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!
