Minor Midget AE, Tourney Winners!!!
The TNT Minor Midget AE's got their season off to a terrific start by putting together a great effort this past weekend to win the Orangeville Fall Classic.  
This is our second team to win at this tournament.

The tournament started with a hard fought 3-1 victory over the Richmond Hill Stars on Friday. This was followed up with a 5-1 victory over the Milton Winterhawks on Saturday afternoon. On Saturday evening the boys put in a solid effort in taking a 2-0 lead over the Orangeville Flyers before falling behind 3-2.  With the goalie pulled the boys rallied in attempt to tie the game before giving up an empty netter and losing 4-2.

The team qualified for the semi finals on Sunday afternoon and faced off against rivals the Georgina Blaze. In another hard fought battle the Tornados won the game 4-2, sealing the victory with an empty netter in the final minute. This set up a rematch with the Orangeville Flyers in the finals that afternoon. This game was a thriller and was tied 2 to 2 after regulation time.  The 4 on 4 overtime was scoreless so the game went to a shootout. After no goals by either side on the first three attempts, the shootout became a sudden death shootout. The Tornadoes scored a goal on their fourth attempt while the Flyers did not score on their fourth attempt. Final score 3-2 Tornados.

Way to go boys, great victory, great effort, great start to the season!
