The 2005 Spartans beat the Edgey Islanders 5-1 in an exciting final of the Mainland Tournament Major Novice “A” division. The Spartans overcame an earlier round-robin defeat to the Islanders and came to play with added determination for the final. The game was closer than the final score suggests and offered a high drama and excitement.
While it was truly a complete team effort, goaltender Aiden Thomas was awarded game MVP on the basis of strong overall play and a key breakaway save when the score was 3-1 and the Islanders were gaining momentum. It was a memorable debut for the 2005 Spartans who are in their first year of competition.
