Legion Branch No. 17 Peewee B team persevering

Young team gets off to slow start but now showing results of hard work

 

 

 

Minor hockey is always a joy to watch as our kids grow and develop. The Peewee B Legion Branch No. 17 team is certainly no different and has grown immensely over this season.

It was a rough start, like most when you’re tasked with putting together a team of kids who haven’t all played together for years like some teams are lucky enough to have.  They had to learn to grow together and that’s hard for anyone to do.

But these kids have proven themselves capable time and time again.  Maybe not on the scoreboard the way most would have liked throughout the season, but they have shown their drive and determination towards their coaches and their fans alike that they can do anything.

They were the underdogs the whole season, losing all 10 regular season games, and surprised everyone in their Jan. 4-6 Tier B tournament, coming in second after losing to the Nanaimo Clippers.

Team bonding and building continued with some exhibition games two weekends ago proving again that they are sponges hungry for the knowledge and information their coaches provide them as they won both games against Port McNeill.

Further proof was shown this past Sunday at their first playoff game of the season against the Nanaimo Clipper team they lost first place to as they came through with a 6-1 win.

The team took more than their share of skate- and helmet-shaking hits but still kept their heads in the game, playing three full periods of smart, solid hockey.  The fans, parents and coaches are all extremely happy and proud for them on their amazing and well-deserved win.

Come support the Peewee B Legion Branch No. 17 team this weekend. They host Oceanside Saturday at Sports Centre #1 at 12:15 p.m. and Sunday they’re in Campbell River at Rink #1 at 11 a.m.
