NR West Masonry Flames, What A Season!!!!

2012-13 Midget A West Masonry Flames Team 1
Midget A West Masonry Flames
2013 HPEI
Provincial Champions

On behalf of Greg and I, we would like to thank our players for being the best that they can be. They proved that staying positive, focussed, working as a team and shear determination can bring you to your goal. You have worked extremely hard, over coming many hurdles along our journey to the Provincials and then becoming the very deserving Provincial champions.

We believe each one of you on the ice, on the bench and in our dressing room what ever your roll, all played a huge part in making our team succeed. Never did you get down, never did you quit and never did any of you stop playing and being part of our team on and off the ice.

We believed in you all from the onset, we new we had the horses to run the race and no matter the goal in mind nothing was burning out our flame.

When you stop and reflect on what you/we as a team did this past year: finishing 2nd in our division, winning in the Pownal tournament that involved 24 teams, half of which being from off island and then finishing up this weekend with a never quit overtime victory in the crossovers against Montague, just to reach the finals to meet a team that had one lose all year and find that inner strength and determination to win was an unbelievable feeling for each one of us and one I will remember for some time to come.

To Braden, Shane, Morgan and Cameron we wish you well in your hockey and life adventures down the road. To the rest of the team that are left to come back again for another year of playing Midget hockey, all the best next season.

Together you have made us all very, very proud!!!!

To the parents of our team, thank you for giving Greg and I the opportunity to coach your young men. They came to the rink ready to play for their team and each other. They conducted themselves very professional on and off the ice. To win this season was awesome, however, the fact that we had such a great group of kids and that we as much as them learned from each other, life skills.

To all keep burning the flame. Hard work does pay off.

Congratulations to all of you, it has been our honour and pleasure to be part of such a great group of players, parents and families!!!

February 25, 2013

Congradulations to the West Masonry North River Midget Flames. In a tournament that involved 24 midget teams and 6 divisions, including 11 teams from the mainland. The flames regrouped after an initial game 1 loss to Montague (3 - 2) to rebound and post 5 straight wins. The flames defeated Hampton (8 - 0) and Cole Harbour (7 - 3) in the qualfying round, then meet the Truro Blackcats in the quarter finals and won by a 4 - 2 score. In this game we lost a key player, Ben Conklin, to a concussion.

On Sunday we played a team from Lancaster who took the lead early 1 - 0, then the Flames found their legs and went on to win this semi-final round 6 - 2. The stage was then set for the Finals,  Flames vs. Sherwood Falcons who have gone 5 - 0 in previous games.

In the final game the Flames came out hard and with determination in their hearts and eyes defeated the Falcons 4 - 1, to win the Tournament.

Special thanks to AP Blake Thomsen coming up and helping us out for our 2 Sunday games. Our team played as a team worked hard and deserved this victory and this tournament. They were not taking no for an answer.

North River West Masonry Flames, WELL DONE!!!

Couple Of Items For This Week!!

We will be having a Ball Hockey game at the APM tonight (Wednesday) from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Should be fun!!


Remember when we use to have those fun 6 am practices when you were younger,  well they are back for this week only!! With the way our schedule was drawn up with no games and as a result of the Sweetheart Tournament, ice time is at a premium.

if you are able to get to the APM Friday for 6 am and if you should need a ride home after practice, we will make sure they you get a ride home.

Thanks to you all for making this practice possible. We realize that the time is not favourable to everyone but with being off the ice for what would be the best part of 2 weeks this Sunday and having 3 games back to back starting Sunday with Evangeline we felt we needed to do this.

Regarding tonight, ball hockey game at the APM gym we are charging $5.00 and should there be any money left over it will be turned over to Ron Kelly our Treasurer for further team stuff.

Thanks again,

Also, should you be unable to attend please advise,

We had a great turn out this morning at the CBC. Our team raised $245.00 and provided 13 turkeys to the drive. Players all came wearing their white hockey sweaters to make the donation. Scott Perry and Cameron Matheson spoke on behalf of our team. Players and parents should be very proud of your team, you have just ensured that at least 13 families on PEI will have a turkey dinner to enjoy this Christmas.

Again thanks to all, West Masonry North River Midget A Flames you are making a difference in your community on and off the ice.

December 3, 2012

Just a reminder as per earlier discussions.

We are hoping that our team, can make a donation to the CBC Turkey Drive later this month. Again this is not compulsory, just one avenue for our kids to participate in giving to others during this Christmas season. As you are aware every little bit helps, anything from loose change on up. We are all certainly aware that there is a real need, especially at this time of the year.

Players/Parents can forward (if they wish) any amount they would like to either Greg, Ronota or myself. At the end of the day hopefully we, as a team, will have helped someone in our island community to have a merrier Christmas season.

Thanks to all for considering this initiative.

Team Sweaters / Full Ice Practice Thursday

A couple of items regarding our team sweaters. As previously discussed in order to keep our uniforms in good condition, we are requesting all players to hang your Jerseys (Home and Away) up on hangers and not putting them in your kit bag. (I believe for the most part you have done this)

The other item is only A or C are allowed on the sweaters. Please, no player name or other sponsors lettering.  

Regarding our Captain and Assistant captains nominations, we will be requesting players input on Thursday at our practice in Crapaud.

Players are reminded that this will be ice time strictly for our team only. (Team # 2 has a regular season game)
