The Minor Midget went undefeated this weekend in the Waterloo Gold Puck Tournament. They opened the tournament by defeating the North Central Predators 4-3 followed by a 6-0 win over the Lambton Jr. Sting.

Saturday had the midgets playing the Soo Thunder and they took the game 4-1.  They needed a win over the Central Ontario Wolves to claim first place in their division, and the Lakers did just that with a 3-2 win to land them in the semi final. On Sunday morning, the Lakers faced league rival Waterloo Wolves and they found themselves down early in the second period but with some timely scoring the Lakers would prevail 3-2 and head into the finals. The final game was once again against a league rival, the Kitchener Junior Rangers.  The Lakers would score a goal in the third period and score an empty net goal with time winding down to claim the Title.

The Major Bantam were also in tough this weekend.  After defeating the North Bay Trappers 1-0 and losing to the Kitchener Junior Rangers 1-0 they needed a win coming up against a strong Hamilton Bulldogs team. The Bantams came out strong and defeated the Bulldogs in a close 4-3 game.   This put the Lakers into position, with a good game against the Waterloo Wolves they could they could advance to the semi finals. A hard checking defensive game was played and the game was left at a 1-1 tie. This allowed the Lakers to advance to the semi final as they finished fourth overall.

On Sunday they played the Cambridge Hawks and defeated them 1-0 to send them into the finals. Once again they would come up against the Kitchener Junior Rangers this time wanting revenge for the only loss they had suffered during the round robin.  Once again the Lakers came out with an excellent defensive effort from the entire team and would defeat the Rangers 3-0 to claim the tournament.

The Huron Perth Lakers Executive would like to congratulate the teams for an amazing weekend and thank the coaching staff, players and parents for their dedication to the game of hockey.
