It was a full day of hockey at the Goderich Memorial Arena Saturday, Jan. 7, that sawa total of nine teams battle it out to claim the championship at the annual Goderich Men’s Rec Hockey Tournament.
Teams came from as far as Stratford to fight for the honour, but it all came down to Elma Logan, from Central Perth County, and Huron Wild, from Exeter and Perth. They were the two teams to make it to the final.
At 9: 30 p. m., the puck dropped before a spattering of fans, who were mostly warming themselves with libations and central heating from the hall overlooking the sheet of ice.
The game was fast paced but one-sided with Huron controlling much of the action during the two 20-minute period game.
And when the final buzzer had gone after the 40 minutes, Huron had blanked Elma Logan 5-0.
Following the game, the two teams shook hands and came together for a group photo before hurrying to get out of their gear and into their cars before the storm outside worsened.
