The host team captured the 2023 Altona Maroons U11 hockey tournament this past weekend at Sunflower Gardens.
The Altona Maroons silver team, who captured the Winnipeg Jets Challenge Cup to kick off the New Year, tied their opener and then won four in a row to capture gold.
The Maroons defeated the St. Boniface Seals 15-1 after skating to a 5-5 tie with Rat River earlier on day one of the tourney.
Altona then shutout the Seals 15-0 in the quarterfinals; blanked Rat River 5-0 in the semifinals and downed St. Adolphe 7-1 in the championship game on Sunday.
