By Josh Howald

After winning a Bluewater Athletic Association championship on home ice last week, the Kincardine District Secondary School girls hockey team kept the good times rolling by going 4-0 at the CWOSSA tournament this week. The Knights defeated St. David’s in overtime yesterday (Tuesday) to win a CWOSSA championship and qualify for the OFSAA provincial championship tournament later this month in Stratford.
