Hockey Night in Carlisle continued this past Saturday Night with our first of 2 nights dedicated to the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative. It was a night filled with great performances on the ice by the players and in the rink from the parents. The Tri-City Titans and the Royal City Kings were in town and helped us to over fill our donation bucket for the Flamborough Food Bank. Our HNIC sponsor for the evening was Christa’s Cakes and thanks to her amazing cupcakes and the 50-50 draw we were able to raise over $600 that will be donated to the Juravinski Cancer Centre in Hamilton.
The charity was not to be outdone by the hockey on this night as the Peewee team continues to fill the net. Coupled that with the best all-around defensive effort of the year and some huge saves by the goaltenders and they were able to shut out the Titans 7-0.
The Minor Bantams, inspired by the effort in front of them from the Peewee’s went out and put up another amazing effort. Controlling the puck and the play for most of the game and coming away with their own big 9-0 win over the Royal City Kings.
The CHILL Hockey Fights Cancer nights continue on Saturday, November 17th when the Peewee and Major Bantam teams take the ice against the Tri-City Titans and the Peel Predators. Hope that night night can be just as successful as we continue to raise money for the Juravinski Cancer Centre In Hamilton.
Thanks to to everyone involved for helping to make it a great night!
