On November 24th, the boys hockey team took on our cross-river rivals, the Miramichi Valley Pulamoo, at the LBA at 7:30. Starting goalie for the Tommies was Colton McKay. The score went back and forth for the first two periods, with Johnathon Russell racking up two goals. However, MV got a advantage over the Tommies by a few goals in the third, but the Tommies fought hard to come back. But they’re just wasn’t enough time left in the game. The boys lost a hard fought battle, with the final score of 6-5 in favor of the Pulamoo.
Last night (November 23rd) your own varsity girls basketball team kicked off their league play with a home opener against Bonar Law Memorial High School.

Their next home game will be December 1st so everyone come on out and support your girls!
The Hoop Classic took place over the weekend and that’s the signal of the beginning of a new season for our boys and girls basketball teams. The girls lost their first two games to MVHS and Saint John High but made the last game of the tournament count beating Leo Hayes 57-50. Although losing the first two games, they played hard and competitively against some tough matchups. Player of the game honor went to Alicia Galley.
