This weekend the U13 LL team had the privilege of playing in the Lefroy Fall Faceoff Tournament. The team came together to play some of the best defensive hockey that the team has played as a group ever.
They faced some stiff competition through the weekend but didn't let anything phase them.
As a team they managed to keep the other teams guessing and scratching their heads as how to get the puck through the defensive wall and the goaltender who seemed to be almost standing on his head to keep the puck out of their net.
Regardless of the score at the end of the day this team learned what it takes to compete and to have a pile of fun.
Coach Jon said " this team has overcome multiple challenges to this point this season but has yet to stop smiling. Every shift each player is developing, competing, and leaving everything they have on the ice.
The greatest success as a coach is to see the smiles after each little battle that they win and at the end of the game.
This group is truly special and is a pleasure to watch and be a part of.
Keep an eye out for us at the end of the season when we hit playoffs.....no one will believe that we are the same team!"
Special recognition to Lukas Bedard, Aurora Irish, Isaac Dupuis-Cundy for continuously being leaders on the ice and battling each and every shift and truly leaving every little bit of sweat they have on the ice.
