TRAPPERS ROUNDUP October 26, 2015
Trappers AAA Roundup
The BDI Minor Peewee AAA Trappers took part in the annual West Ferris Minor Hockey Early Bird Tournament this past weekend in North Bay. The Trappers began play Friday afternoon against Cumberland. The Trappers never really found their footing in this game falling 6-1 to the Ottawa area club. Chase Lefebvre had the lone goal with the assist going to Callum Craft. Jake Fullerton had a strong game on the blue line and was chosen player of the game for the Trappers. Game two saw the North Bay squad take on Seaway Valley from Cornwall. The game was a tight checking affair and a goaltenders battle. Trapper goalie Caelan McAuliffe was outstanding in the North Bay goal frustrating the Seaway shooters on several occasions enroute to a 1-0 shut out win. Dallas Landriault had the Trapper goal on a feed from Brett Richardson. For his shut out effort McAuliffe received a goaltenders award and Landriault was awarded player of the game. On Saturday evening the Trappers faced the Temiskaming Shores Puckhounds and battled to a 1-1 draw. Both teams played a very aggressive brand of hockey with each team exchanging scoring chances regularly. The Trappers displayed a great team effort on the penalty kill through out the game and had outstanding goaltending from Andrew Robillard, who was the Trapper player of the game. Lefebvre had his second goal of the weekend with help from line mates Craft and Cam Harwood. Semi final action Sunday morning was a rematch of Saturday evening’s game vs the Puckhounds. Once again the game was a back and forth match with stellar goaltending for both teams as the game was scoreless heading into the third period. Unfortunately for the Trappers the Puckhounds managed to find the net twice late in the third advancing them to the final. Owen Either was solid on the Trapper blue line and was selected player of the game for the Trappers.
The Lucky 13 Major PeeWee Trappers travelled to Greater Sudbury for a weekend set against the Nickel City Sons. The first game was a tight one with the Trappers coming back from a 3-0 deficit to tie it up half-way into the third period. Unfortunately, a Nickel City goal in the last 1:30 sealed the deal for a Sons 4-3 victory. Nickel City took advantage of a short Trappers roster in the second game, winning 5-0. The Trappers came back Sunday with a stronger effort but fell short as Nickel City scored two in the third to take a 4-0 win.
