On November 19 2017 the Blackburn Stingers Midget A team were crowned Champions of the West Nipissing Fall Classic Tournament. The Stingers dominated their division in the round robin outscoring their opponents 16-1. The team was in a battle in the semifinals pulling out a last minute 3-2 win over KL Gold. With the Team Captain unable to play in the finals, everyone stepped up to defeat the East Nipissing Vipers 3-0. The most impressive part of this team was the discipline they displayed playing in a very physical tournament . This was a complete team effort from start to finish, playing a relentless style that wore down and frustrated every opponent they faced. Every player was dedicated to an all-around team game which made it very difficult for the coaching staff to single out one MVP.
