Novice A September Showdown Champs
Submitted By Deb Larsen on Thursday, September 27, 2018
The Markham Waxers Novice A team, coached by Sal Paglialunga, Tim Watkinson and George Arabian, along with manager/trainer Zach D'Abreu, earned the gold medal in the Waxers September Showdown tournament during the weekend of September 7 to 9, 2018. 

The team back-checked and battled their way through the tournament, going undefeated over the course of 5 tournament games. 

Our semi-final game was a close match-up with Barrie.  The Waxers opened up a 4-1 lead in the second period, only to see Barrie narrow the lead to 4-3 in the third.  However the Waxers held on for victory, playing great team defense and displaying a tireless work ethic.

The final had us in another tightly contested affair vs. Whitby, a team we had previously tied 2-2 in the round robin.  This time the Waxers prevailed with a 3-2 victory, scoring the tournament clinching goal with only 28 seconds remaining in the game!

Congratulations to the boys who earned this well-deserved tournament championship.  It is a great start to what we all hope is a very fun and exciting season!

The 2018-19 Novice A Waxers are: #7 Andrew, #8 Michael, #9 Matthew, #11 Julian, #16 Ivan, #18 Fraser, #26 Peter, #31 Braydon, #34 Lorenzo, #65 Alex, #70 Stephen, #71 Lucas, #77 Trevor, #86 Jack, #87 Carter, #91 Dylan and #99 Ronnie.
