Mt. Forest Weekly Recap
Submitted By Kevin Rice on Mon 12 08, 14
A quick recap of the past week in Mt. Forest minor hockey.

Novice Local League
On Tuesday last week the Novice LL lost a hard fought game to West Grey 2-1.  We hit a few posts and the West Grey goalie made some great saves that were the turning points of the game.  We bounced back on Sunday with a strong team performance against Walkerton #2, defeating them 4-0.  Manon R. with the shutout.

Novice Rep


This past Saturday the Rams played in the Minto tourney.

Their first game was against the Wasaga Beach Stars, the players fought hard but came up short losing to a very strong team from the north 5-0. The Rams were back on the ice a few hours later to play the Ripley Wolves. The team was able to capitalize on their scoring chances and dominated the game to walk away with a 5-0 victory. our team now qualified for the B final against the hometown Minto Mad Dogs. Unfortunately, the players had to get right back on the ice and go to work again with no rest. After spotting the Minto team a 3-0 lead the players dug deep in the 3rd period to knot the game 3-3 and force sudden death. Minto was able to pressure our team early and snuck one past our goalie to claim victory. This game too as the previous was dominated by the Rams, the entire team looks forward to a rematch in the future. All of the players can and should feel proud of their efforts and sportsmanship in the tournament.
On Sunday the team travelled south for a 2:30 tilt versus Goderich. The home team jumped to an early 1-0 lead in the first. Our players didn't give up and by the end of the first they had clawed their way back to take the lead 2-1. The second period was scoreless with both teams trading chances. The Rams continued the 3rd with aggressive play and knotched 2 more goals in the early minutes. The remainder of the third saw strong defensive play from the defense and strong goaltending to give the Rams a well deserved 4-1 victory on the road.
Congratulation players on a solid weekend of hockey. GO RAMS GO!!!!

Peewee Local League

THE PEEWEE LL TEAM TRAVELED TO  KEADY TO PLAY THE TCDMHA #2 TEAM.
AFTER A SCORELESS 1ST PERIOD TCDMHA JUMPED OUT TO A 2-0 LEAD.
THE RAMS RESPONDED WITH 1 BEFORE TRHE END OF THE 2ND. 
THE REBELS ADDED 3 MORE GOALS IN THE 3RD FOR A 5-1 FINAL. RAMS
 GOALIE ALIAS T. PLAYED A GREAT GAME IN NET DESPITE THE 5-1 LOSS.

Peewee C girls win one, lose one

The Mount Forest peewee C girls split their two games this week, including a 4-1 romp over Lucknow-Wingham on Saturday and a 5-2 loss to Teeswater on Monday.

 

The net result is a team within striking distance in their tightly-contested division. With a 3-4-2 (won-lost-tied) league record, the Rams are two points out a three-way tie for second place.

 

On Saturday, the Mount Forest girls got their first look at Lucknow-Wingham and came away with a 4-1 victory.

 

Chloe K. got the Rams on the score sheet first, firing home a rebound on a nice three-way passing play from Haven L. and atom call-up Chaise M.

 

Lucknow tied it in the second as Mount Forest goalie Alyssa V. was screened on the play.

 

Morgan F. potted the game winner early in the third when Jayde M.'s point shot looked like a pinball, bouncing first off a Lucknow defender and then off Morgan's shoulder into the net.

 

Chaise M. made it 3-1 on a scramble around the net when the puck slid through the Lucknow goalie and slowly trickled into the net.

 

Haven L. gave the hosts a 4-1 on a beautiful solo rush, dashing down the right side.

 

She faked a shot which prompted the Lucknow goalie to go down. But faked is the key word as Haven hung onto the puck and swung behind the net for a wraparound.

 

Jayde M. earned the Hard Hat Award for her tireless efforts, especially on the powerplay while Morgan received the Super Girl cape for proving she was the girl of steel on her ricochet goal.


The Rams reported to Teeswater on Monday night for, well, a stinker of a game.


Mount Forest fell 5-2 to a solid South Bruce club in a classic case of what could go wrong did go wrong.
 
Through no fault of their own, the Mount Forest girls were bedeviled by persistent team sickness (Hello, The Chloes!), new illnesses (Morgan, you OK?), a missing regular (Presley, how you feeling, girl?) and a couple bad bounces.
 
The game of hockey can be a cruel BFF.
 
We still love our BFF through thick and thin, though.
 
Rams relentless captain Haven L. earned the Hard Hat Award yet again on Monday for her tremendous effort in all three zones. And the toughest player in hockey (pound for pound) Shea M. once again garnered the Red Cape for her heroic efforts.
 
Monday night's match indicated, if nothing else, there are plenty of things in the game we can't control including an opportunistic opposition, an entirely too late start time and a couple unfortunate brain cramps. But the one thing we can control is how hard we work.
 
And for that reason alone, the Mount Forest girls, The Hardest Working Team in Hockey, will continue to be just that on and off the ice.


The Rams are back in action on Tuesday when we visit first-place Chatsworth Township in Keady.

Our next home start is Thursday when Grey Highlands visit. Game time at the Mount Forest Community Centre is 7:30 p.m.

 Bantam Local League
The Bantam Boys (and Girls) travelled to Clifford on Thursday night and had a hard fought battle against Walkerton which resulted in a 3-3 tie.
Heading up to Walkerton for a Saturday afternoon tilt against the other Local League team saw the Rams play what many felt was an uphill battle with some questionable officiating which resulted in some suspensions for a few of the boys.
Tough game that seen the Rams being dumped 3-1
Short staffed back in Mt. Forest Sunday night against West Grey saw Captain Parker S electrify the home crowd with some dazzling moves that resulted in a 4 goal night. Nate Z. had the other tally in a 5-3 Rams Victory.
 Keaton F. has been on fire the last few games giving the rams chances to win every game. 
He also is a perfect 1-1 in stopping penalty shots as he made his first one at a key point Sunday night in Mt. Forest
Way to go !
All players are starting to show some great improvement, and really starting to gel as a team just in time as we have some key games coming up including a big tournament in a few weeks in London.
