Riding the play of goaltenders Coyle McMahon and Jackson Lawrie The Kingsville Brewers won the AA division at the Draftday Niagara Battle tournament this past weekend. "Our results prove our kids can stack up against any region." said head coach Brett Oliphant, a former OHL'er and Windsor Lancer.
The Brewers are a select team pooling talent from the A/AA levels in the Bluewater League. They went 3-0 in pool play and put the squeeze on defensively in a dominant 5-0 win over the Draftday Regional All-Stars in the final to win gold.
"I am so happy to be part of this team." said defenceman Vincent Pullo who plays for the Tecumseh Eagles. "Playing against players from around Ontario and from the U.S. was awesome."
Kingsville Brewery sponsors the team offering kids the opportunity to play spring hockey. "We're looking forward to our next challenge in London in a few weeks." Oliphant said.
