The 2013 season was supposed to bring change for the Beaches, and did it ever. May 13th Home Opener was a testimate to how much has changed  over the off-season. Ted Reeve Arena is now truely the Beach House with banners and signs and colours that will make every visiting team know who’s barn it is! The team also went through some significant changes. A much younger, faster and skilled team was featured on Monday night when they faced off against the always dangerous Six Nations Arrows. Of course, captain Jordan Robertson led the way with 4 goals and 1 assist on route to being named the second star of the game. But it was the supporting cast of young players that were brought in this season that kept the game close. After the first period, the Beaches led the Arrows 5-4. Tanner Thomson and Derek Downs both scored their first career goals for the Beach as well as former Newmarket Jr. B star Chad Levick picking up his first two points of the season assisting on the Robertson and Downs goals. The second period was all Six Nations as the Beaches were out scored 4-0 in the frame and trailed 8-5 into the second intermission. However the Beach Boys woke up in the third period and went toe-to-toe with the Arrows. Downs scored his second goal of the night, as well as Robertson’s hat-trick and fourth goal, and Fournier, Hulbert and Davidson all tallied as the team pushed Six Nations right until the end. 14-11 was the final score in favour of Six Nations, but everyone in the building was able to see the vast improvments made over the past year. The team will take on the Kitchener-Waterloo Braves on May 24th on Beaches Minor Night where the Beaches Jr. A will be honouring the future Beaches Jr. A stars.
