every way, big leads, late comebacks and everything in between.

The Atom Reps began their quest for an OMHA title against Waterford with two league playoff games sandwiched in as well. The end result was a ticket to the next round and a five game unbeaten streak.

The first OMHA game found the team starting in Waterford on a monday night. The team continued their strong play from league playoffs and jumped out to a 4-0 lead on their way to an 8-1 victory. Goal scorers were Tyler (x3), Sam, Michael, Eric, Kyle and Connor. Assists went to Connor (x2), Michael (x2), Noah, Ben, Tyler, Eric and Easton. Colsyn was sharp in the goal when called on.

The next game saw the Stars flip back to the league playoffs against Hagersville. The team seemed to forget how hard they have to battle in the playoffs and found themselves trailing 1-0 after the first shift. Fortunately they found their legs and fought back to secure a 5-3 victory. Zach (x2), Noah, Eric and Michael found the back of the net with Eric (x2), Tyler (x2), Alex, Kyle, Noah and Easton picking up assists. Jonathan was strong in goal to pick up the win.

The second OMHA game saw Waterford making the drive to Wellesley. The Stars took the better part of the first period to finally beat the Waterford goalie who was making some great saves. After breaking the ice, the team kept up the pace and skated away with a 10-0 win. Goals went to Michael (x3), Eric (x2), Zach (x2), Connor (x2) and Sam. Assists went to Michael (x3), Connor (x2), Eric, Tyler, Evie, Ben, Noah, Alex and Easton. Colsyn made some early saves to buy the team time to find their game.

The next game saw the team travel to Simcoe looking to avenge their 1-0 loss earlier in the season. The team came out of the gate slowly again, failing to match the strength and pace of Simcoe over the first two periods to find themselves trailing 3-0 heading in to the third. Noah potted a goal early in the third and the Stars responded by playing a much better period against the regular season first place team. Despite playing better, the Stars found themselves down 3-1 with a minute remaining. Showing great determination, the Stars buried two goals in the final minute to complete a fantastic comeback and gain a tie. Goals went to Noah, Eric and Kyle with Eric (x2), Easton (x2), Noah and Michael getting assists. After falling behind early, Jonathan shut the door for the rest of the game making a number of big saves (including 2 breakaway saves!) to give the Stars a shot at the comeback.

The third OMHA game in Waterford found the Stars facing a team determined to battle to the very end and make the Stars earn their way to the next round. If the Stars thought they could just show up and win they were in for a surprise. The Waterford team came out flying, grabbed an early goal and took the game to the Stars for the first period. Only some good goaltending from Colsyn kept the score 1-1 after the first. The Stars started to find their game in the second and stretched their lead to 3-1 after two periods. The Stars finally came to life in the third an pumped 4 more goals in to the Waterford net to secure their spot in the next round of OMHA with a 7-1 win. Seven different players found the net in a balance attack with Noah, Kyle, Michael, Ben, Eric, Tyler and Sam scoring goals. Michael (x4), Kyle (x2), Ben, Noah, Eric, Evie and Connor had helpers. Colsyn picked up the win and showed a quick glove hand on a super save in the second.

The games will continue to be tough as the Stars move on in the OMHA play downs against Dunnville while still participating in the Southern Counties round robin games. Continuing to work hard and playing as a team will be key for the Stars to keep having success on the ice.

Go Stars Go!
