COM­ING HOME WITH TREA­SURE

The Recorder & Times (Brockville) - - SPORTS -

The Brockville Blaz­ers put their stamp on the 24th An­nual Chris Paulin Me­mo­rial Tournament, held in Kanata, last week­end by claim­ing four medals at the event. At the top of the Brockville heap was the ma­jor atom girls and ma­jor midget girls (shown above) get­ting gold medals, while the ma­jor ban­tam girls won sil­ver and the ma­jor atom boys took home bronze. The ma­jor midget girls Blaz­ers swept through the three games they played in the top AA/AAA di­vi­sion be­fore tak­ing down the Ne­pean Blue Devils in the high-scor­ing 53-51 gold-medal game. The ma­jor atom girls Blaz­ers also swept through their com­pe­ti­tion with four con­sec­u­tive wins be­fore dou­bling up the Gatineau Phenix 50-23 in the gold -medal fi­nal. The ma­jor ban­tam girls Blaz­ers earned their way to the fi­nal with a 3-1 record be­fore los­ing a nail-biter 40-37 to the Glouces­ter Wolver­ines in the cham­pi­onship. The ma­jor atom boys Blaz­ers fin­ished out their tournament with a pair of wins and took down the Kingston Im­pact in back-to-back matchups to earn the bronze medal. The ma­jor midget boys Blaz­ers were the only Brockville squad to not win a medal at the tournament and lost all four of their games, de­spite the lo­cal team scor­ing 50-plus points in two of the matchups.
