HPJH Challenge Cup Champions
On Wednesday, after a historic final game, the Bradola Oilers won the Challenge Cup. It was an intense, hard fought win against a Leaf’s team that gave everything they had. This is the first Championship for Mr. Tortola and Mrs. Bradbury. When interviewed after the game Tortola described this team as “gritty and physical, with a smooth ability to finish off plays.” Mrs Bradbury described them as a “team of destiny”.

While disappointed with the loss, Mr. Jarrettttt played great in net and said “you win some and you lose some, but it is how you played the game that is important.” Mr Seely was visibly upset after the loss, but said “we are going to train hard in the off-season and we will be back next year, another year older and a little wiser, I think that will be the difference next time.”

Thanks to everyone who participated in the league, look out for information about the Staff vs Students All-Star game that will be coming up soon.
