The Onaping Falls Peewee Huskies enjoyed a very successful trip to Ottawa last weekend, sweeping their way to a title at the Cumberland Dukes House League Showdown.

The boys were one of 16 teams taking part in the tournament in the nation's capital, and won six straight games en route to a gold medal.

The Huskies opened the tournament against the Nobleking Knights on Friday, earning a convincing 5-1 win. On Saturday the Huskies opened their day with a 2-0 win over Lakeshore, before knocking off the host Cumberland Dukes by a score of 6-1 to close out the round robin with a 3-0 record.

Quarterfinals kicked off early Sunday morning, with the Huskies facing off with the Nobleking Knights for a second time. The Huskies cruised once again, beating the Knights by the same 5-1 score as they had in round robin play.

The Onaping boys faced a stiff test in the semi-final, taking on the Gatineau Titans. The Huskies pulled through with a 3-2 win over Gatineau, earning themselves a place in the finals against the Barrie Blue Devils.

While the Huskies had scored goals in bunches throughout the tournament, it was a solid defensive game that would earn them the gold medal, as they downed the Blue Devils 2-1.
