With the Christmas season approaching the MD7 White team wanted to lend a helping hand to a less fortunate family in their community.  The team heard about a seven year old boy living apart from his terminally ill Mom and immediately the team knew they had to assist in every way possible to brighten this family's Christmas.

In order to raise money to buy Christmas gifts, the boys joined forces with Boston Pizza and worked as Celebrity Servers throughout the evening of December 3rd.  Friends, families and neighbours came out to support the boys in their quest as the young men got to work delivering food and drinks, clearing tables and selling raffle tickets while also asking guests to submit their receipt into a box at the end of their meal.  The boys explained they were raising money for a family in need and BP would give them a percentage of the total amount of all receipts submitted.  Although the boys were exhausted at the end of the night, they all had an amazing time working together towards a common goal.  Their hard work far exceeded anyone's expectations earning over $700.00 from raffle ticket sales and BP contributions.  Because of the success, the team was able to touch the lives of a few families in their community rather than just one.

These boys are a true example of what the Christmas spirit is all about and are proof that you are never too young to make a difference in someone's life.

Congratulations Toros, your success far exceeds what you do on the ice.

The MD7 White boys were pumped and ready to hit the ice yesterday to play the Kingston Canadians, but what they didn't know was that Kingston wasn't their only opponent - The Hockey Gods were also in the house yesterday and were definitely not on Clarington's side.  Whether you call it luck, fate or a fluke the way the puck bounces impacts the outcome of a game and yesterday the puck seemed to bounce the wrong way for Clarington every time (The Hockey Gods.)  But this didn't deter our boys - they have too much character and determination to let a little bad luck stand in their way.  They stuck to their game, worked hard and eventually came out on top with a score of 5-1.  The boys played as a team, made some beautiful passes and played a strong defensive game.  Goals were scored by N. Fata (2), L. Lawson, M. LittleJohn and B. Besco.  Goal tending was solid by C. Medwid. 
The issue with every sport is that you can do everything right and sometimes things just don't go your way.  The way a puck hits a goal post can either result in a goal or in a near miss, or the way the puck hits your stick can either settle on the tape or can bounce over your stick onto the tape of an opposing player.  Things like this are sometimes out of a player's control and left up to luck, fate or the intervention of the Hockey Gods.  Yesterday was a good example of this but was also an example of how hard work, persistence and willpower can beat any opponent and any kind of luck.  So congratulations boys and NICE TRY HOCKEY GODS - don't let the door hit you on the way out!

It's not very often that both the home team and visiting team wear red pants, red helmets and a Toro on their jersey, but such was the case this evening.  Tonight was the much anticipated meeting of the MD7 teams - a game that friends, neighbours and schoolmates became opponents.  It was a game that the boys had been talking about and preparing for since the schedule was released.  
The MD7 White boys hit the ice to a crowd of their fans outfitted in grey sweatshirts, horns and noise makers.  As the puck dropped , it was obvious that this could be either team's game. Both teams had their chances to bury the puck but exceptional defence and goal tending by both teams kept the score at 1-1 by the end of the first.  The teams showed grit and determination and had their fans on the edge of their seats for 40 long minutes.  The scored remained tied at the end of the second but our boys prevailed in the third and clinched the win over their home town rivals with a score of 4-2.  Goals were scored by B. Besco (2), M. LittleJohn and K. Milne-Ross.  Congratulations to both Toros teams on a game well played.  Whether you were cheering tonight for the team wearing white jerseys or blue jerseys, we are all part of the same Toros community and all Toros bleed red, white and blue!

The Peterborough Petes were in town this past Sunday and our MD7 White boys were pumped and ready for the challenge.  After Friday's win against Ajax, the boys had Saturday to rest up and enjoy a day off away from the rink. The rest proved to be beneficial as the boys hit the ice ready to play.  The score was 1-0 for Clarington after the first period but the offence was just getting started.  B. Besco lit it up with with a total of 4 goals and M. LittleJohn added to the score by popping in 2 goals of his own.  The boys continued to shut Peterborough down as the defence stood strong and added a bit of impressive offence of their own.  J. Mroz celebrated after he scored his first goal of the regular season after slipping one past a very talented Peterborough goalie.  R. Grenke was steady for 3 straight periods allowing only 1 goal against. Our boys' hard work and efforts in practice are unquestionably paying off in games which is not only evident on the score board but also in their positional play.  Continue to work hard boys as no goal was ever met without a little sweat!!

Tonight was one of those games that you won't soon forget.  Whether it was the bright pink tape and laces or playing under the "Friday Night Lights", there was something a little different about tonight's game.   Perhaps it was the incredible goal tending or the solid defence or maybe even the sheer grit exemplified by some players, whatever the case, tonight's game had it all.  The boys knew they needed to work hard and play as a team if they were going to be successful and they did just that.  Yes, there were moments of chaos and confusion but that only added to the excitement and drama.  Tonight we applauded some beautiful passes, outstanding defence, unbelievable goals and heart stopping saves.  It was a game full of emotion, grit and heart and there's no where else I'd rather be on a Friday night then watching our boys play a good ole game of hockey.  Congratulations Toros, you make us proud!!
