Mark down Saturday May 5th as the first time that two UTM affiates crossed paths and played each other at a tournament... In Princeton, ON this past Saturday as part of the Mohawk Tournament, UTM East took on UTM Brantford in the round-robin portion of the tournament. At the time the game was played East was 1-1-0 and Brantford 0-2-0... the game was a tight affair with runs at a premium early on. The Eastern team coached by Dan Crosby, took the lead mid-way through the game, and held on for a 5-2 victory. The win springboarded the club to a win the next morning as well, which secured Eastern Ontario of a medal game on Sunday afternoon.
It was definitely a proud moment for those involved with the program since day 1. In just two short years, one UTM team has now grown to four. There has already been interest from some coaches at other age groups about possibly leading an affiliate program in 2018/2019.
