On the Victoria Day weekend, a group of LCC students put a team together for a ball hockey tournament called Hockey de Rue. The Montreal Canadiens sponsored it and the money raised went to the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation.
We competed against Loyola, Selwyn House, Kuper Academy and many more schools. Our team got off to a slow start by tying our first two games. We won our last and final round-robin game and we placed 8th in the playoff rankings, which meant we had to play the 1st place team.
We pulled off the upset and moved on to the semi-finals. We won a tight game against MNP and met Kuper in the final. We went down by two goals early in the game but with the competitive drive of our team, we managed to tie up the game. At the end of the 3rd period the game was tied 4-4. We went into overtime thanks to the outstanding goaltending of Jordan Itzkovitz ’13. Five minutes into overtime, Nathanael Niedermann ’12 scored to win the game for us!
After a beautiful day of ball hockey, we were awarded the trophy for winning the tournament and another trophy for raising the most money. Our team raised a total of $11, 219!—Giordano Saputo ’13
