Staff and volunteers at Glovertown Gar­dens and Lewis­porte Sta­dium worked this week to host a pee­wee hockey mega tour­na­ment. Lewis­porte was fill­ing in as host after an am­mo­nia leak shut down the orig­i­nal host – Gander’s Steele Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

Round robin play di­vided 16 teams into four di­vi­sions. Di­vi­sions 1 and 4 played in Glovertown while di­vi­sions 2 and 3 faced off in Lewis­porte. In di­vi­sion 4, The Bon­av­ista Cabots took gold, Stephenville took sil­ver, and She­shat­shui took bronze. In di­vi­sion 3, gold went to Grand Falls-Wind­sor, sil­ver to Har­bour Grace, and bronze to Marys­town. In di­vi­sion 2 Beothic beat out Green Bay South for gold, leav­ing Greeen Bay South with sil­ver while Gander took bronze. In di­vi­sion 1, Twill­ingate, de­feated a com­bined team from Glovertown and Bay d’Es­poir for gold in a shootout, leav­ing Bay d’Es­poir/Glovertown with sil­ver. Pla­cen­tia took bronze.

It wasn’t the only hockey hap­pen­ing over Easter hol­i­days in the prov­ince. Close to 5,500 play­ers and 350 teams laced up and took to the ice for tour­na­ments this week.
