What a weekend! Sun, fun and a Tournament victory in at the St. Catherine's Garden City Early Bird Tournament!
The Nepean Raiders Minor Atom B Black team went undefeated for the weekend, played against some very strong Southern Ontario A Teams and won several of their games, coming from behind, and by one goal. The effort this weekend was outstanding and these players deserved this win! Thank you to all the coaches, volunteers and parents for making this all possible. What a way to start the year!
