Ottawa's 10th Annual Sledge Hockey Tournament,

April 4th - 6th, 2014

Our Team in Action!

After four hard-fought wins in two days in Ottawa's 10th Annual Sledge Hockey Tournament, the RoughRiders were pitted against the Stittsville Falcons, the "house team" and tournament favorite, in the Gold Medal game on Sunday - April 6th. If ever a game could be scripted to showcase the sport of sled hockey, this was it!  Up 1-0 and then 2-1, with the score tied 2-2 and one minute remaining in regulation the RoughRiders and their supporters watched a Stittsville breakaway turned into a miraculous save by goalie Anthony Zappia.  A three-on-three Sudden Death Overtime ensued and RoughRiders' Captain Bryan Genovese, Chris Meigel and Kristy Vaughn faced off against the Falcons' best.  In less than 90 seconds, following unbelievable passes from Bryan and Kristy, Chris Meigel scored the winning goal in a heart-stopping and very emotional 3-2 win!!!
