PeeWee Hornets end up HAPPY in Halifax!
The Norwood Hornets PeeWee Rep team travelled to Halifax Nova Scotia for a tournament at the end of March.  The team attended the 40th anniversary of the annual SEDMHA hockey tournament, which hosts over 278 teams in all divisions from Novice to Midget.

The PeeWee team represented Norwood Minor Hockey well by finishing the tournament with a Championship win!   

The SEDMHA tournament from March 30 to April 2, saw the Hornets playing some of their best hockey all year as they won 6 straight games to claim the Peewee Odyssey Championship. With 278 teams and some 6,000 participants it is one of the biggest tournaments in Canada with divisions from Novice to Midget. A great effort from the Hornets players made the 32 fans who travelled from Norwood very excited to cheer on their team. The team even had some fans from across the east coast who come to cheer them on. 

The Final Game of the Tournament was played in Coal Harbour, which is the home rink of NHL Stars Sydney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon!  The amazing facility in Coal Harbour has tributes to both players in the facility.

While in Halifax the Hornets had some amazing experiences and got to visit Peggy's Cove, and a number of Halifax highlights.  The team also was able to visit the Canadian Navy Training Centre in Halifax, where they received a tour from Todd Leeper a Norwood native but is now stationed in Halifax as member of the Navy.  These were experiences that the players and family members will never forget!
