Friday afternoon, the Alexandra Hockey League came to a thrilling conclusion with the return of the annual Stanley Pot Championship game.  

This season, the AHL featured five feisty squads from Grades 4 to 8 competing throughout the 32-game season.    

Friday’s Stanley Pot Championship saw the Flaming Frogs take on the Scorpions in a winner-take-all hockey hootenanny.

There was one question on everyone’s minds throughout the week: Would the Frogs waddle away as web-toed winners, or could the Scorpions sting their way to supremacy?   

The Alexandra Choir started things off with a rousing rendition of O Canada, and were also joined by our Grade 2 class, led by Mrs. Vail, who signed the anthem.   

Once the ball dropped, our Eagles were witness to an amicable-yet-adversarial ball hockey battle between amphibians and arthropods.

Joining the students were parents, community members, and Alexandra alumni, while the Owen Sound Attack’s Cubby and our own Emilee the Eagle looked on in approval.   

The Scorpions stung early and often, and headed into intermission with a two goal lead. With their speckled backs against the wall, the issue became: The Frogs could ribbit, but could they rally?  

After a fast and furious second half of action, the long-awaited results were in, and the Scorpions held on to eke out a 6-4 victory.

Top scorer was Eli “The Electric Eel” Carder, who slithered his way to 4 goals on the day. Boltin’ Colton McKechanie, captain of the Flaming Frogs, replied with a hat trick of his own while the crowd croaked in support, making the day a lucrative one for local haberdashers.   

Joining them on the scoreboard were Scorpions team captain Chace “The Monster” Minard, who lit the lamp with a duo of doozies, and Bobby “The 36 Chambers of Shaolin” Chambers who hacked home a howitzer of his own for the Frogs.  

MVP of the game was Scorpion goalie Musa “The Wall” Fazal, who stopped several blistering shots despite being one of the youngest competitors. 

While the Scorpions were able to finish with a leg (or eight) up on their competition, both teams must be congratulated for displaying the trademark sportsmanship, inclusion, and enthusiasm that makes “The Home of the Eagles” a hockey hotbed.   

The AHL would like to thank the Alexandra community for the support.

See you in 2024!
