Bantam Reps Capture WOAA Championship
Submitted By Claude Leroux on Sunday, April 1, 2018
Cyclone fans went to Palmerston Arena Tuesday night expecting a contest.  After losing to the MadDogs twice in the regular season, the Cycs knew they had to dig deep to perform in the playoffs.  But if there is one thing this team knows, it’s how to dig deep when it counts.

The first game at the SKMC saw the Cycs drop a 4-3 decision in overtime.  Unphased, the boys rallied to beat the MadDogs in Palmerston 3-2...also an overtime win.  With the two teams so evenly matched, it’s no wonder the fans expected to be there for a fourth period Tuesday night.  What they witnessed instead was a slaughter.


The MadDogs struck early in the first, sneaking one past the defence.  Some penalty trouble for the Cycs made it tough for them to strike back, and the first period would end with the MadDogs ahead.


That’s when the Cyclones would pull away.  A goal early in the second gave the players the boost of energy they needed.  By the end of the second, the score was 5-1 for the Cyclones and the MadDogs were visibly rattled heading into the third.


Struggling with penalty trouble of their own, the MadDogs rolled over by the time the third started.  The excitement in the stands was mounting as the Cyclones found themselves spending the final third of the game alternating between the penalty kill and the power play. The Cyclones would pot two more by the end of the game, making the Listowel Bantam Reps the winner of the WOAA Gregg Division Championship, proving once again, that they are not to be underestimated.


Congratulations to the players, parents and particularly the coaching staff; Josh Keil, Tyler Stewart, Nate Bramhill and Justin Graham.  Thanks for a great season!
