WINDSOR, N.S. – Harrison Trimble High School of Moncton, N.B. defeated neighbouring Ecole Mathieu Martin of Dieppe, 2-1 in a shoot-out during the final game of the Birthplace of Hockey Tournament in Windsor.
The two New Brunswick teams were tied after five minutes in overtime and it took six shots apiece in a shoot-out before the game was decided on Nov. 5, 2017.
Avon View Avalanche head Coach Mark Tye said he was grateful to all of the volunteers who made the tournament a reality.
“We had a great volunteer staff and without a doubt one of the, if not the strongest high school A tournaments to be played anywhere in Nova Scotia during the 2017-2018 hockey season,” Tye said.
Of the 15 games held throughout the tournament over the weekend, Tye said two were blowouts, but the remainder were exciting to watch.
"It certainly would have been nice for the hometown Avalanche to be in one of two of Saturday’s semi-finals and to look and see you missed it by one goal was hard,” he said. “But we have a talented team this season and looking forward to getting back into the Valley League Schedule.”
The Avalanche are heading to Bridgewater on Nov. 10 to play against Park View Education Centre and return home Nov. 11 to play Yarmouth at 7:00 p.m.
