The Sherwin Williams Orillia novice Kings earned the gold medal for the second year in a row at the Braver than Brave Tournament in Oshawa earlier this month.

The novice Kings went undefeated at the tourney where their game continued to improve over the course of the weekend.

The first game against Newmarket Redbirds ended with a 10-3 win for the Kings. The second game versus the Oshawa Blue Hawks ended with an 8-3 win for Orillia.

In the third game, Orillia took on the Brampton Excelsiors coming out on top with a 7-4 triumph. They finished first in their pool and received a bye into the semi-finals where they took on Brampton once more. An impressive 8-2 win moved Orillia into the finals.

Oshawa beat Owen Sound to have another shot at the Orillia Kings for the championship. The final game was close during the first period before the Orillia Kings kicked it up a notch and won the final game by a score of 8-3.

Winning this tournament meant a lot to the team and parents.

Tucker Williams aka Braver than Brave passed away at age eight from cancer. The Braver than Brave Foundation is working with the Sick Kids Hospital to help other children affected by cancer.

The bench staff behind the winning squad: Marty Groves, Clay Hedges, Dan Lynch, Paul Tibbett and the manager, Amie Shropshire, are very proud of the boys.
