The Trinity-Pla­cen­tia Tee Pees were crowned the 2018 champions at the Atom C provin­cials April 7.

Jen­nifer Reid-Bar­rett’s son Jack­son Bar­rett ac­cepted the hard­ware as the team cap­tain at the Danny Cleary Har­bour Grace Com­mu­nity Cen­tre last Satur­day.

“It was a crazy close game,” Reid-Bar­rett, the team’s man­ager and co-or­di­na­tor, said. “We suf­fered our only loss to the Cari­bous in round robin ac­tion.”

The Tee-Pees bounced back in the cham­pi­onship game, de­feat­ing the Clarenville Cari­bous 6-5. Brody Har­num scored the win­ning goal to lift the Tee Pees to vic­tory.

The Tee Pees’ win-loss record for the tour­na­ment was 5-1. The team net­ted 44 goals in to­tal and al­lowed 31, re­sult­ing in a plus-mi­nus dif­fer­en­tial of 13.

Jack­son Bar­rett had 7 goals through­out the tour­na­ment.

“We worked re­ally hard,” the cap­tain said. “Our hard work paid off.”

Coach Dean Bar­rett was re­ally proud of the en­tire team and said there is no “I” in team.

“These young hockey play­ers are a re­ally great coach­able group of kids,” the coach said. “They get along great, on and off the ice.”

How­ever, the tro­phy pre­sented was too heavy for the young play­ers’ team skate.

The host team, the Har­bour Grace’s CeeBees, won the bronze with a record of 2-2-1, tal­ly­ing 23 goals and let­ting in 18.

There was a minute of si­lence prior to the cham­pi­onship game in mem­ory of the Hum­boldt Bron­cos, the ju­nior hockey team in­volved in a fa­tal crash in Saskatchewan re­sult­ing in 15 deaths. Coaches, par­ents and play­ers donned green rib­bons on Satur­day in sup­port the #Hum­boldtStrong move­ment.
