Lo­cal hockey player fin­ishes ‘Dream’ sea­son

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

It was a Dream sea­son for the Ban­tam A Rapi­des de Sher­brooke girls hockey team and lo­cal girl Hannah Veilleux was a part of that team. Coached by Do­minic Ouel­lette, the Rapi­des won 21 games, lost 2 and tied 1 of their 24 regular sea­son games. They par­tic­i­pated in three tour­na­ments that were held in Drum­mondville, Laval and Sher­brooke, com­ing home with Cham­pion ban­ners in all three oc­ca­sions. This be­ing an in­ter-re­gional league, the play­offs were held in La­chine where the team was de­feated in the semi­fi­nals. But to be able to go to the Pro­vin­cial Dodge Cup,

they had to win the re­gion­als which was achieved in Sher­brooke. The provin­cials were held in Ri­mouski from April 9th to the 12th and the girls were guar­an­teed three games. They lost one and won two and were able to push on to the semi­fi­nals which they won 4-0. In the fi­nals they faced Three Rivers and, in a nail-bit­ing game, they con­quered with a score of 2-0. It was truly a dream sea­son for th­ese girls. The first seven years of Hannah’s hockey was played through the Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey pro­gram. This is also her sec­ond time play­ing at the Dodge Cup. Last year she played for the Pee­wee AA Har­fangs

de Sher­brooke who also brought home the cham­pion ban­ner. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Hannah and all the girls on the Ban­tam A team!!!
