Cheers from the Back of the Cafeteria

I was living in North Your at the time and attending George Vanier School.

There were approximately 200 people that were moved to the cafeteria to watch
the final game.

The challenging part was that they didn’t have big screen TV’s like they do
today. So sitting in the back of the cafeteria it was tough to see the game.
In fact, I really didn’t see the goal until the replays later in the evening.

After years of seeing the replay over and over, that goal has become attached
to the visual memory.
