Orillia Tourney Gets Monkey off the Back of Sailors
Submitted By sdoherty on Sat 02 25, 17
Taking a break from the play-offs, the Sailors travelled to Orillia for the Canadian Tire House League Festival on Family Day Weekend.  This proved to be a worthwhile tourney as it gave the Sailors the opportunity to break the goose egg and get a rabid monkey off their back.  The Sailors managed their first win in five games by defeating the Almaguin Ice Devils in their Sunday afternoon match-up.     

Centre Spencer W managed to score the first goal of the game which lifted the curse off the under-performing Sailors who had not scored a goal in their previous four outings.  Lifted by that goal – the Kinsmen crew seemed to recapture some of their earlier-season form.  Spencer would go on to score one more goal, while Captain Adam R and defensemen Kate J managed a goal each on route to a 4-1 win!  Winger Jesse V registered the game’s lone assist which was also the first assist of 2017 for the Sailors so this game was a big positive for the team!  

Unfortunately, the Sailors pulled a crappy schedule for Monday and ended up with an 8:00 am game versus the Lincoln Front Row Sports team.  This was a close game and the Sailors played pretty well but the Lincoln goalie turned away all but one shot when Adam R scored the only Sailor’s goal in this 2-1 loss.  This was an interesting game to watch – some real die-hard fans in the stands for the Lincoln team…  

Finally, the tourney ended with a 6-0 loss versus Bradford on Monday afternoon.  The Sailors started off ok in this one but then took penalty after penalty and ended up playing most of the game short-handed.  It didn’t help that Bradford was also awarded a penalty shot which they capitalized on.   

In the end, the Sailors were completely out-played registering only one shot on net in the entire game.  If it is any consolation – Bradford went on to win the Pool A division.  Nonetheless, a 6-0 loss was a sad way to end the weekend given that the team had some good moments in the tournament.  All in all – it was a good weekend for the team and the parents – a big thanks to our coaches Joe Brenner and Tim Powell, our trainer Doug Roulston and our Manager Erin Wilson for all their work pulling this together.   Having said that, I won’t “be-heading” to the Barrie Travelodge again any time soon!
