LONG GAME TO HIGHLIGHT WORLD GIRLS HOCKEY WEEKEND
Nothing brings out camaraderie in a Canadian quite like hockey.
On Saturday, Oct. 11, that solidarity will stretch from coast to coast to coast with The Long Game, a 15-hour event that will have Atom players in Pownal, P.E.I., Midget players in Hay River, N.W.T., and Senior players in Duncan, B.C., suiting up for the same side.
The day starts at 9:30 a.m. NT in Stephenville, N.L., and when the final horn sounds at 8 p.m. PT in Whitehorse, Yukon, more than 2,000 players on 98 teams will have played 49 games across five divisions. The Long Game is a part of the World Girls Hockey Weekend celebrations.
