Barbara Barrow Annual Varsity Hockey Tournament
UCC hosted the annual Barbara Barrow Varsity Hockey Tournament on Nov. 22-24 with seven boarders contributing to some excellent hockey entertainment over the weekend. On Friday afternoon UCC played CISAA rival Ridley College from St. Catharines, Ontario. The game was played at a very high tempo and we look forward to seeing Ridley again for a regular-season match in the new year. On Saturday morning UCC played a strong Ulysse Academie team from Quebec. UCC lost the game by a close margin of 2-1, in a match that tested the goaltenders at both ends of the rink. Coulter Taylor did a great job goaltending through a few power-plays, keeping the game close so UCC could pull the goalie and create many scoring chances at the Ulysses net until the final buzzer. In the evening match, UCC played another strong game versus A21 Academy from Windsor, Ontario. This team featured the brother of St. Louis Blues star, Vladimir Tarasenko. In a great display of hockey, following overtime, UCC delivered in a shootout to win the game.
