The West Hill minor atom A team brought home the silver medal from the annual Silver Stick Tournament held in Vaughn recently.
At the tourney, which ran from Dec. 27 to 29, West Hill beat the Georgetown Raiders 7-1 and the Innisfil Winterhawks 1-0. They then lost to the Vaughn Rangers 1-0.
West Hill won against the Humber Valley Sharks 3-0 in the semifinals but ended up losing to the undefeated Vaughn team 2-0 in the championship game.
“We have an enthusiastic group of boys who played their hearts out at the Silver Stick tournament,” said Carrie Gorman, team manager.
“I believe that if our team continues to play the way they did in this past tournament they could win their division in the playoff season.”
The West Hill team is currently in fourth place in the East Greater Toronto Hockey League division with a record of 18 wins, seven losses and three ties.
The team’s next tournament is the Areos Tournament at Chesswood Arena from Jan. 11 to 13.
