Ringer leads Rednecks to victory
There was just no stopping Danny Post on Sunday in the championship game of the 40+ division of the Grand Pub & Grill Rednecks rec hockey tournament at the Nicola Valley Memorial Arena. The just-turned-40-year-old scored four goals to lead the host team to a 6-3 win over the NVIT Eagles in the title tilt. Third went to Williams Lake and fourth to the Douglas Lake Buckaroos.
In the 50+ A division, it was no contest in the final game as the Cavalieres from Kamloops defeated Merritt’s Coldwater Hotel Devils 5-1. The Radicals from Kamloops finished third and the 100 Mile All-Stars fourth.
The 50+ B division was the most closely contested of the weekend as a pair of Kamloops’ teams — Cactus Jacks and the Plaza Hotel — wound up with five points apiece, and tied each other 1-1 in their head-to-head battle. A count-back of total goals-against gave Cactus Jacks the title. The Plaza Hotel finished second, the Merritt Mustangs third and the Inlander Pub from Kamloops fourth.
