CeeBees alum­nus says no other way to look at Herder re­sult

Com­ment from ar­ti­cle on April 3

The Compass - - News - Dou­glas Moores, a mem­ber of the 1967 CeeBees team that claimed a Herder ti­tle, writes from Har­bour Grace

I wish to com­ment on your ar­ti­cle of April 3 on the win by the CeeBees of the Herder (see Page B1).

The ar­ti­cle was quite pos­i­tive and showed the depth and char­ac­ter of this team which faced such re­mark­able ob­sta­cles just over 3 years ago- hav­ing no where to play- to rise to the top of Se­nior Hockey in the Province.

The team had a plan, which they ex­e­cuted in ex­quis­ite form.

The play­ers re­sponded well and were able to out play and de­feat a for­mi­da­ble op­po­nent.

There will be some naysay­ers how­ever the game was de­cided by the of­fi­cials on the ice.

Post-game, the Cari­bous were true sports­men and lined up to con­grat­u­late the CeeBees. Only when a video ap­peared which ap­peared to be­lie the of­fi­cial on ice the Cari­bous have.

That is un­for­tu­nate. How­ever, both teams know that in ev­ery game there are de­ci­sions they do not agree with.

With­out goal judges and real time video re­play in this game, once the four of­fi­cials con­firmed the de­ci­sion, that’s it. There was noth­ing fur­ther to dis­cuss.

The game went on as it had to. That’s where this mat­ter should end.

The CeeBees fans are loyal and ded­i­cated. The vol­un­teers with the team are de­ci­sion did re­act as they ex­em­plary.

The team has the sup­port of good spon­sors. The towns in the area are sup­port­ive. The ex­ec­u­tive and those re­spon­si­ble for the hockey op­er­a­tions work well to­gether.

Fi­nally the play­ers are ded­i­cated and hard work­ing, play­ing for the love of the game and a fine group of young men.

All the ef­forts of those per­sons noted above will not be di­min­ished or di­luted by the cur­rent com­men­tary.

The CeeBees have shown all of us that a good wellex­e­cuted plan has lead to suc­cess.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the CeeBees — Herder Champs of 2017.
