Nunavik Nordiks Vs Nepean Wildcats – Girls Midget Hockey Friendship Game

Good morning!! As mentionned in last week’s post, last night, the Sensplex was host to a special event: a friendship game between Nunavik’s girls midget hockey team and Nepean’s Wildcats. More than 80 people gathered to watch and cheer for both teams.

The match was somewhat special as the organisers of this friendship game went through lots of efforts to make it a most memorable evening. To allow you to relive the events as they unfolded, here is a series of photographs. For those who were present, I hope they will bring back great memories! For those who did not attend, hope they will give you a feel for the atmosphere that filled the Mattamy Homes arena.

Thanks to all for a most enjoyable evening!

Third period starts. Score is now 2-2. Sorry! I missed both team's second goal! They scored as I was chatting with the Nordiks' bus driver 😉

Only 11 minutes left in the game.

Everybody, except me, is looking at the other end of the rink where the action is 😉

Let's go girls!

Job well done!
