Field Hockey Canada > Toronto Titans win silver at Big Apple Int'l Indoor Championship

RYE FHC, Cougars and University of Maryland took home the honors at the 2012 International Indoor Hockey Championships hosted by Big Apple Hockey (BAHF) and Field Hockey America (FHA) in Feasterville, Pennsylvania on February 18 – 19, 2012. It was also the conclusion of the 1st Annual Junior Premier Indoor League.

With the Toronto Lions looking to capture their fifth straight Men’s Championship, they were denied that opportunity by another Canadian Club, the Toronto Titans in the Quarter Finals. This left their arch rivals RYE FHC very happy as they advance to the Semi Finals against their own local rivals the New York City FHC.

The Finals were set up with the Toronto Titans FHC (Canada) against RYE FHC (USA). Will the Championship remain in Canada or will the Runner up over the past few years RYE FHC keep it in the USA.

We witnessed an exciting final between these two Clubs, with lots of highlight goals on both ends. In the end, the American Club was too much for the Canadians to handle and they suffered a convincing defeat 9 – 4. The Dita Most Promising Player award went to Austin Groeneveld of RYE FHC.

Umpires: Thomas Eilmer (Austria), Constantine Soteriades (USA)
