The heartbreak of a tournament tie-breaker
2015-04-09
by Randy Pascal

A quick glance at the standings on the website for the 2015 All-Ontario Peewee "AAA" Championships currently shows the Nickel City Sons holding down fourth place, the final berth in the semi-finals set for Friday.

This does the Sons absolutely no good at all. The reality is that because of their head to head loss to the York Simcoe Express on April 8th, the Nickel City crew are actually sitting fifth overall, flipping spots with the Express team that, at the moment, occupies that placement on the website.

The Sons were effectively eliminated from playoff contention in a morning encounter on earlier today, beaten 4-1 by the Oakville Rangers. Goals by Cameron Tolani, Luke Evangelista, Marcus Sang and Zack Terry staked the Rangers to a 4-0 lead, with Gavin Brown breaking the shutout bid with under five minutes to play.

The disapointing loss dropped the Nickel City record to 2-3-1, a very competitive mark for the NOHA representatives. Unfortunately, even though York Simcoe subsequently found themselves thumped 9-3 by the first place Toronto Marlies, their record of 2-3-1 trumped that of the Sons.

A 4-2 York Simcoe win over Nickel City made the difference in the end, as the Sons head back north, missing out on a chance to compete for a medal by the slimmest of margins.
