WOODSTOCK, Ont. - The 2018 ALLIANCE Hockey Pro Hockey Life Midget AAA All-Star Weekend was hosted December 1-2, 2018 in Woodstock, ON. Forty of the top AAA players from each of the Bantam, Minor Midget and Midget divisions took to the ice to showcase their talents in a one-game showdown.
The Bantam Game featured end-to-end action and the game concluded as a 6-6 tie advancing the game into overtime. Following a quick, 3-on-3 5 minute OT period, the game was still tied forcing a shootout. Team White West eventually capitalized in the shootout and went on to win the game over Team Navy East.
The Minor Midget game was a true nail-biter and it also took overtime for Team Navy to eventually defeat Team White.
With just under 2 minutes remaining in the extra period, Team Navy was awarded a penalty shot. London's Brett Harrison capitalized on the opportunity and ended the contest leading Team Navy to capture the title of 2018 Minor Midget AAA All-Star Champions!
The Midget game was not only exciting but fast-paced. Team Navy came out on top with a score of 5-3 over Team White, including an empty-net goal.
