Tigers Atom Are Champions!
The Tigers Atom team won the Championship at the Hespeler Classic Tournament in Cambridge this weekend, finishing with an impressive 5-0 record in the tournament. At the end of the round robin on Saturday the Team was seeded 2nd overall (of 20 teams) with a perfect 3-0 record. The Tigers were then successful in an exciting and exhausting semi-final match on Sunday, which needed triple overtime to decide the winner! The final game was also close, but the Tigers competed hard with a 2-1 win.

 In an impressive show of Team spirit, the Tigers coaches and players agreed to not hand out any of the 5 individual “player of the game” awards, deciding instead to place the awards with the trophy, as a symbol of their commitment to Teamwork!

Congratulations to all the players and coaches for a great Championship weekend!
