The Canadian Navy ship HMCS Toronto (333), arrived in Bermuda and connected with the Bermuda Ball Hockey League.
The reason for the Navyís trip was the Commanding Officer Cdr Steven Archerís last voyage on duty with the Toronto so they wanted to head someplace warm and he picked Bermuda.
The local Ball Hockey players invited the Navy to a Mini Ball Hockey Tournament.
The Navy displayed a spirited first game but came up slightly short on a 1-0 loss to Bermuda.
The second game with the Mixed Team and Bermuda drew a 1-1 tie with a win by Bermuda in a Shootout overtime win.
The third game had the Mixed team defeated the Navy 5-3.
To top the tournament off, all the players were split between 2 teams so that we could build more comradery between Navy and local players.
The Bermuda Ball Hockey League would like to thank Commanding Officer Archer for organizing the ship to come to Bermuda and Petty Officer Chris Pudsey to play Hockey with our Bermuda guys.
