It wasn’t even close. Four quick goals early in the first period. It would have been enough.
In a fourth attempt to defeat Lac Seul in midget A-side finals at the Little Bands Native Youth Hockey Tournament, Sandy Lake finally did good. The team skated to an easy 10-1 rout of Lac Seul to claim top spot. The excitement was evident for the Sandy Lake players as they celebrated each goal with unbridled, youthful enthusiasm. Lac Seul had eased past all their opponents in the six-day tournament in Sioux Lookout. But Sandy Lake came to play right from the start, leaving Lac Seul wondering what went wrong.
It was the fourth straight time the two communities met in the midget final, but this time around, Sandy Lake proved to be too much, putting together a solid team effort, backed by strong goaltending.
The annual tournament featured over 400 players from 36 teams from First Nations in the Sioux Lookout area.
In bantam A-side action, Kasabonika beat Sachigo Lake, while Sandy Lake also won A-side championships in the peewee and novice division. Lac Seul won the atom A-side championship.
