Finally, the Lake of the Woods Girls Hockey Association showcased both their Atom and Peewee Rep Teams this weekend on their first travelling tournament to Warroad, Minnesota. The atoms brought home a silver medal, while the peewees came in fifth.
The tournament brought teams from Kenora, Fort Frances, as well as seasoned teams from Grand Forks and Roseau Minnesota. Kenora's Peewees held their standards of playing a dignified hockey game, but went lost against a tough Warroad squad to bring them to 5th place on Sunday morning.
"Our girls played a clean game and with the tough competition in the USA, I'm proud of their efforts. This is a new concept to Lake of the Woods girls hockey and development is the key to a great program," says head coach John Fraser.
The newly developed atom travelling team played hard against the competent U.S. teams, defeating both Warroad and Grand Forks, only to face Roseau again Sunday afternoon. The atoms came away with a well-deserved silver medal.
"Having an Atom rep team is new for girls hockey in Kenora, and having the opportunity to showcase our your athletes in a huge hockey town was a great learning experince for them," says coach Mike Ricklefs.
