Submitted By Kyle Bross on Monday, February 24, 2014
The South Bruce Bantam AE team has moved onto face the Ilderton Jets in the OMHA Semi-Finals.  They accomplished this after coming out first in a round robin with Mitchell and Goderich.  The winner of this best of five Semi-Finals will face either Lakefield or Goderich.  Since there was three teams in WOAA for Bantam AE Groups 4 & 5 this year, South Bruce played a home and home round robin with Mitchell and Goderich.  The top seed went onto play Ilderton whereas the second place team went to the East to face Lakefield.  South Bruce prevailed going 4-0 after these round robin games.

4-1 Win in Goderich

On Saturday, Feb. 1st, South Bruce made the trek up to Goderich despite road conditions being less than ideal.  This game was a lot closer than the score would indicate, but a late charge by South Bruce as well as an empty netter saw the final be a 4-1 score.  Spencer Reinhardt played solid in net for South Bruce in this contest.  Goals came from Rhys Martin with 2, Kalen Cassidy and Curtis Ruetz.  Assists were awarded to Garret Kreager, Clayton Dietz and Jordan Ernewein.  

5-4 Overtime Win vs. Mitchell

On Saturday, Feb. 8th, Mitchell travelled to Teeswater to play the second part of the home and home series with the South Bruce Bantam AE’s.  South Bruce jumped out to an early lead 3-1 but this lead was short lived as Mitchell made it 4-3.  South Bruce scored with under 5 minutes to go to force OT.  South Bruce capitalized early in OT on a power play goal by Caleb Hawkins to give South Bruce the win.  Curtis Ruetz had a goal and 3 assists, Kalen Cassidy had 2 goals, Jordan Ernewein also scored.  Assists were picked up by Jeremiah Lemay, Kirk Schiestel and Caleb Hawkins had 2 assists to go with his OT winner.
