Hockey Tournament

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Sweet Pea's hockey team went to Cornwall to participate in the 28th annual Cornwall Girls' Hockey Association tournament last weekend. They went 1-1-1 for the weekend.

The girls and parents were excited to get out of school a little early to head down to Cornwall for the weekend. Sweet Pea sang in the Remembrance Day ceremony in the choir in the morning and I signed her out right after. I had the whole day off work and still had some food to pack up for the weekend, so we hung out at home a little while and I packed the cooler.

The team played Friday evening at 4:30 and beat our first opponents. The arena was really new, and very nice. The only quirky thing about it was that we coaches had to walk on the ice to get to the bench. I definitely felt naked with shoes on walking across the ice!

We had time for a swim after supper on Friday and the girls had a lot of fun playing hide and go seek at the hotel when that was done.

On Saturday, we had a team breakfast, then went to the arena for our 10:30 match-up with one of the Cornwall teams. The girls did their best, which is all I ask of them, and we ended up losing the game. After a meeting with the parents, we had a great team lunch together around noon. The service was great, and the kids' meals were cheap. We had to win our Saturday afternoon game and some other teams had to lose theirs for us to advance. We tied the game 1-1 so we were done.

Most of the families stayed at the hotel Saturday night even though we didn't have any games on Sunday. We ordered pizza from Cornwall BBQ and stayed for the dance party. The girls were showing off their moves on the dance floor, and enjoying the chips and glow necklaces and they got to stay up really late.

I think everyone had a good time at the tournament and slept really well on Sunday night. Even the coach.
