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.
