The TNCHL's inaugural season ended successfully and WOLVERINES won the CUP!
TNCHL NEWS March 28,
WOLVERINES WIN THE CUP!
In an exciting game filled
with end-to-end action, the Wolverines won
the first ever TNCHL Cup game over the Sharks on Saturday March 27!
The Wolverines took an early 1-0 lead on a power-play goal. But the
goal-tending was superb and by the end of two periods the score was just
3-2 for the Wolverines. Then, the Wolverines managed a couple of quick
goals at the start of the third. The Sharks came back with a power-play
goal but in the end it was not enough and the Wolverines won 6-3. Sammy
Alain scored his first hat-trick of the season for the Wolverines.
Everyone agreed it was a thrilling end to a great season.
TNCHL Director of Hockey
Development Eddie Choi was on hand to present the Cup to the victors and had
this to say:
"The game was intense and a lot of fun. It's great to see the way these
teams have developed over the course of the year. I'm looking forward to next
Skills and teamwork were
also in great evidence at the Semi-Final game between the Redhawks and the
Sharks on Thursday night. The Sharks took an early lead, but the game was
a nail-biter right up until the end with the Redhawks pouring on the pressure
in the second and third periods. In the end, they couldn't get a final goal
past goalie Arjan Rai-Randhawa and the Sharks won 4-3.
Thanks to all the volunteers,
skills leaders, coaches, refs, parents and
players for helping to make the TNCHL the great success it has been in
its inaugural year. Like Eddie, we are all looking forward to next year!

"We reviewed nine studies from Canada, nine from the U.S. and two from Finland, and the findings from all but one support recommendations that children should play in non-contact hockey leagues until they are at least at the bantam level", said Alison Macpherson, a professor in the School of Kinesiology and Health Science at York.
