Gananoque Minor League Teams Looking to Win Championships

With the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics in full swing, it’s no wonder that everybody across the country has turned their attention to the athletes playing in home soil. Unknown to some, another group of equally talented athletes are also competing for glory and pride here at home.

Unless you have children playing minor league hockey, you probably haven’t bothered to pay attention to it. Sure, you might have heard of some games, even been to one or two, but you haven’t really bothered to keep track of rivalries, standings, and the like. Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Hopefully, that changes as two minor hockey teams from Gananoque make their way to achieving something great. The Rob Nash Excavating Atom Islanders will be playing against the Aylmer Flames at this season’s semifinals match. The Home Hardware Novice Islanders are also doing well this post season, and are looking to make it to the OMHA levels.

With all these games taking place left and right, it’s no wonder that some of the players’ parents are having a tough time with travel and accommodations costs. While they might have signed up for this by letting their children play in the league, let’s help these kids represent the town and focus on the game. They need our support.
