Great hockey may be closer than you think
I decided to use my Saturday off to take in some hockey other than NHL games.
The Flyers Cup, a local high school championship tournament, took place this weekend with the finals televised on CN8. Competing were Holy Ghost Prep and La Salle High School. Both teams fought hard down to the end, with La Salle bursting out 3 goals in the last half of the third to win the game. La Salle will proceed to play against the winner of the Penguins Cup.
These boys, all Philadelphia students, played exceptionally well. They did everything you want to see in great hockey – shot blocking, creative passing, hard work along the boards, tough hits, and spectacular shots.
Granted, not every play worked as well as it might at higher levels. But it was highly entertaining to watch these young men use anything they could think of to win. Thanks to both teams for a relaxing afternoon of hockey.
