Petrolia Atom Reps are going to North American Silver Championships in Forest.
The team clinched the berth into the championship after beating the Ingersoll Express 4-2 at the Alvinston Regional Silver Stick in the ‘B’ division championship game.
The Oiler scored first in the second period, but Ingersoll scored just a minute after that goal. The game was tied going into the third, when Petrolia scored two. Ingersoll added a marker and then, in the dying minutes, the Oilers were called for a tripping penalty. The Express took advantage of the opportunity, pulling their goalie to go six on four to try to tie the game. But the Oilers pounced on a loose puck and scored an empty netter to secure the win.
The Oilers will be competing in Forest Jan. 24 – 26.
