It was fast-paced action at Meridian Centre on Jan. 4 as Midget AA Falcons hosted Vänersborgs HC in an international Friendly Exhibition Game.

GCMHA’s own Mickey Clair escorted Falcons’ sponsors Derek & Deena Beauchamp of DLB Electric to centre ice for the ceremonial face-off before both countries’ national anthems were observed.

After players from both teams exchanged gifts, the official face-off took place.

What followed was 60 minutes of fast-paced, close-checking, exciting hockey.  While the Falcons represented Canada well, it was the visitors who emerged victorious with a 4-2 win.

After the game, the teams had dinner together and took in exciting OHL action, watching Niagara IceDogs outpace Kitchener Rangers with a thrilling 6-5 overtime win.
