The Al Reid Memorial Hockey Tournament in Niagara Falls, Ontario is an annual pilgrimage for the Zeton Zoomers hockey team. For the past seven years, the age-defying “Over 35” veterans have been showcasing their skills in the weekend-long competition, while raising money for local charities.
This year, the Zoomers began by facing off against the Niagara South Oldtimers; the Oldtimers stormed back from a two-goals deficit to win the game 6-2. The second game against the G&S Old Macks was much closer, with the Macks holding a slender 1-0 lead heading into the final minutes of the game. The final game saw the Zoomers battle the Galvcast Oldtimers. The Zeton team played with heart, but Galvcast proved too strong offensively as they handed the Zoomers their second 6-2 loss.
Although the Zoomers failed to advance to the championship game, they represented the company with distinction and took home some valuable lessons for next year: practice more and recruit a bunch of young ringers!
