The Tyke White Hornets had their first win of the season today against the Campbellford Colts! This historic rivalry was on the line when the two teams faced off on Sunday morning at 11:00 am!
The Hornets came out strong early in the game! Just 25 seconds into the first period Ashlynn Crowley scored the teams first goal. The all girl connection of Giorgia Snetsinger and Arianna Johnson picked up assists on the goal.
The Colts came back shooting hard, but the Tyke White STAR Goaltender Lucas Pickard kept the Hornets in the lead for two periods! Lucas was assisted by the extremly strong play of the teams two defensive lines. The Blonde Bombshell defense pair, Giorgia Snetsinger and Gracyn Sedgwick and the Tough Guys defense pair of Aiden Sherry and Donald Higgins outskated the Colts strong power forwards!
The Colts came back to tie up the game early in the third period when a lucky bounce in front of the net got by the Hornets stong net minder. But the speedy Hornets responded with a goal. Sam Hackett scored the game winner to put the Hornets back in the lead! Helping out on this goal were Defenceman Bryer Carter and fast forward Mason Rutherford!
Many of the Hornets players are in their first or second year of playing, but the entire team is impressing the scouts around the league!! Aiden Sherry was named HORNETS PLAYER OF THE GAME and the entire team celebrated their first win of the year with slushies(Thanks to Mom Snetsinger!)!

The Pee Wee Rep Hornets were the first of many Norwood Teams to start their playoff series this year. The Pee Wee team is matched up against the strong team from Tweed for the first round. Unfortunately Tweed has won in the two regular season meetings this year, so the Hornets are expecting a tough first round.
In the team's first game on Friday January 8th, the Hornets were in Tweed for Game 1 and the Hornets were ready to play.
The Pee Wee A's tied Tweed 4 to 4 after regulation time and went into a 10 minute sudden victory overtime period. The Hornets had a few strong chances, but the Tweed Goalie kept the puck out of the net. The score remained tied at the end of the game, and both teams move on to Game 2 on Sunday January 10th at 4:30 pm in Norwood.
Hornets Goalie Devon Creasy was named the Hornets Player of the Game for Game 1 after an outstanding performance in net!
Come and Cheer on your Pee Wee Hornetsin Game 2!

Quarter Final Sweep for the Atom A Hornets
Feb 17, 2015, 7:15 am
The Atom A Hornets played game three of the OMHA Quarter Finals last night in Cannington against the fiery Brock Wild team. The Hornets were already up two games in this best 3 out of 5 contest. The Hornets easily won the first match, but the Wild game back strong in game two to make it a very close competition. The Hornets were expecting a big game from the Wild in Game three.
The first period was a nail bitter for both teams, there were a number of opportunities at both ends of the rink, but both the Hornets Goalie Devon Creasy and the Wild Goalie Jack Gratrix had a strong first period and held the score at 0 – 0. You could feel the intensity in the rink growing as both teams were feeling desperate for a goal at the start of the second. The Hornets capitalized first with a short handed goal scored by Tommy Pollock with an assist from Marshall Flynn. The Wild team responded two minutes later with their first goal of the game. The Hornets call up Evan Smockum scored his first of the play offs with 6 minutes left in the second period. Assisting Evan on this goal were Centreman Jacob Shepstone and Winger Colby Hanbidge. But this lead didn’t last long as the Brock Wild answered back with two goals near the end of the second period putting them ahead 3-2. The Hornets went into the flood break down by one goal and feeling the pressure in the dressing room. Coach McMillan reminded the team of what got them to this point in the play downs and encouraged the Hornets to go back out on the ice in the third period ready to play the way they know how. This advice seemed to work as the Hornets came back to the ice looking ready for the third.
8 minutes went by in the third period, and the Brock Wild remained ahead by one goal. The Hornets had two goals called back by the referees and the Hornets were starting to feel frustrated, but with just seven minutes remaining in the game, Tommy Pollock scored his second of the game as he went “top shelf” on the Wild goalie. This goal to tie up the game at 3 – 3 was assisted by line mates Shane Archer and Marshall Flynn. With the score tied up, the Hornets seemed to get a renewed sense of energy and were winning all the puck the battles to keep the Wild out of the Hornets end. Hardworking Left Winger Colby Hanbidge had been kept off the score board up until the last 3 minutes when he caught the Wild Defense off guard and got a few steps ahead of them to score a breakaway goal with just three minutes left in the game. With the Wild trying to fend off elimination, and the Hornets looking to move on the last 3 minutes in the game seemed to last an eternity. The Hornets played with the most intensity seen all game to keep the puck in the offensive end for much of the remaining 3 minutes and the Wild just couldn’t get a chance to get close to the Norwood goal. Even with an empty net and the extra attacker for the Wild, the Hornets dominated the play to win this close game with a score of 4 – 3.
Coach McMillan praised the solid performance by the Hornets big and strong defensemen Daniel Begg, Mitchell Crowley, Sam Rogers and Henry Walsh for keeping the Wild away from the Hornets net. He also couldn’t say enough about the hard work and amazing back checking of the two forward lines of Tommy Pollock, Marshall Flynn, Shane Archer, Jacob Shepstone, Nathan Honey, Colby Hanbidge and Evan Smockum. And the Hornets goalie Devon Creasy really kept the Hornets in each game in this round of the OMHA Quarter Finals.
The Atom A Hornets now move on to the Semi Finals and will meet up a team from Shallow Lake (Owen Sound area). Dates and times to be confirmed. Keep on cheering for your Archer Bulk Carriers Atom A Hornets!
