Cornwall Ontario — There were no fights or blood shed Wednesday evening at the Civic Complex, just glory and bragging rights for the St. Joseph’s Secondary School hockey team. Over a thousand people were in attendance to watch the St. Joe’s Panthers clad in white, red, and blue defeat the Holy Trinity Falcons clad in green and gold with a convincing 7-4 victory. Cole Beckstead sealed the game with an empty netter in the final minute of play.
Yes the St. Joesph’s Secondary School hockey players were the winners on the ice, and they proudly held the Bishop Cup after the game, however the winners off the ice were those who use the services of the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank in Cornwall. Admission was $2 or two non perishable food items, and all the proceeds benefited that local charity.
The Seeker would like to extend congratulations to both teams and the organizers on an excellent hockey game and a wonderful charity fundraising event!
