Hosers wash out opposition to ice the Capital Ward Cup

By: John Dance

Victory. Again.

The Old Ottawa East Hosers triumphed in the Capital Ward Cup, the pinnacle of shinny supremacy in the heart of the nation’s capital.

For the sixth time in its 11-year history, the Hosers took the cup on home ice at Brantwood Park, beating the Old Ottawa South Moose in the final by a score of 6-3.

Exhibiting considerable consistency and great defence, the Hosers defeated the Moose 7-3 and the Glebe GoalGetters 7-3 in the preliminary games.

While some might argue that the level of play wasn’t quite at the NHL level, the co-ed teams played with polite intensity, patiently waiting for opponents to dig the puck out of Brantwood’s snowbanks, and in the case of the Hosers’ opponents, the back of the net.

The three stars of the tournament were Capital Ward Councillor Shawn Menard who organized the tournament and stood all morning in the bitter cold, timing and scoring the games; his staffer Miles Krauter who helped organize and officiated all games; and Marco DeNigris who, with his Brantwood rink team, had the ice in great shape despite the major storms of the previous week.
