BerezkaGas group took under the patronage Yugra children's hockey team from Khanty-Mansiysk city. The team will be provided with the required financial assistance for training and participations in tournaments.
Despite the young age of the boys, many of whom have not even turned 9 years old, they have to meet unchildish requirements with daily workouts on the ice, in the gym, outdoors and in the pool. However, their efforts are not in vain. The team produces good results, including at the country level.
Recently, Sochi hosted Commonwealth Cup hockey tournament among the youth born in 2010, attended by 8 teams from Sochi, Stavropol, Simferopol, Krasnodar, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, and Khanty-Mansiysk cities. Young hockey players were over the moon with the Olympic facilities where the world's greatest athletes had competed.
On its first day of the competition, Yugra demonstrated a high level of playing, beating Kristall from Sakhalin and South Penguins from Simferopol. It also played successfully throughout the entire tournament, losing only to Soyuz team from Stavropol after the penalty shootout. Although the fans in the stands were mostly parents, we believe many of the boys will achieve great results and set a good example for many.
Following the points scored on the last day of the competition Yugra again met in the finals with Soyuz, where in a relentless fight the opposing team won a narrow 3:2 victory. As a result, our boys took a rightful 2nd place with the Top Scorer and the Most Valuable Player titles.
