Nepean D'Oh-Nuts win the 2017-18 Bantam B Super Championship
The journey began with our first practice last September and here we are six months later, as bantam B house league champions.
Although the boys were all superstars in our eyes, we started with good players willing to play unselfishly, which transformed us from being a group of good, individual hockey players, into an extraordinary team.
Thank you gentlemen for providing us with so many amazing memories during this unforgettable ride, and here's hoping the friendships and experiences we shared along the way leave a lasting impression.
So now it's time to part ways and move on to other endeavours like baseball, basketball, football, Fortnite, or whatever activity floats your boat.
And here's hoping that years from now, when someone says .... "What was that Bantam hockey team with the funny name back in 2018?" ... that you pause for a moment and say... "We were the Doh'Nuts, and we were champions!!"

Congratulations to the Nepean Chargers for winning GOLD at the Almonte tournament on January 28. The Chargers went 2-1 in the round robin before winning the semi-final 4-1 over the Westmount Wings on Sunday morning. In the final the Chargers faced off against a strong Almonte Thunder team who had beat them 5-1 on Friday afternoon. The game was tied 1-1 through regulation and then in overtime Jacob Elyea made some big saves for the Chargers before Nolan Beelen banged in a rebound for the OT winner.
The win capped off a great weekend of hockey in Almonte for the Chargers.
Congratulations to Owen, Nicolas C, Isaac, Gabriel, Riley, Sebastien, Charlie, Kaiden, Tyson, Nolan, Nicholas L, Alex, Kaius, Lucas, Mason, Jacob and our coaches Jeff, John and Matt.

Playing with a total “team first” mentality and a combination of stellar goaltending, stingy defense and an explosive offense, the D'oh-Nuts finished with a record of 5 wins no losses, including 25 goals for,2 goals against and 3 shut-outs. The Championship game against Nepean KFC went to double overtime before Nick B picked up the puck in his own end, raced down to the other end and was able to slide it in under the goalie with 49 seconds remaining.
Support from family and friends in the stands throughout every minute of every game certainly did not go unnoticed by the players.
Everything from the cow bell, bugle, vocal cords, red goal light, huge banner and even our Homer Simpson mascot contributed to motivating the boys to victory.
When all was said and done, the only thing from the stands that shone brighter than the goal light was the pride in the parents faces as the boys were awarded their gold medals.
Well done lads, well done indeed.

The Novice A Team F team were finalists at the Leitrim tournament in January. The boys went 3-0 in the round robin, only allowing 3 goals against in total. They finished first overall in the round robin, received a bye to the semis and played Ottawa East, winning a hard fought match. They were outmatched in the final by les loups des collines from Quebec.
They played hard and great as a team. I think every single player received at least one point in the tournament.

The Eganville Midget tournament was exciting! Nepean Team E lost their first and only game to Deep River, the team that won A side! It was a close game 2-3 for Deep River until the last minute when they scored one more goal on an empty net to win against Nepean Team E 2-4. That put the Nepean Team E on the “B” side.
Their second game was just as exciting, winning again Nepean Team I. They were tied at the end of the game and won in over time 3-2! Good game Nepean Team I!
The finals were against Richmond. The score was 1-0 for us until they tied it up in the last 2 mins of the last period. In the last minute of play Nepean Team E scored to win the game and Side B!
Congratulations to MBTE!

On January 13-15 the Bantam A Chiefs traveled to Bradford to participate in the Blue and Gold Bantam Roster Select Tournament. The team got off to a great start winning their first game 7-0. The boys went on to win all of their round robin games never trailing in a period! They allowed only 2 goals against and found themselves finishing atop of the pack in first place. The championship game saw them face tough competition from Carleton Place. Being up by a goal with 2:30 left on the clock, the Chiefs found themselves fighting a 5 on 3 penalty kill. Carleton Place got the tying goal but we were able to hold off the remaining Carleton Place powerplay. With less than 30 seconds on the clock, our penalty ended, and we faced over time! But the boys dug deep and with 7.4 seconds left on the clock, we drove the puck in deep into traffic. The go-ahead goal was scored giving the Chiefs the Championship. Thank you to our manager extrordinaire Annabel for organizing a great weekend, our great coaching staff for keeping the boys focused and the parents for all of their support and cheers!
Congratulations to the Bantam A Chiefs for a great weekend!

After winning their first game, they lost a close match against the South Dundas Lions 2-1. Needing a big win to advance to the semi-finals, the team responded with a 6-1 victory over Kanata. Following a solid 3-1 semi-final win over another Kanata team, they faced their opening round nemesis, South Dundas, in the final. After coming back from two 1 goal deficits, Nepean forced overtime tied 2-2. Two rounds of overtime didn't settle things, but the first two Aardvarks players scored in the shootout, securing victory by a “nose”.
