Congratulations to the Nepean Novice A Dominators who won the Canadian Hockey Enterprises tournament in Montreal 15-17 March 2013. The Dominators went 1-1-2 in the round robin, good enough for a second place finish and a berth in the semi-finals. After a hard fought game the Dominators came out on top 4-3. During the finals, the Dominators were down 2-0 and then 3-1 before tying the game 3-3 with 3 mins left. After a sudden death 4 on 4 five min period resolved nothing, the game came down to a shoot-out. The Dominators goalie came up huge making all three stops and the third shooter, Ryan Robichaud, scored the game winner. The Dominators would like to thank their parents for their vocal support and braving the Montreal traffic.

The Nepean Atom B Lethal Lightning went 5 and 0 to win the 9th Annual Capital House League Championships March 8th to 10th at the Bell Sensplex. Down 3 to 1 late in the 3rd period of the Championship game to the undefeated Stittsville Atomic Rams the boys dug deep and scored to make it 3 - 2 with 3 minutes to go. With one minute to go we pulled the goalie for the extra attacker and scored the equalizer with just 3 seconds left on the clock. Overtime finalized nothing and we had to go to a shootout. We scored with our 5th shooter and our goalie came up big with a quick glove hand save to seal the win.
Thanks to all the very loud parents and fans for your support and cheering all weekend long.
