Barrie Colts Minor PeeWee Bring Home Silver
Submitted By Connie R on Tuesday, March 21, 2017

The Minor PeeWee AAA Barrie Colts had a fairy tale 2016-2017 season! Under the experienced leadership and guidance of Head Coach Cory Keenan, Assistant Coaches Steve Mercer and Mark Cardiff, Trainer Brian Carroll and Manager Connie Rehkopf, the team was successful in winning the west side of the ETA, and later triumphed in capturing a birth to represent the ETA at the OMHA Championships this past weekend in Oakville.


The team arrived ready for battle and handily won three of their four round robin games to secure a position in the gold medal game versus the reigning OMHA champion and host city, Oakville. 

The game was a true battle; hard fought goals and back and forth play between these two evenly matched teams. A score of 2-2 persisted well into the third period where, with less than 4 mins to go, Oakville went ahead by a goal during a power play. The team fought hard through some adverse conditions however was unable to answer to that one goal and lost by a tight score of 3-2. 

The culture surrounding this team was fantastic; from the organized and efficient coaching staff, to the group of dedicated and enthusiastic players, their supportive parents, siblings and of course the entourage of grandparents who were present right to the end…this team was solid! 

The team would like to thank their sponsor, Rockbrune Brothers Movers for their ever-present support, along with the Barrie AAA organization, and the bench staff who guided this team over the many months of preparation and training.  6642 CHAMPS next year!
