The 21st Under-18 All-Star Festival fuelled by Gatorade wrapped up on Saturday, January 28 as the ‘AA’ All-Stars went head-to-head.  

In an exciting, buzzer-beating finish, Team Blue came away with the 3-2 win. 

Aiden Pitblado (Leaside Flames) captured the Gatorade Performer of the Game for Team Blue with a two-goal performance. 

On Team Red, Eric Del Fatti (Vaughan Rangers) was named the Gatorade Performer of the Game. 

To open the game’s scoring, Pitblado put Team Blue up 1-0 in the first period. 

In the middle frame, both teams traded goals as Pitblado added his second of the game and Gabriel Campoli (Vaughan Rangers) responded for Team Red.  

As the third period began with a 2-1 lead for Team Blue, the contest featured back and forth action from both sides.
