Minor Midgets Win Tournament in Orillia
The Dibbits Excavating QW Hawks Minor Midgets overcame a rough start to the tournament to capture the Gold in the finals.



QW's first game of the tournament seen them facing the hometown Orillia Terriers.  The Hawks came out with a good first two periods against a team that hadn't lost since their first game of the year. Down by a goal starting the third, the Hawks just couldn't keep up with the Terriers allowing 4 unanswered goals in the final frame.  Final score 7-2. 
After a good nights rest, QW came to play on Saturday. First up was Richmond Hill. The Hawks hadn't played the Stars since the first game of the year in their tournament. History repeated itself with a 5-3 win over the Stars.
Later in the day our opponent was the West Niagara Flying Aces.  Hawks came on top again with a commanding 6-1 win. This would secure a spot in Sunday's semi-finals.
Sunday morning would see a repeat of Saturday morning with Richmond Hill standing in our way of the finals. The Hawks came to play working hard all game. Final score Hawks 4, Stars 1. 
The Hawks now had an opportunity for redemption playing the home team, Orillia in the finals. The coaches weren't sure if the players had any gas left in the tank to finish out the tournament, but we were proven wrong. 
By far one of the best games this team has played this year, working hard both ways on the ice. QW came out with 3 goal lead before Orillia started clawing back and came with in 1.  The Hawks killed off a few penalties including a 5 on 3 to maintain the lead.  Great offence, great defense & great goal-tending gave the QW Hawks a 4-2 win to capture the championship.  
Congratulations Hawks!
