LANTZ: A hockey player from Lantz was a key part in her Atlantic Female Training Institue (AFTI) team from Andrews Hockey School capturing the championship at the Women’s Hockey Tournament in Boston on June 7-9.

Kiara Keddy was one of the players on the squad representing the Maritime region at the tournament south of the border.

In the round-robin portion of the tournament, Keddy and her AFTI teammates drew even with Connecticut Northern Lights 3-3; tied the Leprechauns 04 1-1; blanked Vermont 2-0; and cruised by Wade Warriors 04 in the semi-final 5-1.

That setup a rematch with the Northern Lights this time with the championship on the line.

Keddy picked up two assists in the final as AFTI won the championship 2-1.

Goalie Schuyler Sanford of Elmsdale and Olivia Goodyear from Milford were also on the winners.

Andrews Hockey School’s AFTI teams also won the Women’s 2005 and 2006 division championships over competition from the Boston region.
