Sackville squad hosting Titan Your Skates
Annual girls’ high school hockey tournament set for Nov. 16-18
The Tantramar Regional High School ladies hockey Titans will host their annual Titan Your Skates 2018 tournament at the Tantramar Veterans Memorial Civic Centre from Nov. 16-18.
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.
Some 200 athletes, coaches and team officials, as well as families and fans, make the event a major boost to the Sackville fall sports and tourism calendar. Businesses in the town have become strong supporters of the event and the economic boost to the business sector is growing with each event.
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.
