Tri Pen Ice claim inaugural championship
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.
