The West Nipissing Midget House League team were crowned with gold last weekend, earning the top spot at the West Ferris Challenge Cup at the West Ferris Arena in North Bay Nov. 30 to Dec 2.
The team went undefeated throughout the tournament, even winning 6-0 in the gold medal game against the Cobden Muskrats.
Hubert Guindon, head coach, was ecstatic with his team’s performance. “The kids played great all weekend,” he beams. “The gold medal game was a close one despite the score; Cobden was very physical. But I kept telling our players to not play their game, and that we can’t score from the penalty box. We were able to stay out of there, play our game, and slow it down a bit.”
It was the team’s first gold medal win of the year, as they bowed out in the semi’s during their last tournament right here in Sturgeon Falls.
“There’s a big variety of skill on the team, but the perfect thing is that everyone plays together and looks out for one another. It’s great to watch as a coach, to see everyone flying out on all cylinders doing their best. I never have to worry if anyone’s committed or not because I know they are because of how they play as a unit,” Guindon boasts.
