Our Whitefish Bay Predators won the Men’s Hockey Tournament in Shoal Lake from January 18 to 20. It was hosted by Stewart Redsky. We played our first game at 10am Saturday against Pikangikum and we beat them 9 – 2. Our next game that evening, we beat Long Plains 6 – 0. Our third game we won a close one 3 – 2 against Shoal Lake Flyers. Then we met up with Long Plains again in the championship game where we beat them 5 – 4. We were exhausted playing all weekend but somehow managed to win. The last time we were in Shoal Lake was 5 years ago and we won that tournament too with 7 players.
Our team is: Goalie: Everett Cowley, Defencemen: Mario Gauthier, Jamie Mandamin & Dave Crow. Forwards: Rhyse Mandamin, Eli Paul, Maverick Blackhawk, Damien Paypompee & Rodney Crow. (This was NOT an oldtimers tournament!)
