2013 Peewee Champs
Submitted By Administrator on Saturday, August 24, 2013
The Cambridge Peewee Chiefs had two exciting final tournaments to end their 2013 lacrosse season.

In the zone playoff preliminaries, the Chiefs came out strong in their first game against the Kitchener-Waterloo Braves, besting them in a hard-nosed 5-4 decision.  In their second contest the Chiefs played well, however they came up short against a seasoned Owen Sound squad, getting edged 4-3. The third match, though chippy and tough, proved to be a decisive victory for the Chiefs as they trounced the Guelph Regals 8-2.  The semi-finals saw the Chiefs face off against KW for a second time, and there was no hesitation as the boys played a solid 45-minute game to eliminate the Braves by a score of 6-4.  In the final game, the Chiefs were given a chance at redemption as they took on the Owen Sound Stars in what could only be classified as a barnburner.  After 45 minutes of well-disciplined lacrosse the game remained tied 3-3, when in a brilliant individual effort Aiden McLeod won the opening draw and scored seconds into sudden death overtime to clinch the Tier 1 Zone 8 title. 

 
The Ontario Lacrosse Festival was the real prize at the end of the road and the Chiefs came to play, going 6-0 to win the provincial title.  In preliminaries the Chiefs once again displayed their dominance by handling squads from Caledon, Northumberland and Mimico by scores of 5-1, 9-3 and 4-1 respectively.  The quarterfinal game was the epitome of a character win as the Chiefs came out on top 6-4, though they had to battle a skilled Windsor Warlock squad and what some would call questionable officiating.  In the semi-finals the Chiefs easily dispatched of the Welland Warlords by a score of 8-3 and were on their way to the championship game.  The final game was nothing less than exciting as the Chiefs played a hungrier Caledon Bandits team they beat in round robin play.  The boys jumped out to a 3-1 lead early in the second, but Caledon would come within one after two periods.  Due to strong play from goaltender Wyatt Magwood, including a nail biting save with seconds left in the third, that is as close as the Bandits would get as the Chiefs went on to win 3-2.
 
Through perseverance, hard work and dedication the boys had an amazing season, and were completely deserving of their championship.  With strong leadership from captain Matt Hertner and goalie Wyatt Magwood, offensive powerhouses Shane Halliwell, Aiden McLeod and Collin Mathews, as well as defensive pivots Jagger O’Toole, Zach Gimmer and Tyler Kress, the boys set a winning expectation.  As coaches, we couldn’t have been more proud watching them hoist the provincial title.
