Eight high school girls’ ice squads – seven from New Brunswick and one from Nova Sco­tia – will take part. The event has be­come a kick­off for girls’ high school hockey in the prov­ince, as par­tic­i­pat­ing teams get their first look at teams they may face later in the sea­son.

Red Di­vi­sion teams in­clude Rothe­say Red Hawks; Mi­ramichi Val­ley Pu­lamoo (Mi­ramichi); Har­ri­son Trim­ble Tro­jans (Monc­ton) and host Tantra­mar Lady Ti­tans.

With the Blue Di­vi­sion, Car­leton North Lady Stars (Bris­tol); Cen­tral Kings Ga­tors (Cam­bridge, N.S.); École Marie Es­ther Vik­ings (Ship­pa­gan) and Saint John Lady Grey­hounds take to the ice.

All games will be played at the lo­cal civic cen­tre and are sched­uled from 3 p.m., Fri­day through to Sun­day’s cham­pi­onship fi­nal at 1:45 p.m. Teams play three roundrobin matches be­fore the top two fin­ish­ers in each di­vi­sion ad­vance to crossover semi-fi­nals.
