Congratulations Atom Reps - OMHA Champions
Submitted By Stephanie Mason on Sunday, March 24, 2019
This past Saturday, the Atom Rep Ayr Flames faced their final and incredibly worthy opponent, Saugeen Shores Storm in the OMHA Atom B finals.

The series was sitting at 2-0 for Ayr, so this was do or die for the Storm. Saugeen came out strong, ready to put out our Flames...


As fans of both teams anxiously watched, the Storm kept the puck in the Flames zone for the better part of the first period. We quickly realized this could be anyone’s game.

The first ended with 0-0 on the board thanks to strong defence from Brody, Carter, Spencer, and Andrew with multiple solid saves from Flames #1, JS Deacon.

Shortly into the second, Ayr fans were able to breathe a sigh of relief as Kaufman and Keith set up Spencer Ross to do what only few can. Fans watched in awe as Spence flawlessly put puck to net from the blue line.

Saugeen shook it off, determined to get the goal back and even up the board. However, Spence’s goal seemed to add a motivational kick. Lucky Cunningham-Louks and Hudson fought with effort and determination to keep the puck in Storm zone, while Matthew dug furiously in an attempt to move the puck up the ice, Noah, Max, DJ and Deacon continued to skate strong and hard.

As the clock in the third began to tick, McKay and Garchinski set up Culp, who successfully managed to sneak the puck right past the Storm goalie.

Despite their encouraging fanfare and strong game, Saugeen was running out of time.

JS stood strong, doing his best to deter every shot and keep the Flames safe. Despite the teams best efforts, Saugeen was not letting us leave their house without one on the board. With the board reading 2-1, JS brushed the Storm goal off and stood strong for the remainder of the game.

As Ayr teammates continued to played with cohesion and effort, the final buzzer rang with a 2-1 win for the Flames. Fans on each side stood and cheered for both teams, with awe and pride for all players.

A special mention is owed to fellow #redhats, Atom Rep AP’s, D’Arcy Mason and Lukas Waschenko. When they weren’t on the ice alongside their team, both boys could often be found in the stands, cheering everyone on, making both their team and hometown proud with their consistent camaraderie and support. 

These boys are so much more than hockey players. At the end of the day, their accomplishments this season are a true reflection of their deep rooted bond and respect for one another. They leave their shortcomings at the door,  win as team, lose as a team, and have a blast along the way.

The  coaches, parents and team have been consistently humbled by our village and all of the support this season. We only hope to make Ayr half as proud as everyone has made our team.

Thanks to all for bringing the heat.

Until next time…..GO FLAMES GO!!!
