Two Zone 6 teams squared off tonight for the 'A' Championship with the Whitby Warriors winning 9-5 over the Peterborough Lakers. This is the third straight year Whitby has captured the Tyke 'A' Title-and it is the fourth straight year Peterborough has made it to the final

boro is about a 45 minute drive from whitby. Im sure most if not all of the boro parents chose to sleep at home. So really they had the longest drive of any team everyday.

Lots of players from Barrie, Innisfil, Caledon, Newmarket, etc. don't stay over and have longer daily drives.

Whitby gets home floor advantage. Whitby gets the byes. Heck, sometimes Whitby is even lucky enough to have you refereeing...lol.

She:kon!

With home floor advantage, byes and hometown referees one would think that Whitby would be cleaning up right?  So lets take a look at the results so far, keeping in mind that the Peewee, Bantam and Midget A finals are not in Whitby this year:

<strong>Tyke boys</strong>

A - Whitby I, champs
B - Whitby II, QF loss (CW champs)
C - Whitby III, QF loss (Shelburne champs)

<strong>Peewee boys:</strong>


B - Whitby II, QF loss (Missy champs)
D - Whitby III, QF loss (Mimico II champs)


<strong>Bantam boys</strong>

B - Whitby II, DNQ (London champs)
D - Whitby III, QF loss (Innisfil champs)


<strong>Bantam Girls</strong>

Whitby Champs

So of the 8 teams entered in the competitions that have been decided thus far, only 2 have won anything which is a whopping 25% success rate.  For most Whitby teams, the advantages you mentioned don't appear to be that significant at all, especially for the non-A teams.  Still have some Girls finals, the Novices and Intermediates of course, but the results are pretty plain so far.  Also, the advantages that apply for Whitby would be the same for Clarington and they haven't won anything yet as I can see (but with less teams entered).

Whitby was placed in a group with the #6,#7 and #12 teams. Guaranteed 3-0 record. They had to play #5 Barrie in the QF (Barrie is a strong team) Then they get a bye to the final against a Laker team that had a tough game against a tough team (#3 Oakville) earlier that afternoon. That is a very easy road to the gold.

Sure you tell the kids that its all about the fun, the experience, the friendships. And that is true.  For them.  But when 'home floor' advantage is raised, or the advantaged of sleeping at home, there is more to it than just fun, experience and friendships isn't there?  And the result so far - other than Tyke A and Bantam Girls (which Whitby owns anyway in any place) there simply doesn't appear to be any advantage whatsoever when it comes to anything "more." 

Going 3-0 and then losing in the QF is hardly worthy of any "advantage."  What about the out-of-town teams that went 5-0, 4-1, etc.  What were their "advantages?"  What about Clarington?  I noticed you neatly avoided discussing their "advantages."  Come on now.

I'll tell you what you do when you whine about supposed advantages Whitby and Clarington teams have because of the location of the Festival.  You take away from the awesome efforts of ALL the teams that gave it their all, played hard and had fun, a great experience and made many last friendships.
