congrates to Mitch and the Brantford Eagles, coached by former Pittsburg Penguins Captain Mike Bullard, who beat the Stratford Cullitons for the Ontario Junior B Mid-Western Conference Championship (The Cherrey Cup). Brantford now face the London Nationals and St. Catharines Falcons in a round robin tournament for the Provincial Championship (Sutherland Cup). For our forum members here, our friend Tommy Goudge (aka Tommy Salami) is the arena announcer for the London Nats.
Brantford had some excellent over agers they received from OHL teams-Trent Hawke played previously for the Barrie Colts, Mike Appio played for Owen Sound Attack, and Goalie Bryce O'Hagan came from the Peterborough Petes.
Schedule is just being formatted (St. Catharines is affected by the OHL playoffs) so check the Brantford Expositor website or www.twitter/expbsmiley.com
for tournament dates.
Mitch is small at 5'5" but I noticed in four games I attended that Bullard would send him out to take crucial faceoffs (and he usually won)
