23 Jun 2014 MRB Speedsquares | Play On!
‘Hockey night in Canada’s Play On! is the largest participatory sports festival in Canada’, so of course, we were there to be part of it!
There was hype and excitement leading up to the weekend, and by the time the team convened at the MRB woodshop for a Friday night beer, the whole city was abuzz.
This weekend was the opportunity for anyone to showcase the skills they spent a lifetime mastering. Who can’t recall a childhood street hockey tale?
Saturday morning came, and so did the rain. The MRB Speedsquares hit the ground and a convincing first game win of 7-1 set the tone for what was to come. Despite the rain, the team continued to dominate, and with game scores of, 13-2, 6-2, 8-2, 4-1, they were ready for finals.
Somehow, amidst the excitement….and rain, the team got lost in the hype and missed start time for their chance at the Redwood Cup. We’re all winners Speedsquares;)
