Char-Lan girls open with victory at hockey provincials in Kenora
It was a solid start on Monday in Kenora, as the girls hockey team from Char-Lan DHS skated to a 2-1 win over the host St. Thomas Aquinas Saints.
The Crusaders, undefeated champions of SD&G and EOSSAA, entered the provincial A/AA tournament as the second seed overall.
Just getting to the competition in far northwestern Ontario was an adventure, as the girls spent last week fundraising and planning their trip. They flew out on Sunday to Winnipeg, and were then bused to Kenora.
The girls were scheduled to play twice yesterday (March 10) to complete the round-robin portion of the competition, but results were not available before
went to press. For updates, please go online to

OFSAA action continues today (March 11) , with playoffs, and tomorrow, with the medal games.
The Crusaders are coached by Sean O’Farrell, Darrell McDonell, Michael McDonell, and Heather Petrie.
