The Sabres traveled up the 401 to Dorchester this weekend. Facing a full list of tough new teams the Sabres needed to play top level hockey to compete. Boy did they!
The boys played great team hockey in pool play. Being down in all three games, they never gave up. Scoring late in all three games to either tie or win the Sabres pushed themselves into the Semi finals for the third straight tourney.
Prior to the semi finals the Sabres and families had a team event at Palasad in London. Great place and a great group of people made for a fun night.
In the semi finals on Sunday morning the Sabres ran into the best team we've played this season. Overmatched, the Sabres gave it a great effort and kept our attitudes positive as Stratford team came out with the win. Stratford went on to win the finals over a team the Sabres had beat earlier in the tourney.
That's three straight tourneys where the Sabres have only lost to the eventual champions. Very impressive!
As a coach and father, I could not be prouder of the way this team, parents group and fans represent LaSalle Minor Hockey Association.
