THE MISSISSAUGA REBELS HOCKEY FAMILY SHARES TRAGIC NEWS
On the evening of Tuesday, March 15, a van carrying nine members of the University of the Southwest Mustangs men's and women's golf teams was returning home from a golf tournament on a two-lane road in Andrews County, roughly 50 kilometres east of New Mexico.
At that time, officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety said a pickup truck travelling in the opposite direction crossed the centre line and collided with the passenger van. Dayton Price (son of U10 Mississauga Rebels Coach) alongside 20-year-old Hayden Underhill, both of whom are students at the university and members of the golf team, are the lone survivors of the crash. Seven members of the university’s golf team were killed in the crash. The pickup was driven by an unidentified 13-year-old boy. Both the driver and the passenger were also killed.
The Price family is eternally grateful to all the first responders. They have also been inspired and uplifted by the generosity and outpouring of support from their friends, friends of friends, the University of Southwest family and the people of West Texas. Dayton was airlifted to a nearby hospital with 3rd degree burns to his body's better half. At the moment he remains is critical but stable condition.
The Mississauga Rebels Hockey Family is also thinking of Dayton and the Price family as he begins his own recovery.
GoFundMe fundraising pages have been set up for both Dayton Price and Hayden Underhill to help their families cover medical expenses related to the crash. If you wish to support the fundraising efforts of Dayton Price, please click on the link below.

U11 REBELS ASSIST IN COMMUNITY FUNDRAISER
U11 Support the Community
As part of the U11 Rebels AAA JOURNEY, the players understand they are part of a community, and giving back to that community and those less fortunate is very important. Coach Luc challenged each player to raise a minimum of $20 for the 2021 Charity 5k Team Run held on Sunday Nov 21.
All player donations were combined and were donated as the U11 Rebels AAA Player Group Donation to Abbey's Annual Birthday Kindness Drive. The Mississauga AAA U11 players raised just under $3000 ($2, 982) AMAZING!
These funds will be used to purchase:
· New toys for children, infants to teenagers, living at the Ernestine Women’s Shelter
· New kitchen ware (dishes, cutlery, small appliances) for newcomer families from Afghanistan, supported by the Afghan Women’s Organization
· Warm socks, hats and mitts for men & women living unhoused in Toronto
The Rebels U11 players should be proud of the positive impact these funds will have on their community.
GO REBELS GO!
