Bantam "C" Boys win the South Division Island League Championship banner for 2011-2012 season.

Bantam “C” Boys

Congratulations to the WES Ltd. Sooke Bantam “C” Boys for winning the South Island League (Division 1) Championship banner for the 2011-2012 season.

The bantam boys played their last league game Saturday at Westhills Arena against the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies C3 team and wrapped up a perfect season with another win.

Dominic Lacroix started the scoring in the first period assisted by Alex Scott.  Bradley Angus got the second goal in the period assisted by Chadwick Mason. The Thunderbirds tallied one more in the third period as Chad Zigay passed to Ayden Ostropolski who made a perfect spinning backhand pass to Jared Purdy, who one-timed it past the Grizzly netminder.

An amazing season effort from the whole team.  The boys played each game with unrivalled determination, showing solid skating and passing skills, while displaying sportsmanship and a true love of the game. For the proud parents and families, who spent many hours getting to and from the rink, it was a very exciting and gratifying season. Good work boys!

Novice 3

Over the last two weeks your Sooke Novice 3 Thunderbirds have lost twice and won twice.

The two losses came against the Juan de Fuca 4B team who is considered by many to be the top team in the Novice 4 tier this year.  The boys played well in the second game but still came up considerably short in the end.

However, once again when the team plays at its own tier level they continue to win in convincing fashion.

Out scoring their opponents on the road 9-3 and 9-1 respectively against Peninsula and Racquet Club.

Alex Kozinka was between the pipes for three of the four games and made some very solid saves particularly in the Racquet Club Game.  Hat tricks were recorded by Grant Gilbertson, Jack Price, Tait Bishop and Kobe Knowles.  Additional goals were netted by Connor Keys, Connor North and Owen Phipps.

As the year is winding down the team continues to improve, exhibiting sound defensive play, passing and sportsman like conduct.
