Bantam A Twisters Golden in Pittsburgh

Bantam A Twisters Golden in Pittsburgh


Last week in Twister action, two competitive teams made the trek to Pittsburgh to take part in the Thanksgiving Classic presented by Dicks Sporting Goods. The Midget A team competed in a tough 11 team division and dropped each of their matches by a wide margin. In Bantam news, the A team enjoyed a successful run in Pittsburgh picking up a 2-0-1 round robin record on route the playoff round. In the first round robin game the Bantam A team went out hard looking for their first points of the tournament, the team worked together and earned a 0-0 draw against the Aurora Panthers along with picking up no penalty minutes. As the day continued the Twisters were ready for game 2 and it showed as they picked up a close 2-1 win over the Flamborough Falcons, Victoria Price picked up a power play goal and Amy Robling picked up the other in the win. On day 2 of the tournament, the Bantam’s were looking for a bye to the semi final round on Sunday morning, they accomplished that goal with a 2-0 win against the Boston Shamrocks Sienna Bullen picked up a power play goal while Daniela Ernst picked up the other, both goals were unassisted. As Sunday rolled around the team was ready for a rematch with the Aurora Panthers after their earlier 0-0 tie to start the tournament. The Twisters would go on to win the game 2-0 with Robling picking up both goals. As the finals were just around the corner the Twisters knew the long drive home post game would be more enjoyable with a gold medal around their necks, the team put on their work boots against Detroit to earn a 2-0 championship win! The Bantam A team only allowed 1 goal against in 5 games while scoring 8 goals! Congratulations to all involved on a great tournament!
