Week 7 Atom Review!
Submitted By Matt Thurlow on Monday, November 25, 2019
   Week 7 was a bit of a speed bump for the Saputo Atom Rep Titans as they went 0-3 in two league games and their opener to the Silver Stick Tournament in Wingham....

   
   Tuesday November 19th saw the Ingersoll Express visit the TDRC and double up the Titans 4-2. The boys played well enough to win but didn't end up with the result they wanted, losing their second straight game.
   Saturday afternoon was a bitter sweet event when they visited the league leading Tillsonburg Tornadoes. First off with the bitter, where the boys got swept up in a Tillsonburg twister like Dorthy and Toto, as the hosts posted 59 shots and outpaced Tavi 13-1. The sweet, being the fact that Tillsonburg has surrendered a mere 6 goals this season, and Tavistock's Jay Alexander is credited with one of those. 
   Sunday morning, the Titans started their 2019 Silver Stick journey, and lets focus on the positives. It was a very nice sunny day to drive to the host community Wingham. 
   The boys look to bounce back from their opening lopsided loss in Silver Stick, to the Walkerton Capitals, when they head back to Wingham and face-off against Hanover Tuesday November 26th. I was able to chat with one of the team leaders, second year forward Jay Alexander, after the game versus Walkerton. We discussed what needed to be done differently going forward in the Silver Stick to provide a more successful result. Jay told me without pause, "our team just needs to pass more and get more shots on net." Wondering just how a leader of this young Titan squad would try and rally the troops, I inquired how Jay would try and spark the team. Jay simply responded in his likable, stoic manner,  "I just try and lead by example." 
 
See you at the rink!
