The time has come and gone for…Hockey day! The BSS Bobcats played the Havergal Gators in a thrilling game on Tuesday, February 7th at North Toronto Arena. The day started with a pep-rally in the morning that introduced the varsity and Junior School hockey teams. In the arena, the crowd was split in two, half were wearing green and yellow and the other half wearing white, burgundy and black. There were posters, BSS thunder sticks, chips, and lots of cheering! The game started with Mary-Ellen from Grade 9 scoring the first goal, giving BSS a 1-0 lead. However, a few minutes later Havergal tied it up to make the score 1-1. This game counted towards the CISAA league. Usually this game doesn’t count; this is the second year of this new decision. Each tie is worth one point for CISAA, while a win is worth two points. At the end of regulation time, the score was 1-1. As a result, the game went into a shootout, as the two teams battled it out to win the long-standing tradition of the Hewitt Cup. In the end, the Gators won the shootout and won the Hewitt Cup for the third year in a row. The game has gone to a shootout all three years. Although the Bobcats did not win, Marlo Campbell, a BSS hockey team member, thinks that this game is, “a great way to bring the school together.” The Bobcats and Gators will face off again in mid February for another game. This game is very important for playoffs, as not all the teams in their division will make it. So… good luck and Go Bobcats, go!
