It was a big week­end for fe­male hockey in cen­tral New­found­land.

The U15 Fe­male Mega tour­na­ment took place in Gan­der and Glovertown from March 23-26.

The two mi­nor hockey as­so­ci­a­tions hosted 25 teams from across the prov­ince for a to­tal of 68 games.

Deb­bie Bouzanne, co-chair for the event, said or­ga­niz­ing the event is a ma­jor un­der­tak­ing, but it’s well worth it.

“This is the largest turnout the event has seen,” said Bouzanne. “But it was a great week­end, we had a lot of sup­port and vol­un­teers, and some great feed­back say­ing the teams had a lot of fun.”

The tour­na­ment also served as a fundraiser for the Cana­dian Breast Cancer Foun­da­tion, in which the funds are used to sup­port breast cancer research, ed­u­ca­tion, health pro­mo­tion and patient sup­port pro­grams.

The U15 tour­na­ment raised over $6,800 for Pink in the Rink.
