Bantam A hicket team impresses coach

Sooke team wins tournament in Campbell River over the holidays

Bantam A won the Christmas tournament in Comox Valley taking the Gold against Campbell River in the final game 8-1.

“The turkey wore off,” said Coach Kelly Hott.

It was a round robin tournament with the winner going to the finals. Bantam A lost their first game to Campbell River 4-2 and this proved to be their only loss. After this first game, the Bantam’s played games against Cowichan T2, Kerry Park T3, Tri-Port T3 in semi-final and finally Campbell River again for the Gold.

The other teams participating in the tournament other than those listed were Comox T2, Seattle and Nanaimo T3.  In their third game against Kerry Park, Bantam A won 6-1.  By the time the boys won the Tri-port Eagles 6-1, “they woke up,” said Hott.

Next Campbell River played against Seattle and they lost in a shoot out. It was then time for Campbell River to play against Bantam A for the gold. “The boys played their best game of the year, winning 4-1,” said Hott who has been coaching most of the second year players since they were four-years old.

The team had zero try outs.

“For a team that wasn’t skill wise they really put it together well. It’s been a lot of fun” said Hott.

This game was an example of how the boys gave it their all and it was a real team effort Hott tells me. “The skill level has closed considerably. This is the stage I’ve been looking forward to where they play like young men,” he said.

The next game will take place on January 14th at SEAPARC arena in Sooke at 3 p.m.

 

Bantam C

A win on Saturday against the Peninsula “C2” team puts Sooke ahead in the season with a record of 6 – 0.  The first period saw Chadwick Mason score off a heads up pass from Bradley Angus.  Solid effort continued in the second and third periods, and included an even strength and power play goals by the captain, Dryden Alexander, on nicing passing from Chad Zigay on defense to winger Sheldon Kelly.

As the Bantam “C” Boys season record proves, the boys are using all their players well, relying on passing back to the points to set up plays and cycling the puck well.  Taylor Haisall had another confident game in the net and is almost making it look easy.

The boys are looking forward to getting Jamie Crevier back in the line up soon.
