Tri Pen Ice claim in­au­gu­ral cham­pi­onship

The Compass - - SPORTS -

Tri Pen Ice Fe­male Ban­tams came away from the first At­lantic Ban­tam Fe­male In­vi­ta­tional Tour­na­ment in Prince Ed­ward Is­land over the week­end of March 26-28 with the cham­pi­onship tro­phy.

Tri Pen rep­re­sented Hockey New­found­land and Labrador at the tour­ney.

The team, which has play­ers from ar­eas be­tween Whit­bourne and Clarenville, had three wins and one tie in the round robin. The team tied Bed­ford Blues 2-2 and de­feated West­ern Wind 4-1, Colch­ester Cy­clones 4-1 and the Powel Red Devils 7-1.

Tri Pen de­feated HNS Bed­ford Blues 6-4 in the cham­pi­onship game to claim the prize.

This is the first tour­na­ment for this age group in fe­male hockey. It is hoped this can be de­vel­oped into a rec­og­nized At­lantic Cham­pi­onship sim­i­lar to the one cur­rently held for Midget Fe­male.
