Playoff hockey in July? It’s a ball.
At least, that’s the way it must have felt Sunday for more than 20 teams of Indigenous youth who were capping off a two-day province-wide ball-hockey tournament in Winnipeg.
Kids aged from eight to 16 came from across Manitoba (and Fort Frances, Ontario) to participate in the three-on-three tourney at Norberry-Glenlee Community Centre, with the champs being crowned after a day of playoff matches on Sunday.
It’s the second year the tournament has run. Organizer Matt Nobess said demand has been growing and the response to it from the players has been very positive.
