When it comes to the ME072 Peewee team for 2018, some players had been part of the gang for a few years and some players were new. But under the leadership of Coach Joe Couto, Jay Ramrekersingh, David Valentini, Mark Chamberland and Clark Aitken, all the players worked their systems, hustled for every point and came out with the gold medal at the end of the season.
There were overtime periods, penalties, and mistakes but through thick and thin one thing remained the same. Each player was in it for the team. They accepted their losses and learned from them. They always held their heads high and never gave up.
Long after these boys hang up their skates, they will remember the team dinners, the away tournaments, and the friendships.
This is what hockey is all about. Thank you to the volunteers, parents and players who made this epic season possible.
