It was a golden weekend for some of Nova Scotia’s top teams.

Major Midget Atlantics

The Halifax Macs, the 2013-14 Nova Scotia Major Midget Hockey League champions, went undefeated at the 2014 Major Midget Atlantics in New Glasgow to capture the Atlantic trophy.

The Macs topped New Brunswick’s Saint John Vitos 5-4 in the gold medal game to claim the tournament’s top prize.

Luc Poirier had the game winner and two helpers while 
Johnny Jones scored a hat trick for Halifax. Justin Doiron also scored for the Macs.

Reilly Pickard stopped all 18 shots fired his way after he replaced Justin Ritcey between the pipes for Halifax.

The Macs will now represent the Atlantic region at the Telus Cup in Moose Jaw later this month. Good luck and congrats on your victory!

Irving Oil Challenge Cup (Major Bantam)

The Bubba Ray’s Gulls brought home the Irving Oil Challenge Cup from Mount Pearl on Sunday thanks to a 3-2 victory over New Brunswick’s Moncton Hawks in the gold medal game. Shane Bowers was named the Gulls’ Star of the Game.

The Gulls were perfect throughout the tournament posting a 5-0 record.

In Thursday’s first game, the Gulls topped St. John’s 4-3 and Bowers was named Star of the Game. That was the first of two wins for the Gulls on Thursday as they beat tournament host Tri Com 8-1 in the final game of the day. Matthew Ormon picked up the Star of the Game in that one.

A 10-1 win over Charlottetown on Friday (Star of the Game: Bradley Shaw) and a 2-1 victory over Moncton (Star of the Game: Nicholas Fewer) to close out the round robin helped pave the way for the Gulls gold medal game appearance.

Congrats on your win, Gulls!

Female Midget Atlantics

After being stuck in the ice aboard a ferry on Wednesday night and missing the first day of tournament play, the Pro Cresting Penguins finally hit the ice in Deer Lake on Friday morning where they represented Nova Scotia.

The Nova Scotia Female Midget Hockey League champions from East Hants lost a tough 1-0 decision in their opening game against Newfoundland’s Central but rebounded in their second game as they topped host Western 8-0.

With Claire Warren between the pipes, Madison Clarke’s overtime winner helped the Pens improve to 2-1 at the tournament with a 3-2 win over PEI on Saturday. The Pens closed out the tournament round robin with a 1-1 tie with the Moncton Rockets.

The Penguins lost a heartbreaker 2-1 to Moncton in Sunday’s gold medal game. Taylor Keeping had the Pens’ lone goal while Claire Warren was stellar between the pipes.

Congrats to the Pens on your silver medal! We’re proud of your performance and perseverance!
