Riverside Minor Hockey president Anne Marie Schofield was busy but happy on the first day of the associations' Christmas tournament. "We're back full force. On multiple levels it was great."
Schofield says the kitchen is back after not being available through pandemic restriction a year ago. Also returning is the presence of a European team. The Frederickshaven White Eagles from Denmark arrived in Windsor Monday with sticks and some of their gear missing.
"In typical Riverside hockey fashion we procured and gathered multiple sticks and even the (Windsor) Spitfires came to the rescue as well."
Schofield says the Spits donated a bunch of used sticks and presented them to the team prior to their exhibition game against Riverside's U16 team. The White Eagles open round robin play in the U18 division against Riverside Wednesday at 12:45 in the WFCU's AM800 rink.
