BATTLE OF THE TRADES - We are the Champions!

Local 8 is very proud to let you know that the Local 8 White Team was the big winner in the 2nd Annual SBTA "Battle of the Trades" Hockey Tournament after losing only one game out of seven in the two-day event. And just to make the win even sweeter, the OE 955 team they beat by 7-5 in the final game was the only team to defeat them in the regular rounds.

We'd like to thank all the players on both teams, all the people who came out to watch and cheer our teams on and a special thanks to the SBTA and affiliates for a great tournament.. More photos will be posted shortly.
