Blazing Blades – 2016 Champions!
Sunday marked the triumphant return of my Coquitlam hockey team, the Blazing Blades, to the status of Div 1 champions! You may recall that it 2014 we won the coveted trophy. Last year we did not, but this year we had our strongest season ever, going 21-3-1 in the regular season. We went 2-1 in the first round of the playoffs, which was a round robin, which was good enough to get us to the finals to face the Ringers, the only team who had beat us in round 1.
When all was said and done, the final score was 3-0 for us, and so the trophy is back in our hands!
Isn’t the trophy pretty? And just like the Stanley Cup, players get to take the cup home for a week. I can’t wait to get my week – I’m going to take it in to work to show it off!
Of course, no victory celebrate would be complete without a drink from the trophy!
All in all, it was a great season – I’m really lucky to get to play with such a fun and talented group of women!
