Tough loss at EDZA West tournament opener for Canadiens

Early Friday afternoon, the Fredericton Peewee AAA Canadiens travelled to “the Barn” in Hartland to take on the Moncton Hawks for their first game of the annual EDZA West tournament.

The Habs suffered another blow in the third as the Hawks scored their fifth goal… and the final one of the game, leaving the Canadiens far back and unable to catch despite notable efforts.

A tough 5 – 0 loss for the Fredericton teammates but disappointment is not defeat! The Habs have more battles to fight… and win!!!

Three cheers for #46 Tyler Leaman who earned the Player of the Game title!
