Caption reads:
"THE JOYS OF WINNING

The joys of winning a Midget hockey championship don't need any explanation as the expressions on the faces of V-Town Legion tell the whole story. V-Town captured the Kirkland District Midget Hockey League championship on Wednesday with a 7-3 victory over A.C.T. The win gave the V-Towners the best-of-five series, three games to two and marked the second consecutive year that the V-Town squad has captured the Midget title. Team captain Tom Rosko accepted the Prince George Trophy from KDMHL president Merv Sullivan in the post-game ceremonies at centre ice. "


Richard Goulet is in the middle row centre, with another player's hand in front of his chest. Next to him, to the right, is Derek Lalonde. Behind Richard's head, holding the trophy, is team captain Tom Rosko.
Far left in front row is Gerry Mailloux, then Bill Hrushowy, then unknown, then far right is Bill Jacko.
