Hockey tour­na­ment cov­er­age

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Some great hockey was played in the Pat Burns Arena, over the week­end, in front of not only full stands of spec­ta­tors but also in front of NHL scouts, Que­bec Ma­jor Ju­nior League scouts and scouts from the NCAA (U.S. col- leges). “The run­ning of the tour­na­ment was first­class and it was the strong­est com­pe­ti­tion we’ve ever seen. The cal­i­bre of play was out­stand­ing and it ran very smoothly; the tour­na­ment was well-re­ceived by all of the teams,” com­mented the Stanstead Col­lege Spar­tans head coach, James Rioux.

“The team played great in the tour­na­ment,” said Mr. Rioux. The Spar­tans were 2 and 1 in the ‘round robin’ and won the sec­ond semi-fi­nal against Hill Academy, from Toronto, with a score of 4 to 3. The first semi-fi­nal saw Col­lege Ste-Foy beat Ap­pleby Col­lege with the score of 4 to 2.
