OMHA Champions!
Submitted By Michelle Brown on Monday, April 1, 2019
They did it!  The Behan Minor Midget AA team are Red Hat wearing, OMHA Champions!

After a very tough and competitive series against the Belle River Canadiens, the group of Grade 10 Nighthawks were crowned the victors in front of a jammed packed arena.

This team has had a successful year from the get go.  Early on, they set their sights on becoming OMHA Champions, and collectively they all jumped on board and worked together to achieve this goal.

Winning a championship of this significance does not come easily.  It is the culmination of many factors, including skill, hardwork, dedication and tremendous effort.

Hockey is a team sport, and championship hockey teams successfully embrace the team work mentality. Everyone brings a different skill and a different attitude, but the one thing that they do have in common is a shared vision.

Under their coaches direction, they bring their part of the puzzle each and every practice and game and put their "team game" together both on and off the ice.

This series between Northumberland and Belle River united not only the Nighthawks, but our community as a whole. Game 4 at the Bowl saw almost 800 fans fill the seats and clap their thunder sticks which were generously provided by National Shunt Services Ltd.  Sundays final game, in a winner take all battle, had everyone "Pack the Jack" in standing room only fashion.  Every seat was filled with fans of all ages, who came to rally behind and help lift the boys to victory.

The Nighthawks controlled a majority of the play in all three periods in what was a very fast paced game. Although the Canadiens were a very worthy, and tough opponent, the Nighthawks were determined to accomplish their teams initial goal that they set, way back at the beginning of the season.  They did not disappoint themselves or their fans and at the end of the game - they were crowned OMHA Champions and presented with the highly sought after red hats.

Congratulations to you all on your outstanding season! On behalf of the NMHA, your families, and our community, we are all very proud of you!!!
