This past weekend, ball hockey teams gathered at the Barrie Ball Hockey Club for the OBHA Men’s B Canada Cup 4v4 Championship and what a tournament!
If this was the preview for the Provincial Championships in August, we will indeed be in for a treat as the level of competition was simply wonderful. At this year’s tourney, there was very little separating all the teams as this was the most balanced tournament in years.
The excitement of the preliminary robin would continue into the Final 4 with the Penetang Blazers playing the London Turtles and in the Battle of Barrie we had the Maple Kings against the eventual champions, Kingsman.
The final was set and the Kingsman continued to score early in games and were up 2-0 after seven minutes. They would hold off the Turtles offence and win the championship 5-3.
Congratulations to all the teams for their participation in the 2021 Men’s B Canada Cup 4v4 Championships and we look forward to next weekend and the A, Masters and Coed Championships.
