Martineau Masonry, a novice major team representing the Soo Pee Wee Hockey League, opened a lot of eyes at a weekend tournament in London.

Coached by former Ontario Hockey League and European pro defenseman Cole Jarrett, Martineau Masonry finished the round-robin portion of the event with a perfect 4-0 record to emerge as the no. 1 seed among the 12 novice major teams.

The Soo squad posted victories over the North York Rangers, West London Hawks, Kitchener Jr. Rangers and Hamilton Huskies by respective scores of 7-2, 6-4, 4-2 and 6-1 to make it into the championship round.

In the championship set, Martineau Masonry lost to the powerhouse Kitchener Jr. Rangers by a 3-2 score.

Of note, Martineau Masonry of the Soo was the only team to defeat Kitchener throughout the tournament.

What you think about “Soo kids shine in London”

  1. Man this group of Northern Ontario kids taught us a good less on how to work hard for a win!!!

    While we are flattered that the article refers to our Kitchener Ranger team as a powerhouse it should be noted that the Martineau Masonry team was by far the toughest opponent we have faced all year. The semi final game easily could have gone either way. Especially since they out hustled, out worked and out played us the day before. I’d be lying if I said we weren’t nervous going into the semi’s to face them again. Losses although a tough pill to swallow, always make teams stronger. Keep up the hard work Martineau Masonry!!! I feel sorry for any team that is in your path now!

    All the Best this season,
    Kitchener Jr. Rangers Novice White
