On Friday, November 10th, at 8:00 pm, the Renfrew Junior B Timberwolves hit the ice in a game hosting the Alexandria Glens at the Mateway Activity centre. This was the first game the boys played since the tragic accident that occurred on October 27th, taking the lives of two players and severely injuring two others. This game was be in honour of #65, Brandon Hanniman, an RCI student, and #88, Alex Paquette, a St. Joe’s student. The other boys in the accident, Ben Scheuneman and Jake McGrimmon were not playing.
The game entry cost $8.00 for an adult, and $5 for any student and senior to get in. All proceeds went towards the Scheuneman family, which totaled to around $10,000. Jerseys #65 and #88 were raised in honour of Hanniman and Paquette.
“The boys stood around the painted numbers in their unity circle. The hall was open upstairs for the reception,” said the team. “This is a Celebration of Life for the boys.”
