Hockey Tournament

During the holidays, JJ and his team played in a tournament. This one was put on by the local folk, so he didn't have to travel, which made it good for us too. There were 6 teams, 2 of them from Carleton Place.

Both Carleton Place teams were undefeated in their 2 preliminary games. The first for our guys was a 7-2 early morning game against Almonte. I got to see most of the game, but I didn't bring the camera along.

I did bring the camera for the noon game against Perth. Our boys won by a score of 2-0 in a really well played game. It was close and intense, and I thought it was the best game of the day. This shot is of the team's best player attempting to score.

They advanced to the Championship game to play the CP Novice B2 team, our team being Novice B1. I don't think the 1 or 2 make any difference as they are two pretty equal teams.

In this game, the B2 team defeated JJ's team in another lose game which ended 5-4.

I don't get too many action shots of Jonathan as he plays back on defence. So he is usually at some distance from the camera or has his back to me. But here are a few from that game.

I just love their competent little selves out there.

He certainly has come a long way since his first tries!

Some good action shots of Jonathan and it seems like only yesterday that you were showing us his first attempts at hockey.
