Bantam AE Dragons win International Silver Stick in Pelham
Submitted By Jeremy Rintjema on Thursday, January 12, 2017
The Dorchester Dragons brought home another Silver Stick banner to hang in the Flight Exec Centre after winning the 2017 International Silver Stick tournament this past weekend.  The Dragons won their Bantam AE division with a 3-0 victory over Mitchell in the finals on Sunday.

It was a great experience for the Bantam AE team to participate in the opening ceremonies to trade pins with teams from Canada and the US, and to have a chance to play against some American teams.  The Indiana and California families spoke of needing to travel for over an hour to reach the next nearest arenas in their areas, much different from our hockey experience here in Ontario.  The International Silver Stick organizers spoke to the team after the championship game about the history of Silver Stick and the spirit of sportsmanship and competition in the long running event.

Congratulations to Dorchester Bantam AE in continuing the winning ways of the Dragons!
