Team grinding it out in floor hockey league

Grinders’ skill level paces them to a 5-0 record in the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s floor hockey league.







Their team name tells a story of gritty play, but it’s the Grinders’ skill level that’s paced them to a 5-0 record in the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s floor hockey league.

A 7-4 victory over the Jets (2-3) was the latest notch on the Grinders’ belt, as the playoffs draw nearer. A date with the second-place Shut Your 5-Hole squad (4-1) will be their next big test, and the 5-Hole team is coming off a 13-4 victory over the Fat Kids Win at Seesaw (0-5) team.

There is a four-way logjam for third place with a host of teams carrying 3-2 records into the sixth week of the season, and all four teams played each other last week. The EDS Trashers (3-2) are coming off a back-and-forth 7-6 victory over the Puck-Offs (3-2), while the Grave Diggers (3-2) put an 11-1 thumping on the Triple Dekes (3-2) squad.

Rounding out the scores, the 4th Liners (2-3) won by a 14-8 count over Here for Beer (0-5).

The playoffs for the fall league start Nov. 22 at the Comox Recreation Centre. And the registration for the winter league that starts in January opens on Nov. 15, as well as leagues in dodgeball, volleyball and indoor soccer.
