I thought our guys came out, good focus on the execution today and I thought…it was good intensity and we played well,” he said. “It was tonnes of fun doing this this year. I am glad the kids had a good time.”

For Team Halton-Peel, head coach Marcus Obal was proud of his team’s effort. “I think the kids played really well. We’re a younger team.
