Cornwall Ontario – The Cornwall Atom B Typhoons earned a Silver medal in the BB division of the 2015 Oakville Hornets Classic Competitive Tournament.
The Typhoons tied the Burlington Barracudas 2-2 to open their first competitive tournament of the season. Cornwall suffered a tough 2-0 loss to the Clarington Flames in game 2 and finished the round robin with a 3-2 loss to the Etobicoke Dolphins.
The one point from the tie earned the Typhoons a 2nd place finish in their division and a berth in the quarter-finals.
The Typhoons blanked the Barracudas 1-0 in the quarter-final before upsetting the host Oakville Hornets 2-0 in the semi-final. That set up a rematch against the heavily favoured Etobicoke Dolphins.
The championship game was a back and forth contest with the teams finishing regulation tied 1-1. The Dolphins scored twice in the shootout for the championship.
“The girls played extremely well all weekend long,” said Typhoons head coach Ian Laplante. “We’re very pleased being able to walk away with a Silver medal.”
The Atom Typhoons begin league play this Sunday (September 27th) at home against the Russell Coyotes. Game time is 1:30pm at Benson Centre Pad 3.
