At the ZSC Christmas party Buddy and Joanne Allen’s eleven year old twin grand daughter Alyssa challenged me to a one on one hockey game.
A world class shuffleboard player and someone who played hockey for some twenty some years was being challenged by this energetic eleven year old girl hockey player.
It started out with the old guy getting the lead but after about one hour later the young gals strategy kicked in and she tied the game at four a piece .
Overtime proved nothing so we went to a shootout first one to five goals and Alyssa won the game five to four.
We had quite an audience with the grandparents, parents, sisters, and Geraldine all rooting for Alyssa, felt like I was at a shuffleboard tournament.
Scott and Stephane Allen along with grandparents Buddy and Joanne have three lovely granddaughters to be proud of.
Alyssa is a determined young lady who will become great at whatever she decides to do because she has modelled herself to be like the greatest hockey player in the world Sydney Crosby.
Thank you Alyssa for a great day. Henry Strong. 2017 01 01. Click once on each pic.)
