Brebeuf College Bulls Reach Final 4 at OFSAA Hockey

For the first time in the school's history, Brebeuf College's Sr Hockey team represented the TCDAA at the OFSAA Hockey Championships in St Catharines from March 9-12.
 
Seeded last out of 16 teams, expectations were little for this group, as the Brebeuf Bulls had no experience at the OFSAA level. However, Brebeuf quickly proved that they belonged on this stage, by beating #4 seeded Ajax High 4-2 in their first game.
 
After losing a penalty filled game vs St Marcellinus, Mississauga, 3-1, Brebeuf needed to win its final Round Robin game to advance to the Quarter Finals. The Bulls were dominant, beating St Joan of Ark, Barrie, by a score of 4-1, and surprised everyone by getting into OFSAA's elite 8.
 
In the Quarter Final, Brebeuf took on Frontenac Secondary, Kingston; a team that had beaten the eventual OFSAA champions, St Brother Andre, Markham, in round robin play. The Bulls came out on fire, leading 3-1 in the 1st Period. Once again, penalty trouble was an issue and Frontenac came back, tying the game 3-3 going into the 3rd period. After a hard-faught final period, neither team scored and the game went into sudden death overtime. With 2:20 remaining, Brebeuf scored on a rebound and broke the deadlock in dramatic fashion. The team had gone from being an unknown last seed in the tournament to part of the top four high school teams in Ontario.
 
In the Semi-final semis, Brebeuf took on #5 seed Abbey Park, Oakville. In an intense game, both teams were physical and traded goals back and fourth. After being tied 2-2 with 5:00 left in the 3rd period, Abbey Park broke the tie and beat the Bulls by a final score of 4-2.
 
In the Bronze Medal match, Brebeuf challenged #1 seed, St. Peter's, Peterborough, and battled a more talented team, taking the game to a 2-2 tie going into the third period. The offense of St. Peter's ultimately proved too much for the Bulls, as they eventually lost by a score of 5-2.
 

 

The Brebeuf College Bulls finished in 4th place out of 16 of the top teams in Ontario; a feat that was unfathomable at the beginning of the season, yet alone the beginning of the week. Our school is extremely proud of how the boys represented Brebeuf College and the TCDSB on and off of the ice at OFSAA, and we know it was an experience of a lifetime that the boys will never forget.
