Easter week hockey tour­na­ments fea­tured plenty of great re­sults for teams rep­re­sent­ing the Trin­i­tyCon­cep­tion-Pla­cen­tia area.

With a pro­vin­cial ban­ner on the line, the Bay Arena Rovers Midget B team gave an all-out ef­fort to win the cham­pi­onship game last Wed­nes­day.

Play­ing on home ice in Bay Roberts, the Rovers de­feated the Chan­nel-Port aux Basques Blaze 3-1 to win the Hockey New­found­land and Labrador Midget H Pro­vin­cial Tour­na­ment.

The home team col­lected four wins and a loss prior to win­ning the cham­pi­onship game. The Rovers opened the tour­na­ment on Mon­day by beat­ing the North­east Ea­gles 8-2, then de­feated Torn­gat Moun­tains 5-3. On Tues­day, the Rovers beat the Blaze 5-2 and fol­lowed that with a con­vinc­ing 7-1 win over Beothic. The team’s lone loss at the three-day event came Wed­nes­day against the Baie Verte Sabres in a tight 4-3 de­ci­sion.
