Lucknow Tourney and year in review.....
Submitted By Gary Ballagh on Sunday, March 16, 2014
The boys were up before breakfast and on the ice in Lucknow at 8 am Sunday Mar 9. We played Seaforth who were a very strong team.


There was lots of action up and down the ice, but the seemed to come our way faster than we could go their way. We lost 3-2 for game one. Some of us made church to try to improve our chances against the hometown team, but they must of had more that went to church as they were closer and we turned in a second loss and were now officially retired for the season.

As I think back to the first of the year it is amazing how this team has come along. Under the coaching of Doug Ireland, Glen Hays and Lorne Alexander, they formed and molded these young players into something....a team.
The skills they picked up and put in place were very good. A great stepping stone to developing a skill set for next year.
The party after the tournament left a few people very tired at work the next day.....no names shall be mentioned....BUT I thought Lorne summed it up well when he said in his best scottish accent......" If you have this much fun when you lose, what is it like when you win???"
Thanks for the season coaches, parents and kids. It has been fun. Regards, Gary
