CAPE BRETON WEST ISLANDERS WIN FIRST-EVER ATLANTIC MIDGET CHAMPIONSHIP

The Islanders will represent the Atlantic region at the TELUS Cup later this month

 

MIRAMICHI, N.B. — The Cape Breton West Islanders have extended their history-making season.


The Islanders defeated New Brunswick’s Moncton Flyers 3-2 this afternoon at the 2017 Major Midget Atlantic Championship in Miramichi, N.B.

 

Jacob Hudson scored a pair of goals in the first period and Matthew MacNeil added a single tally in the second that proved to be the game-winner as the Nova Scotia representatives narrowly edged the Flyers 3-2 to capture their first-ever Atlantic championship. 

 

Colten Ellis earned the victory in goal for Cape Breton West.

 

Last month, the Cape Breton West Islanders made history when they won their first-ever Major Midget provincial title by sweeping the Dartmouth-based Steele Subaru Major Midgets in a best-of-five Nova Scotia Major Midget Hockey League final. The win earned the Islanders their first-ever berth in the Atlantic championship.

 

The Islanders will now represent Atlantic Canada at the TELUS Cup in Prince George, B.C. later this month. The national championship runs from April 24-30.

 

Hockey Nova Scotia would like to congratulate the Islanders on their victory and wish them the best of luck at the national championship.
