HORNETS BECOME THE 2nd TNC Hockey CHAMPIONS OF THE PEEWEE
The Hornets all year long managed to establish themselves as a tough opponent
and come playoff time they showed that would not be easy for other teams to
beat them. In the 1st round they eliminated the RedHawks in 2 games.
On the other hand the Peewee Sharks had their ups and downs but overall they
played well during the regular season and they managed to come victorious
from the Barrie tournament in January. The Sharks had to face a feisty Wolverines
squad in the 1st round but they managed to win the series in 2 straight games.
Going into the finalsThe Sharks were the underdogs and the Hornets the favourites.
This game of the series
was probably the easiest for the Hornets as they beat the Sharks 5-0. Nothing
seemed to be working for the Sharks.
This game of the series
was probably one of the best in the playoffs. The
Sharks trail 1-0 but they manage not only to tie but to score a 2nd goal and
then prevent the Hornets from scoring. Amazing game for the Sharks and they
This game of the serieswas
the most dramatic as the whole championship was at stake.The Sharks strike
first at the beginning of the 1st period but the Hornets answer back before
the end of the period. In the 2nd the Sharks "bite" again and score
their second goal. The Hornets again come back and score to tie the game,
seconds after the Sharks' goal.
Both teams start with a
lot of energu the 3rd period and they both know that "last goal wins"
will be the trend for this period. Hornets are the lucky ones to score one
more and win the championship. A great series and a great rivalry.
TNC Hockey started
the season with 8 teams in two divisions. We witnessed a lot of quality and
exciting hockey and the new parents were thrilled to be part of the league.
The ravest reviews came from the players themselves and when playoff time
came they showed all of us why hockey can be the most exciting of team sports.
What an exciting season we had!
The final event
of the TNC Hockey season will take place on Sat April 16 at Forest Hill Arena.
We are celebrating the end of the season with the best of the 3 teams (all

"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.
