PeeWee Hornets end up HAPPY in Halifax!
Submitted By Jennifer Barton on Tue 04 04, 17
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.

8.20 – Marshall Flynn – Riley Thompson

3rd period

7.49 – Riley Thompson

Devin Creasy earned his second shutout, Hornets player of the game was Henry Walsh.  The Hornets learned that most of the East Coast team play 3 – 10 minute periods all year and this tournament is 3 – 15 minute periods, so the Hornets seemed to be able to out skate the other teams near the end of most games.

8.40 – Hunter O’Connor – Andrew Beriault

Bit of a bizarre game, couple of very young officials who lacked experience struggled with calls on both teams, Marshall Flynn scored the game winner in overtime while we were shorthanded, Marshall was also selected as Hornets game MVP.

Brody Graham was the Hornets game MVP.

This one was a wild game, up against a smaller but very quick team from Shediac New Brunswick who were ready to compete , up 4 – 3 with 3 mins and 30 seconds to go the Hornets were given three straight penalties and finished the last minute of the game  2 men short with the Predators pulling there goalie for a 6- 3 advantage power play, Daniel Begg, Henry Walsh, Mitchell Crowley, Riley Thompson and Brody Graham were superb in killing it off and letting us avoid overtime and earning the championship, Riley Thompson was the Hornets game MVP.

All the players received Tournament hoodies, gold medallions and of course the championship banner which will hang at the Community centre.

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!
