SHAWVILLE March 22-25, 2018
With two out of three divisions hitting overtime in their final games on Sunday, the return of an annual hockey tournament brought the weekend to a close with nearly everyone on the edge of their seats.
As over 300 hockey players hit the ice and more fists flew than elbows, the 19th edition of the Flying Elbows Men’s Hockey Tournament ruled the Shawville Arena, especially on the Sunday afternoon games.
The first of the nail-biters began at 1 p.m. with the beginning of the finals games, as the C division teams The Benders and Stanton’s Bar kicked things off. Early on, Stanton’s seemed the clear winner, but the last minute of the game threw that into a tailspin.
While the scoreboard read 6-4, The Benders weren’t about to go without a fight. Netting one more in the last minute, the Zamboni was nearly on the ice when they tied the game in the final milliseconds of the third period.
