COW Minor Midgets hitting their stride into the ETA's
Your Central Ontario Wolves had a very successful team effort last weekend at the Steve Richey Peterborough Petes AAA Midget Showcase.

The Wolves finished their round robin division with a record of 4-0. They started the weekend with the a win against the Sun County 3-0 which saw Gavin Bradt record a solid shut-out. Next was a 3-2 tilt against the Soo Thunderbirds and on Saturday the Wolves suited up against a very tough London Jr Knights club, currently ranked inside the OHL Cup Top 10 rankings, but the boys showed grit and held on for a 3-2 win. A win that secured them 1st place. The final round robin game of the division, although not material, still saw the boys play a solid team game and secure a 3-1 Victory. 

Sunday morning was a final matchup vs another top 10 team, The Sudbury Jr Wolves. The COW Wolves power play was clicking early and the team found themselves up with a 4-1 lead. Sudbury slowly chipped away to make it 4-3 before Henry Brock scored into an empty net sealing the contest at 5-3.

Gavin Bradt made several key saves in this game. Trevor Urquhart scored 2, Henry Brock scored 2 and Cam Kosurko added a single. 

The win meant a trip to the finals where the COW Wolves met The Ottawa Capitals. The Capitals is an All-Star team made up of the Ottawa regions best talents and surely to produce several 1st round OHL picks.

The COW Wolves were down 2-1 going into the third but gave way to the Capitals in the third, who won the Championship 4-1. Gavin Bradt was excellent in goal once again and Joe Boice scored the loan COW Wolves goal. 

Over the tournament Cam Kosurko had 5 goals, Henry Brock 4, Joe Boice 3, Jack Staniland 2, Trevor Urquhart 2, Liam Goreski 1, and Carter Kimble 1.  Both goalies played great in goal. Blake Marsh allowed 3 goals in 2 round robin games and Gavin Bradt allowed 9 goals over 4 games played including 1 shutout and was named Tournament MVP for our team. In such a successful tournament it is hard to identify individuals as all the players contributed in a positive way.

A strong PP and PK was a big contributor to last weekends success which we hope continues for the Minor Midget Wolves as they begin their ETA Playdown.

Good Luck and GO.WOLVES.GO
