The Highland Storm U18 Tom Prentice and Sons rep team are on their way to the OMHA championship in Halton Hills Easter weekend.

The series was tied one game to one when the Storm and Orono Leafs clashed at the A.J. LaRue Arena March 21 for the penultimate game. The previous two games had gone into double overtime, so this promised to be a tough, physical matchup.

The Storm came out with speed and pressured the puck, leading to Aiden Perrott scoring in the first period.

Josh Scheffee scored in the second period, assisted by Brechin Johnston.

Solid defence and hard work kept the Leafs off the board until the third.

But the Storm put the pedal down and kept the goals coming. Beckham Reynolds fired one in, with two more from Perrott, assisted by Cooper Coles and Alex Hendry. The final score was 5-1 Storm, to give the team a 2-1 series win.

Team manager Amber-Lee Johnston said “the coaching staff, parents and families are extremely proud of the U18 rep team and wish them all the best at the OMHA tournament.”
