Team wins Hockey on the Hill Con­test

Shoreline Beacon - - Sports -

the Ziegler castle lum­ber Saugeen Shores Pee­wee hl girls’ Storm team will play at canada rink 150 on Par­lia­ment hill, rep­re­sent­ing the South­ern on­tario re­gion, af­ter win­ning a hockey on the hill con­test, part of the Bell cap­i­tal cup canada 150 divi­sion.

The Storm - one of 16 Pee­wee boys and 16 house league Pee­wee girls teams - will rep­re­sent South­ern on­tario at this year’s Bell cap­i­tal cup hockey tour­na­ment in a special canada 150 divi­sion.

along with a youtube video show­cas­ing the team, the con­test re­quired an es­say. in­stead of an es­say, Pee­wee Storm coach Bryan ted­ford wrote and sub­mit­ted a poem.

in a nov. 28 tele­phone in­ter­view ted­ford said that the poem may have given the Storm an edge in the con­test.

ted­ford said he was “thrilled” to get the call last week from the tour­na­ment or­ga­niz­ers con­firm­ing their win, and quickly sent an email to all the play­ers.

“We have’t had a team meet­ing yet, but i imag­ine they are as ex­cited as i am,” ted­ford said, ac­knowl­edg­ing the Ziegler castle lum­ber Pee­wee Storm team has “not had a great sea­son with wins and losses, but they are learn­ing.”

The prize pack­age in­cludes round-trip travel to/from ot­tawa; list­ing of each team on the hockey canada ros­ter; trans­porta­tion while in ot­tawa-gatineau; a guar­an­teed a min­i­mum of three tour­na­ment games, with a min­i­mum of one game played on the canada 150 rink on Par­lia­ment hill; and a com­mem­o­ra­tive set of canada 150-oihF Jer­seys.

here is the Storm’s win­ning sub­mis­sion: The Saugeen Shores hockey Poem We are a hockey team from Saugeen Shores, We play Pee­wee house league girls. hockey is the sport we love to play,

When­ever we play hockey it’s a great day. Proud cana­di­ans we very much are, hop­ing to meet cana­dian teams from afar.

Play­ing in the ot­tawa in­ter­na­tional hockey Fes­ti­val we hope to do,

cho­sen to rep­re­sent south­ern on­tario re­gion would be so cool too.

our team from Saugeen Shores is called the Storm,

With lots of prac­tice we will be in good form.

our player of the game wears a bright or­ange vest,

it doesn’t mat­ter if we win hav­ing fun is what’s best.

The sound the skate blades make as we carve the ice,

gives us a thrill each time it sounds so nice.

Passes, wrists shots, slap shots we can do much more,

if the coach would let us we would play un­til our feet were sore.

hockey is the favourite sport in this coun­try we love,

We can’t imag­ine any sport that will ever rise above.

canada is one hun­dred and fifty years old this year,

The coun­try is get­ting bet­ter with age it is clear.

the coun­try and the play­ers are not per­fect it is true,

Work­ing hard to im­prove is what we are striv­ing to do.

Play­ing a hockey game on par­lia­ment hill,

to be hon­est would be an ab­so­lute thrill.
