The Algoma Thunderbirds are making a push
SAULT ST. MARIE,ON– Can one player make a world of a difference in a team oriented sport? Ask Thomas Cory, Head Coach of the Algoma Thunderbirds and he will confirm, after landing star forward DJ Wright, NJCAA ……
“Quote on impact of DJ”
Prior to Wright jumping on his hometown roster, (originally from Sault St. Marie) the Thunderbirds were a mediocre team, striving to get over the hump against the top half of the standings.
In the first half of the season, Algoma took losses to the likes of Humber,(14-1) Sheridan, (11-3)Niagara, (9-5) Mohawk, (9-4) and Fanshawe (9-5) while easily handling their lower tier opponents.
Presently, Thomas Cory has his Thunderbirds rolling with a current five-game winning streak including huge back-back victories over CCAA elite, Humber (NPH #3) and Sheridan.
“Quote on the big win”
Expect this team to continue their dominance to end the regular season, while climbing the OCAA-W standings and potentially earning a spot on the tail-end of the NPH CCAA Rankings.
The team out of “The Soo” may have found the final piece of the puzzle…enough for an OCAA Championship? How about a National championship?
