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.
