Girls steal spotlight in Ontario’s Steeltown
HAMILTON, Canada – When your World Girls’ Ice Hockey Weekend features close to 20 games with more than 500 girls participating, you know you must be doing something right. But Saturday’s successful event showcasing many of the top bantam and midget players in Ontario’s third-largest city didn’t come out of nowhere.
In fact, the seeds were sown back in April 2014, when the Stoney Creek Girls Hockey Association (SCGHA) hosted the ESSO Cup in partnership with the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association and Hockey Canada. The ESSO Cup is the girls’ midget national championship, and it helped the SCGHA build new relationships, including with Cable 14.
