Submitted By jshiell on Wednesday, November 9, 2016
The Major Atom Lakers travelled to suburban Chicago the weekend of Nov. 4th-Nov. 6th to compete in the Bauer World Invitational. The boys came out strong in their first 2 games on Friday, first beating the Rhode Island Saints 6-1, followed by a 9-3 victory over the Geneva Illinois Cyclones.Saturday morning the boys were forced to battle back late for a 5-5 tie against the Kirkwood Stars from Missouri. Down 5-3 with the goalie pulled, these Laker boys scored 2 goals in the last 36 seconds to tie the game. This tie was crucial as it guaranteed the one seed for the playoff round. 


The playoff round started with a 6-1 win over Korviov Hockey School of ColoradoSaturdayevening. 
Quarter finals started earlySundaymorning at7:30amvs. The Cleveland Barons, a 4-1 victory for the Lakers.
In the semifinal our boys would face a familiar foe in the Kitchener Jr. Rangers. These two league rivals battled back and forth, but the Lakers had a late lead erased by the Rangers forcing a 4 on 4 overtime. The Lakers were able to control the play early in the OT period and were fortunate to strike early and punch their ticket to the finals.
In the final the Lakers faced the undefeated Illinois Falcons. A very competitive game early as teams exchanged goals throughout the first 2 periods. The Lakers depth and desire started to show in the 3rd and was to much for the Falcons, our boys skated away with a 6-3 victory. 
A very tough weekend for the boys, 7 games, 3on Sunday, finishing with a 6-0-1 record. The boys and their Laker families represented the organization, the Alliance and Canada wonderfully all weekend. This included a Laker coach and a Laker mom rushing to help a injured Rhode Island player. Both layed on the cold ice stabilizing the player for 15 minutes waiting for the ambulance. Happy to report the player was fine and The Rhode Island coaches and fans were very appreciative of our Laker family for the help. 
Well done and congratulations to all.
