Midget A Silver at Montreal CanAm

by Lynne Dinsmore

The OGHA Midget A team traveled to Montreal November 29 – December 1 to compete in the Can/Am tournament.

We had a win, a tie, and a loss and ended up playing in the game for gold on Sunday morning.  We came away with Silver medals; it was a tight game with a 1-0 score.

 On Saturday the teams participated in a Skills & Drills Competition.  Each team entered 4 skaters for a relay race, and a shooter/goalie duo for shots for/against competition.

 The Midget team entered Trista Durward, Madison Craig, Sammy Green, and Kyla Boyle for the relay; they really were the ‘winning team’, by outskating everyone else!

Jacquelyn Clark scored the most goals for while Ryleigh McIlveen shone in the net!  Our team represented very well!
