Bessborough’s grade 5/6 hockey team of 16 players, 14 boys and two girls, made it to the city final championship game at Varsity Arena to play against the Hollycrest Middle School from Etobicoke on March 6.
Though the team lost 5-3, with the winning goals scored in the last 13 seconds of play, they had an excellent season overall, taking the northern conference.
Volunteer head coach Doug Wright, teacher representative Liz Watt, as well as kids from the school’s grades 5 and 6 and members of the community, cheered loudly during the game.
As parent Sarah Crane says, “It was school spirit at its best. Our players walked away with a trophy for second place, but most of all they walked away with great memories and great friends.”
