Comox Centre Mall Bantam Chiefs open new season

Locals in action this weekend with two games at Comox Valley Sports Centre

The Comox Centre Mall Bantam Chiefs hockey team began regular season play this past weekend with a Halloween road trip to the North Island.

After a long, rainy drive on Saturday, the team was somewhat sluggish and dropped the exhibition game against Triport 5-2 in Port Alice. After a good meal and restful sleep in Port Hardy, the team bounced back with a 6-2 win over the same Triport squad in the league game, securing two points for Division 2 standings.

Evan Black and Matt Teasdale both scored twice in the win, with Brent Arnet and Lochlan Willis chipping in with singles. Solid team play and timely saves from goaltender Keegan Rivett secured the win and a happier (but still rainy) drive home.

With few returning players from last year’s Bantam A team, this year’s team looks forward to competing for top spot in Division 2 over the course of the season and are putting in the hard work and practice to further develop their skills while having fun along the way.

Next league games are Saturday, Nov. 7 at 4:45 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 8 at 3:15 p.m., both at Sports Centre #1.

The Chiefs are also hosting an eight-team tournament Nov. 13-15 at the Sports Centre with scheduled games on Friday the 13th at 2:30 p.m. and Saturday the 14th at 11 a.m. and 5:45 p.m.  For some entertaining hockey, come out and watch the Bantam A Chiefs.

 

The team thanks their sponsor Comox Centre Mall in addition to all of the local individuals and businesses that have supported them with their fundraising activities this season.  These generous contributions allow the team to enter tournaments and access additional ice time and training to support continued development of our players.
