home the game winning goal which sent the Twisters to the championship match. The championship game set up a rematch with the Sabres and the Twisters came out strong. In a back and forth match, Shayne Klimsiak scored two goals while Daniella Ernst scored a power play goal to seal the win for the Twisters as they defeated Stoney Creek 3-2 to claim their second gold of the season. The Bantam A team will be in action on April 5-7 in OWHA Provincial Championships.
