Remax Wins the Holiday Tournament0

Posted on December 31st, 2012 in News

The first tournament of the 2012 – 2013 season – the 4-goal Holiday Tournament –  came down to a final with two very Canadian teams. On one side, the somewhat seasoned Pat Powell and his Blazers aggregation, and on the other, Gordon Ross and his Remax group.

Powell, with Kyle Fargey running the ship, has had a very successful run over the last several seasons – including a victory in the Pacific Coast Governor’s Cup and it was thought by many that the trend would continue in the Holiday Tournament. Canelo Silvestre and newcomer Frank Galdon would complete Powell’s group. However, Ross – in town for a few weeks – was very intent on winning as well. To that extent, he enlisted the help of Fargey’s sister, Dayelle, who very quickly brought Joe Henderson and Emma Stachowicz into the fold – a rather formidable 4 – goal organization as it turned out.

Remax started very aggressively and within the first minute of play Dayelle Fargey scored her first of three on the afternoon. The lead wouldn’t last for long however, as Kyle Fargey returned the favor, and it was tied at one. Henderson scored his first of three as well and the first ended with Ross and Co. up by one at 2 -1.

The Fargeys exchanged single goals in the second period and Remax led 3 – 2 at halftime.

The third was pretty much all Remax as Dayelle Fargey and Henderson combined to score three times to take a four goal lead going into the final. Were it not for some very aggressive defensive play by Powell, it could have been worse.

Sylvestre and Kyle Fargey scored once each in the fourth, but it wasn’t enough and Ross and his Remax foursome captured the 2012 Holiday Tournament by a score of 6 – 4.

Stachowicz, based on her tenacity and  very obvious underrated ability, was selected as the Most Valuable Player.
