The red carpet was rolled out at Barbara Ann Scott Arena a few nights ago to honour the champions from the Ottawa West Golden Knights (OWGK) Major Pee Wee team. The Knights have won two prestigious tournaments this season! Sunday, January 13, in Forest, Ontario, the team claimed the North American Silver Stick Championship title. And get this? Two weeks before that, the local boys won the Bell Capital Cup in their division.
Congratulations to players Lewis Angel, Ben Bartholomew, Matthaus Besier, Micah Black, Eric Conley, Lucas Del Castillo, Antonio DePalo, Max Dragon, Conor Gilhooly, Evan Hamilton, Dylan Lajeunesse, Derek Lund, Cameron Scrivens, Luke Vandenberg, Alexandre Wall, Ryan Walsh and Spencer Woodman. Head coach Joe Dragon, assistant coaches Rob Vandenberg and Scott Woodman, manager Rob Scrivens and trainer Steve Lajeunesse helped them make it happen.
The Major Pee Wees were saluted prior to a home game that saw the OWGK Junior B team face off against the Metcalfe Jets for a spot in the playoffs.
