Midgets Fare Well in SilverStick ** UPDATE **
Submitted By Dave Tiffin on Fri 11 30, 12
The Wingham Midgets will be in the International SilverStick tournament in January.  One of the American teams that was to attend is unable to do so.  Wingham, as finalists in the recent Regional tournament, will be taking their place. The Wingham Midget team came within a goal of winning the Regional SilverStick last weekend.  After going 2-1 in round play, Wingham played Seaforth and Minto in Sunday's playdowns.

Wingham defeated Elma-Logan 12-0 in their first game.  Although one-sided, Wingham would need those goals later in the tournament.  They then beat Teeswater 7-4 on Nov. 23 before falling 3-2 to Seaforth on Saturday.  The high goal totals in games 1 and 2 allowed Wingham to finish first in their grouping, pitting them against Seaforth again, in Sunday's semi-final.  The team played very well, coming away with a 6-0 victory and placing them against Minto in the "C" finals.
Minto, last year's "C" winners, hadn't had a goal scored against them in the round robin or semi-final games.  After a scoreless first, Minto went up by 1 in the second and added another in the third.  But with under 2 minutes left in the game, Ryan Stulp was able to score twice to tie the game at 2.  In the overtime, Wingham had control of the play for much of the time, but Minto was able to keep a breakout from Wingham's end contained and scored the winner with just over 2 minutes left in OT.
Minto will now travel to the International SilverStick tournament in January.  Congratulations to both teams on a great tournament.
