The Minor Atom Marlboros were victorious this past weekend at the 2016 Mississauga Shanahan International. The team avenged their 1-0 loss at the finals of the Bauer Motown Classic, only two weeks before, against their GTHL rival, the Toronto Junior Canadians.
The Marlboros went 3-0-1 during round robin play to win their division, with a tournament leading 25 GF and 4 GA.
It was an “all GTHL Sunday” for the team as they had to get through the Mississauga Senators and the Vaughan Kings, en route to their showdown with the Canadians in the championship game.
In the quarters and semis the Marlboros held their opponents off the scoresheet, winning both games 2-0 and 3-0 respectively. In the finals, the team brought their best effort in a thrilling 4-1 win. The kids showed resilience after going down 1-0, answering with 4 straight goals, including the game winner with 7 minutes left to play.
With 34 goals for and only 5 against in the 7 games, this was a true team effort and well deserved victory.
Well done boys!
