Owen Tippett Minor Star Of The Week – Aug 5-7 / 07


Our latest “Minor Star of The week” comes from tonights Ontario Lacrosse Provincial Tyke “A” Championship game. I was able to witness almost the entire game, which was played between Peterborough and Halton Hills. A hard fought battle, their second time on this day, Peterborough pulled out the win 6-5 on a goal with 1:24 left in the 3rd period.

Owen Tippett is described as a “very talented smart player” by opposing coaches, and “an athlete” and a “real unselfish team player” by his own lacrosse Coach Doug Ogilvie. Doug mentioned to me that Owen, who plays very high level hockey (a year higher than his age), almost did not play lacrosse this summer. When he found out that he had been given the lacrosse team, Doug called Owen’s parents and asked if they would reconsider him playing. It was that call and a little message that got Owen out to play.

Doug mentioned to me (as well as Owen’s father back prior to this season) that he had had a dream about Owen scoring the winning goal in Overtime at this years Provincials. While this did not happen today, he did score the winning goal in Overtime at this years Zone Championship Final against Whitby, a previously undefeated team.


Today, Owen also scored twice in the 6-5 win and he and all of his team mates certainly stepped up when it really counted over the past three days, winning six games and losing only two in a very tough Tyke “A” division.

Congratulations to Owen, Doug, and the entire Peterborough Tyke “A” players and staff, on a great ending to their 2007 lacrosse season.
