Congratulations to our Varsity Boys Hockey Team on their Halton Championship Win.  The boys played a strong team game and smothered Abbey Park with a winning combination of puck control, aggressive forecheck and stingy defense en route a very convincing 2-0 Win.  Although they waited until the 3rd period to give our MMR fans their first goal to celebrate, Abbey Park was unable to muster much of an attack against the relentless defensive efforts of our players and ended up with only 10 shots on net for the game.  The team would like to thank all of the great fans who came out and made their presence known throughout the game. The cheering and energy was appreciated.

The team has been on an impressive run since their sluggish start to the season, having lost only 3 of their last 14 games culminating with a strong playoff performance (and today's Championship Win!) with the team and starting Goalie Seamus Flynn surrendering only 1 goal in our last 3 games.

The team looks to continue its winning ways and qualify for the Provincial Championships starting on Monday as they travel to Oakville to face off against Blakelock for a berth in the GHAC Semi Finals. Good Luck Boys!
