Lo­cal fe­male teams get first round of Easter tour­na­ment march­ing or­ders

The Compass - - SPORTS - BY NI­CHOLAS MERCER

It is not only mi­nor hockey teams who re­ceived their march­ing or­ders in the first round of grad­ing re­ports.

Fe­male hockey has also re­leased its first grad­ing re­port for the 2015-2016 sea­son and much like the mi­nor di­vi­sions, it has young ath­letes trav­el­ling the province in pur­suit of a cov­eted pro­vin­cial ti­tle.

There is one stark dif­fer­ence be­tween the two grad­ing re- ports. Where mi­nor has a large num­ber of di­vi­sions in vary­ing age groups, the fe­male game di­vides its play­ers into three di­vi­sions (un­der-12, un­der-15 and un­der-20) and has three mega tour­na­ments fea­tur­ing as many as 20 teams in each one.

In the un­der-12 di­vi­sion, teams from the Bay Arena, CeeBees mi­nor and Trin­ity Pla­cen­tia will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the mega tour­ney set for Cor­ner Brook on March 18-20.

That marks the end of a sole Bay Arena en­trant at pro­vin­cial tour­na­ments for the time be­ing. As it stands right now, the only lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tives at the un­der-15 level will be CeeBees and Trin­ity Pla­cen­tia. That tour­na­ment is be­ing held in Gan­der March 18-20.

There is a sole rep­re­sen­ta­tive from this re­gion tak­ing part in the un­der-20 tour­na­ment be­ing held in Kel­li­grews March 11-13. Amongst the 19 teams cur­rently reg­is­tered to com­pete, Trin­ity Pla­cen­tia is the only lo­cal team tak­ing part.
