New Brunswick and Yukon Show True Meaning of Sportsmanship on Last Day of Games

Yukon 0 – New Brunswick 10

Dartmouth, N.S. – New Brunswick may have won its last matchup at the Canada Winter Games by a wide margin, with a 10-0 shutout over the Yukon in relegation action, but it wasn’t so much about the score on the board as it was about the positive attitudes of players on both squads Saturday inside the Sportsplex.

The teams fought hard on the ice, but they also had a lot of fun doing it, with the New Brunswick players encouraging the less experienced Yukon players and raising their sticks in respect and admiration of the determined little squad from up north at the end of the game. The teams also posed for photos and mugged for the camera together at the end of the game, in a true display of sportsmanship that won’t soon be forgotten.

Sam Bujold (Rothesay, N.B.), Anissa Gamble (Fredericton, N.B.) and Connor Garagan (Fredericton, N.B.) all contributed a couple of markers each, while Heather Braun (Plaster Rock, N.B.), Schyler Campbell (Rexton, N.B.), Leanne Gallant (Newbridge, N.B.) and Josée Léger (Cap Pelé, N.B.) had singles  for New Brunswick.
