Golden Moment for West End U18-A2 Marks an Era
West End U18-A2 captured their second tournament of the 2022-23 season with a win at the CanAm Challenge Cup in Pierrefonds, QC on February 17-19, 2023.
After four round robin wins over teams from Forest Hills (Toronto), Vaughan (Toronto), and Barry’s Bay/Eganville, West End came out on top with a 6-2 win in the gold medal game against an undefeated team from Hyde Park (Boston).
With a team roster of fifteen players, thirteen (all born in 2005) made the trip. The event marks the end of a minor league era and a moment of great pride for the team’s staff, who watched their last WEHL player go through the ranks. For the many years of volunteer service, a special thanks goes out to Head Coach, Andrew Casey; Assistant Coach Michael Collins; Trainer, Mark Blackburn and Manager, George Thorne.
Congratulations West End U18 A2!
The team captured their first championship in November 2022 when they won gold at the Jean Labonté Tournament.
