The U9LL Bernie Nicholls Tournament was a great success for the Highland Storm.

After losing the first game of the tournament on Saturday morning, the Storm buckled down and won the next two in dominating fashion to secure its position in the semi-finals on Sunday.

The morning game was a tight matched, nerve-wracking affair against the Kawartha Coyotes. Great goaltending on both ends of the ice yielded a 2-2 tie late into the third period, until Ethan Draker and Chase Casey put the Storm ahead with two minutes left, sealing the deal.

The A championship game was a well-fought affair. After dropping three goals in the first, the home team rallied to tie the game in the second.

A see-saw of chances in the third was unfortunately capped off with a late marker that the Storm couldn’t erase.

The coaching staff is very proud of the kids on their silver medal. Great job Storm.
