St. Anthony played host this year to the 2019 All Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Midget D Hockey Tournament.
Six teams from across the island – St. Anthony Polars, Bay D’Espoir Blizzards, Bishop’s Falls Midgets, Bonavista Cabots, North East Eagles and United Town Pirates – squared off from April 22 to 24 at the Polar Centre.
The North East Eagles (Torbay) were victorious this year, winning the final over the Bonavista Cabots by a score of 7-0. Goalie Brandon Summers registered the shutout.
Parks and Recreation director Scott Coish was pleased with how the event went, feeling the attendance was strong and the games were competitive.
