Dundas Nine-O Tyke Blues opened their Tri-County playoff season with two wins. On Saturday, the Blues secured a 6-1 victory over Caledon. The Blues dominated from the drop of the puck, with Kael Andrew scoring early.
Although the Hawks snuck one past Adam Edwards, he shut down his opponents or the rest of the game. In the second period the Blues peppered the net with goals by Andrew, Kai Sulentic and Declan Forth. In the third, Andrew secured his hat trick and Martin VandenHeuvel wrapped up the scoring. Assists went to Sulentic, Logan VandenHeuvel, Sean Tutt, Zachary Klapman, Kyle Wheaton, Jason MacNeil, and Matthew Taylor.
On Sunday, the Blues momentum continued with a 4-2 victory over Guelph. Again, the Blues burst out in the opening faceoff, with a goal by VandenHeuvel, who added three more goals later in the game. Outstanding goaltending efforts by Edwards and Alex Gazzola were crucial in the win. The back-checking efforts of VandenHeuvel, Christopher Cheeseman and Tutt were critical in keeping the Gryphon scoring efforts at bay. Helpers on Sunday went to Megan Kosempel, Sulentic and Coy Gordon.
