Louis Beaton would never have minded who won the tournament named for him, as long as the kids were playing their best and having fun.
But for the Inverness Ravens to win the 6th Annual Louis Beaton Memorial Atom C tournament for the first time since it was started, you know he would have been beaming.
The Ravens did just that on Sunday at the Dr. Bernie MacLean Cultural and Recreation Centre, but not in the way they would have preferred.
Facing the Cheticamp Trail Riders in the championship game, the Ravens came out like gangbusters with tournament MVP Colbin Hannigan leading the way.
Hannigan scored twice in the first two minutes, Ravens captain Owen Fraser made it 3-0, and at the 12-minute mark Hannigan put the Ravens up 4-0.
Hannigan was aiming to make it 5-0 in the final minutes of the period when his hard shot hit Cheticamp goaltender Mason Doucet in the mask.
