The Local 1928 hockey tournament took place April 8th to 12th at the old arena in Truro. In the 12-team tournament, it was Point Tupper (drawing on reserves from the ULW program at the Springhill campus of NSCC) who carried the day with a win over the team from Emera Utility Services. Many thanks to Daniel Hancock for taking on the organization for this year’s tournament.
