BRATTLEBORO >> Brattleboro's U14 girls ice hockey team placed third in the 24th annual Green Mountain Tournament over the weekend at Memorial Park.
During a 5-0 victory over Wakefield South, Jennelle Tattersall had a hat trick to lead the host Hawks. Margaret Yost and Edith Clay also lit the lamp, while netminders Eliya Petrie and Jade Bruneau teamed up for the shutout.
There were 14 teams entered and 20 games played during the tourney that went from Jan. 8-10 at Nelson Withington arena. The Ridgefield Lady Lions of Connecticut won the U14 championship and the Greenwich Panthers were crowned in the U12 tourney.
The Green Mountain Tournament is the Brattleboro Hockey Association's biggest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds from the event help keep the learn to skate program free to boys and girls ages 3-7 from the Brattleboro area. Funds from the tournament also contribute to the BHA's financial aid that defrays player fees for travel team BHA skaters from the Mites to Bantam level, in addition to making reduced cost equipment available for younger and new to the game players.
