Atom Sailorettes are 2009 BB Provincial Champions
Submitted By Joanne Johnston on Mon 04 20, 09
The Atom Sailorettes brought home the gold and are the #1 Atom  BB girls team in Ontario.   The girls went undefeated all tournament and outscored their opponents 16-4.

In round robin play, the Atom Sailorettes would face off against the Clearview Ice Kats.  The game would end 4-0 for the Sailorettes.  Friday night would see the girls defeat Yosemite Sam's girls, the Chatham Outlaws 3-0.  This would earn them #1 in their pool and a bye to the quarter final round.

The quarter final game would prove to be the toughest of the tournament against the St. Catharines Chaos.  After regulation time, the game would end 4-4.  It would take five periods to decide the game, but at 8:27 of the second 10-minute overtime, the Sailorettes would dig the puck past the Chaos netminder to earn their spot in the semi-finals.

The semi-final game would see the girls take on the Chatham Outlaws who had upset the Smith Falls Cubs in another quarter final round.  The Sailorettes were determined to play for gold and would send the Outlaws to the bronze medal game with a 2-0 win.

The 2009 Atom BB Provincial final would be played at 12:15pm on Sunday April 19, 2009.  It was the Goderich Atom Sailorettes vs The St. Thomas Panthers.  The game was an intense battle of skill and determination with  few shots on net but a lot of back and forth play.   The game remained scoreless until 9:17 of the 3rd period when the Sailorettes would open the scoring with a beautiful breakaway and top shelf razer past the the Panthers netminder.  The girls would celebrate their 1-0 lead.    The game would continue to be a see saw battle and a 2:36 of the 3rd, the Sailorettes would get called for a delay of game penalty, after a frantic scramble in their end.  The Panthers would pull their netminder for the 6th skater however, this would not work in their favour and with 1:07 left in the game, the Sailorettes would clear the puck into the Panther net to seal their victory.     Well done girls.  Undefeated in 5 games.

The season has been a tremendous success for the girls.  They won 5 tournament championships, were finalists at an "A" tournament, are Regional Silver Stick Champions, International Silver Stick Champions and OWHA Atom BB Provincial Champions. 

Their record for the season is 57-3-3. Remarkable!!

We knew we were the best Atom BB team in Ontario.  Now everyone knows it!
