North Stars learning to adjust to the AAA game at Peterborough Tournament
Posted by: Timmins Minor Peewee AAA on Mon Sep 10th 2018 11:49pm
The North Stars learned a great deal about AAA hockey at this past weekend's Pat Laroque Minor Peewee AAA Tournament in Peterborough. The team had their first experience in the more fast-paced and aggressive style of game against some of the best minor league hockey players in Ontario. The team opened the tournament with a loss against the host Peterborough Petes by a score of 5-3. Mavrick Boucher and Brant Romaniuk lead the way offensively with a goal and an assist each while Tyson Scott added the third goal. In Game Two the North Stars fell to the Seaway Valley Rapids by a score of 6-2. Once again Mavrick Boucher and Brant Romaniuk lead the way with a goal and an assist each. In Game three the North Stars dropped the decision to the Guelph Jr Gryphons 4-2. Ryan Koski netted a pair of goals. In Game Four the North Stars fell to the Whitby Wildcats 7-0. The North Stars took too many penalties which lead to three power-play goals for the Wildcats. A great experience for the North Stars as they head into their first regular season games in the Northern Ontario AAA Hockey League this coming weekend at the AAA Showcase Tournament in Sudbury.
