TNT Minor Bantam AE Advances to OMHA Semi Finals
In an outstanding 4 game series the young men of TNT defeated Barrie 1 White. TNT had not beaten this team all year. Our head to head record was 0-2-3.

Game 1 was played on Feb-8 at the NTRC. As  usual both teams came to play. At the end of regulation the score was tied 2-2. At the 6:03 mark our captain Brandon netted the game winner. Thanks goodness for that as the next two games were in Barrie and we didn’t want to go there down a game.


Game 2 was yet another battle which showcased the strong defense that Barrie has been playing all year. This game went to the Colts, 3 to 0. Series tied 1-1.


Game 3 was played during a blizzard, literally…and again we went into overtime. This one was a little shorter but Alex made sure we were going back home up 2 games to 1. He netted the winner at the 8:15 mark of OT.


Game 4 was played on Valentine’s day. Both teams looked a little nervous, it was do or die for Barrie and we didn’t want to play a game 5. The first period was dominated by TNT and we quickly went up 3 to 0. Barrie pressed hard and scored a goal to make it 3 to 1. The Colts were awarded a penalty shot which Carson stopped to keep the score 3-1. The second period was a back and forth affair which saw TNT score the only goal at 12:16. Back on the ice for third period, down 3 goals, Barrie made some line changes and said “not so fast TNT” and scored a goal at 10:22 to bring them within two goals. Barrie has a knack for coming back on us. We were up 4 to 0 in a regular season game and the Colts came back to tie that one! That's how good they are. Reminding our players of that fact the Tornados continued to press, no more goals were scored that period and the game ended 4 to 2.


TNT advances to the OMHA semifinals and will face either Peterborough or Northumberland.


The coaches and players of TNT would like to thank Barrie for 9 heart-stopping games this season and we wish them the best of luck in the York Simcoe playoffs. More importantly we would like to wish Patrick of the Colts a speedy recovery from his leg injury.
