Nova Scotia glitters with gold, silver, and bronze, at ON goalball tournament

Three Nova Scotia goalball teams earned some serious hardware last weekend at the Ontario Provincial Goalball tournament!

In the rec. division, our Highlanders overcame Kitchener for gold, and the prolific Ship Recs beat Alberta in a close game to secure bronze.
Our Nova Scotia men’s team earned silver in an energetic final bout with team Ontario, in the elite division.
Nova Scotia women competed in the Open division, losing to Quebec in the bronze medal game, with a score of 1-0.
Congratulations to all who competed! Thank you to our coaches, the event organizers, Ontario Blind Sports Association, and volunteers.
