‘NO Mistake – Caribous are Herder champions’
Clarenville wins title in sweep over St. John’s Caps
The Clarenville Ford Caribous senior hockey team gained redemption Saturday night, capturing their fourth Herder Memorial Championship.
With a 6-1 victory over the St. John’s Green Sleeves Senior Caps, the Caribous claimed this year’s Herder trophy in four straight games.
Team Captain Dustin Russell shared the emotions of the team in a post-game telephone interview with The Packet.
“There’s a wide range of emotions right now. I’m obviously elated and happy for the guys on the team that’s their first time winning a Herder.”
Russell says the team came into Game 4 ready to play. But while they cruised to a comfortable 6-1 victory — the Caps scored their only goal in the second period — Russell says they didn’t want to take their opponents for granted.
