(AJNews) – Congratulations to the Calgary Girouxsalems for winning the 3rd Annual JNF Alberta Cup tournament this past weekend!!
The tournament was held February 22 & 23, hosted by WEM. Four teams – The Fighting Yids, Chai Sticks, Oyveylers & Girouxsalems – battled for the bragging rights and the Calgary team was victorious.
The competition was fierce but between whistles, there was an abundance of camaraderie – both on and off the ice – celebrating community, between the two cities and among friends.
The Alberta Cup tournament trophy was presented to Girouxsalems Team Captain Will Katz by Shane Asbell, sponsor of the commentators booth via Cushman & Wakefield and Daniel Moser, representing media sponsor Alberta Jewish News. The tournament trophy was sponsored in honour of Jack Cohen z”l, by Jasper Auto Parts.
The Stevie Schwartzberg Memorial MVP Award was presented to Scotty Swiston from Team Girouxsalems by Jack Schwartzberg.
“Thank you to everyone who came out to cheer on their friends and loved ones, participated in the community skate, youth shoot out and everything in between,” stated JNF Edmonton Executive Director Jay Cairns.
“And a very special thank you to our generous sponsors. We are already looking forward to year 4!”
