It was a historic end to the season for the
Essa Minor Hockey Association.
The league was in full celebration
mode after its Atom Rep and AE teams were both crowned Ontario Minor Hockey
Association (OMHA) champions on home ice.
The powerhouse squads won back-to-back during the final games played Sunday, March 25th in Angus. The arena was decorated in black, white and red and Eagles pride was in full force.
The Atom AE team defeated the Ilderton Jets 3-2 at 2:30pm, and during the next match at 3:30pm, the Atom Rep team bested the Ripley Wolves 3-1. Two OMHA champions in one afternoon.
The six-game series started March 17.
“This was a huge day for our association,” said the league’s ice convener Tiffany Hart. “Winning an OMHA is a big deal but having two teams win them back to back may be unheard of.”
Both teams enjoyed a record season with 33 wins and five losses.
