Chapman's Ice Cream Major Atoms Extend Unbeaten Streak To 5
Submitted By David Black on Tuesday, November 27, 2012
On Saturday, the Major Atoms travelled to Burlington to take on the Eagles. This Atom team stacks up very well with Burlington. In two previous meetings, both games ended in a tie.

This game was shaping up to be much the same until LeBlanc (Mt. Forest) gathered up the puck and went on a great solo rush.  He managed to circle the net and with lightning speed was able to tuck it in on the wrap around late in the first period.  Then, late in the second, Black (Flesherton) stepped around two Eagles before sending a pass to Rahn (Durham).  Rahn proceeded to deke out two more Eagles and then sent a beautiful pass to Goldie (Owen Sound).  Goldie, not to be outdone by the previous deking of Black and Rahn put a beautiful deke on the Eagle net-minder for an important insurance goal.  Burlington carried the play to the Highlanders only to be stoned time and again by Kinch (Bruce Penninsula).  This game would finish 2-0 Highlanders with Kinch getting the well deserved shutout.  The hardest part of this game was having to see Naves (Bruce Penninsula) watch the game from the sidelines due to injury.  He could see the high this team was on after securing the victory and wanted so much to be out there helping.  Also missing due to illness, was Liam Colhoun (Kincardine).  With the short bench, it was great to see the rest of the team step up.

On Sunday, the Highlanders were back in Markdale to take on the Southern Tier Admirals.  The Admirals are a very strong team who have enjoyed success against some of the top teams in the league.  They had beat the Highlanders 2-1 in their previous encounter.  The Highlanders were still playing with the same short bench as Saturday.  The biggest difference in this game was goaltending.  Prues (Hanover) was not to be outdone by Kinch and was exceptional between the pipes.  Meanwhile, at the other end, the Highlanders were finally getting some bounces and scored a couple goals that I'm sure the Admiral Goalie would like to have back.  As this game progressed, the Admirals continued to press with several goalmouth scrambles around Prues only to be denied.  Then with over 8 minutes left, the Admirals pulled their goalie to the bewilderment of many.  After researching the game results for the Admirals, it was discovered they have never been shut out this year.  This was likely the motivation behind the move.  The Highlanders knew they had all the goals they needed and weren't tempted to take unnecessary chances with the open net.  They kept the Admirals to the outside and played a very smart 8 minutes to maintain the shutout for Prues and secure the 3-0 win.

This is becoming a very entertaining team to watch.  They are now 7-3-2 in their last twelve games and unbeaten in five. Their next home game is this Sunday, Dec. 2nd at 4:30 in Chesley against Brampton.
