On Saturday January 23 the Port Credit Hockey Association held its annual Michael Newnham Memorial Coaches Game. Players representing various Port Credit hockey teams donned their skates for an epic battle.
It was a fast paced game with each Team demonstrating skill and agility. Trailing by one and in the dying minutes of regulation play, the Blue Team pulls its goaltender for an extra attacker. Tremendous pressure is placed on the White Team that results in a goal and puts the game in to overtime.
Although only playing for pride, both benches pull out all the stops, but couldn’t put the puck past the stalwart goaltending. Finally, with seconds remaining and a shootout certain, the Blue Team snuck the puck behind the White Team goaltender to secure the win. A roar from the fans filled the arena and the Blue Team filed on to the ice to congratulate their Teammates. Certainly one of the best Coaches games in recent memory.
A special thank you to the players, coaches and volunteers who made this an exciting and memorable event; and it would not have been the event that it was without the full house of fans supporting their favourite coach.
We hope to see you all next year!!!
