Bor­der Pee Wee B team earns Cham­pi­ons ti­tle

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Maryse Roy Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion Stanstead

From the mo­ment the puck was dropped to the fi­nal buzzer, lo­cal Bor­der Pee Wee B team played like the cham­pi­ons they would be crowned as Sun­day af­ter­noon in the fi­nals when they won over the lo­cal Coat­i­cook team 4-1.

Go­ing in this tour­na­ment as the “un­der­dogs”, they rose to the chal­lenge. With lots of hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion, they fi­nally skated off the rink as the 2016 Cham­pi­ons.

Win­ning the first two games gave them a spot in the semi­fi­nals Sun­day morn­ing. Again, they played an awe­some game. The team then en­joyed a nice meal to­gether be­fore the big face­off in the af­ter­noon. Th­ese kids truly de­serve the Cham­pi­ons ti­tle. It was a dif­fi­cult be­gin­ning of sea­son, but the dero­ga­tion down to the “B” divi­sion made a huge dif­fer­ence for the team, as they are now com­pet­ing at the level they be­long in. The team is do­ing great, and kids have a smile on their face and en­joy their sea­son. Af­ter all, that’s what it’s all about! The play­ers are now ready to de­fend their ti­tle in the next tour­na­ment in East An­gus this Fe­bru­ary.

Great job, team!
