Sports Mar 17, 2017 Flamborough Review

The 9th annual Pat DuFour Memorial Hockey tournament last weekend was once again a success, say organizers.

This year’s event raised a little over $10,000, with the cumulative total now topping $100,000.

All money raised through the tournament, held in memory of dedicated hockey volunteer and mentor Pat DuFour, supports Flamborough area youth who otherwise could not afford to play the game. The fund assists families who financially are unable to cover the associated costs.

This year’s tournament ran March 10-12 at both Harry Howell and Carlisle arenas, with 16 teams participating (eight in the Over 35 division, and eight in the Men’s Open category).

The Over 35 Mizener Division final saw Coors take on The Boys. It was a 6-3 win for Coors.

In the Over 35 Attridge Division, the Vipers clinched a win over the White Team.

The Open Dowling Division final was a nailbiter that saw the Barnmuckers defeat the Relaxos in an exciting overtime finish.

In the Open Doyle Division, the Smokin’ Aces defeated Triple Threat, 7-5.

Matt Braggs of the Barnmuckers received the Ron Wilson Memorial MVP Award. The tournament will donate $500 to the ALS Society of Newfoundland and Labrador, which was Braggs’s charity of choice.

The tournament is run each March by Pat DuFour’s children Troy DuFour and Leah Neiser, and her husband Kris, along with countless volunteers many whom Pat mentored on and off the ice.
