Jamaica’s remarkable start in their short history as a hockey team continued to impress on Saturday, with two wins on Saturday putting them in their first ever tournament championship game this Sunday.

A day ago, Jamaica’s junior team made their national team debut with a 3-2 victory over the Bradford PS101 select team, winning their first game in a tournament hosted by Jamaica at the Nottawasaga Resort in Allison, Ontario. The team was made up of players that had participated in a training camp session with the team last summer, as well as some players from around the world who had signed up since then. Their first afternoon game saw the team take home the 6-1 victory over the Toronto Vegas Golds, a great moment that put them in the drivers seat for their second game later that night.

Their night game was just as impressive. With all the momentum on their side, the team skated to a 4-0 win in their third and final preliminary round game, earning them a spot in the finals for Sunday. The game, which is set for Noon EST, will be Jamaica’s first chance at a championship, just two days after their very first game.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
