Tigers Win the 2019 Wolverines Classic Tournament
Submitted By Chris MacEachern on Wednesday, November 27, 2019
Congratulations are extended to our Minor Midget AA Tigers for winning the 2019 Toronto Wolverines Classic this past weekend. 

The Tigers battled through a competitive round robin with an undefeated record (3-0-1), beating the Toronto Wolverines (5-1), Nickel City-Sudbury (2-0), Ottawa Valley (4-2), and the Streetsville Tigers, (1-1). 

The title game pitted the Tigers against a talented Ottawa Valley squad and it was a back and forth affair, eventually ending in a tie, 3-3. Post-regulation time, a five-minute, three-on-three, sudden death period was held, and again, the teams remained tied. Next up was a three-shooter sudden death shootout and the Tigers scored with their first two shooters and the Tiger's goalie shut down the two Ottawa Valley shooters, leading to the shootout victory for Aurora, 4-3. 

Despite a difficult start to the season (with an injury- shortened bench often leaving the team with 10-12 skaters), the Tigers have, most recently, returned to full health and strong play. The team went undefeated in the Irish Cup at the University of Notre Dame two weekends ago, and in league play, the Tigers are 4-1 in their past five games. 

The team would also like to congratulate the Atom "A" and the Minor Peewee "A" Tiger teams for also winning their respective Wolverines Classic Tournaments this past weekend as well. All told, the Aurora Tigers won three Wolverines Classic Tournaments on the weekend.
