2005 NATIONAL ABORIGINAL HOCKEY
MIRAMACHI, NEW BRUNSWICK (APRIL 17-23, 2005)
Congratulations to the Team Atlantic Male
(14-17 yr old) Hockey Team who came back with a solid performance earning
a Silver Medal at the national championships!
Team Atlantic capped off a tremendous week of very exciting hockey with a
thrilling 7-6 victory over Team Saskatchewan in the semi final game on
Friday before losing 4-3 in OT (overtime) to Ontario North in the
championship final on Saturday evening before a packed house at the
Miramachi Civic Centre - we are all so very proud of you guys!
Congratulations are also sent out to the Team Atlantic female squad as
they captured their first ever victory at the National Aboriginal Hockey
Championships with a solid 5-0 victory over the North
Territories (NWT). The shutout victory went to goalie Nora Marshall who
was coming off a knee injury to post the win. The female team
performed very respectfully against some very strong squads from
Saskatchewan and Ontario during the course of the week. Way to go
Details of the games will be posted on our site in the next few days as
we finish collecting the information and work to post some highlight
pictures for family and friends to see!
Management & Coaching Staff will be working hard in the upcoming weeks
to possibly organize a Team Atlantic Banquet to be held in a central location
sometime in May or June 2005,
