Congratulations to the Ancaster Bruins for winning the Novice division championship in the Jerry Smith Memorial Tournament in Glanbrook held December 28-30, 2015.

In the elimination round, a determined Bruins squad won a tight contest over the Glanbrook Blackhawks 3-1 to advance to the final. In a tense rematch, the Bruins and Glanbrook Predators battled hard for 3 tense periods, and in the end, the Bruins emerged with a 4-2 victory to win the tournament with an overall 23 goals for and only 8 goals against.
