U16 Hurricanes Do Well in Marlies Holiday Classic
Over the Christmas break, the highly ranked Halton Hurricanes U16 team traveled to Toronto for the Marlies Holiday Classic. The Hurricanes were outstanding and went undefeated in the round robin.
The U16 team advanced to the quarter-finals defeating a top 5 team in the USA, Bishop Kearney 5-1.

The Canes then beat the Mississauga Rebels in the semis 8-2 to advance to the finals against the tourney hosting Toronto Marlies. In the finals, the U16 Canes looked great in this epic battle, but came up short against the number 1 ranked Marlies, losing 4-1.

The tourney outcome and the current first place ranking in the SCTA will likely put the U16 Hurricanes team in a great position as the team heads into the final stretch of their season towards an OHL Cup.
