U14 MD Blue Hespeler Pre Season Classic Champion
Submitted By Deb Larsen on Thu 10 13, 22
Congratulations to the Markham Waxers U14 MD Blue team, who opened the season with a championship victory in the Hespeler Pre Season Classic on October 9, 2022.  

The Waxers started off Friday morning with a resounding 7-1 win against the Vaughan Rangers Blue team.  The team was surprised Friday evening by a tough Barrie Colts team and lost 3-1.  After beating the Vaughan Rangers Red team 4-1 to finish up the round robin, the Waxers again faced the Vaughan Rangers Blue team in the elimination round.  Vaughan came to play on Saturday afternoon, but the Waxers prevailed 4-1. 

This brought the Waxers to the Sunday morning final.  A rematch against the Barrie Colts, a 7:30 am Hespeler puck drop that got some Markhamites out of bed before 5:00 am to make the game.  Powered by stingy back-checking, tough defense, and solid goalkeeping, the Waxers handed the Colts a nail-biting 1-0 shutout to win the championship trophy! 

“This was a well-earned tournament victory for this team,” said one team parent. “There is a nucleus of kids on this team that had a tough season last year and it is great to see them get off on the right foot with their new teammates.”
