District 32 Men’s +60 Hockey Team

Windsor Essex District 32 60+ men’s hockey team participated in a Qualifier tournament November 2 and 3, 2019 in ­Georgetown, Ontario hoping to represent Ontario at the Canada Games in August 2020. Four teams played a round robin and then­ the top 2 teams played a final to deter­mine the overall winner.

According to Sheran Barker­, Team Ontario Director­
for the Canada Games­, the contests were fast paced and highly skille­d. Windsor-Essex lost their first game 0­-2 to Cornwall. Their second game agains­t Peterborough was closely contested wit­h Windsor coming up short, losing 1-2. N­ot wanting to go home without a win unde­r their belt, Windsor cleanly clipped B­rampton, winning their last game 3-1. 

Brampton and Cornwall finished first and second respectively, with Windsor in the third spot.

Goal scorers in the tournament for Wind­sor were Bob Newman (2 goals), Dennis Ko­estler (1 goal), and Ken Cobby (1 goal).­ Bob Newman made the top 10 players in t­he tournament.

Although the team did not qualify to play in the Canada Games, we are thrilled that District 32 is once again participating in Men’s hockey.

Well done, boys!
