Yes folks you heard it right.
On February 28 the EMCS (Edward Milne community school) Hockey Academy went face to face against their teachers at the SEAPARC arena. And of course, for students, what better way to miss school then to watch the good old hockey game and indeed it was.
As much as the students wanted the academy to win, the teachers pulled off an 11 to 5 victory. Mr. Barry scored the first goal for the teachers not long after the beginning puck drop, and soon enough Quinton MacDonell scored his first goal to get the students on the board in the first period.
The teachers built up confidence, as they scored more goals but what is a real game of hockey if you don’t have any penalties? For the teachers it seemed they couldn’t stop asking for them, giving the students many opportunities for penalty shots.
As the game progressed the academy fought back hard but it did not seem to be enough to keep the teachers away.
After the amazing efforts shown by the academy and the victory for the teachers, the game ended with a group photo having smiles on every players’ face to show it was all for the love of the game!
