Bantam - Week Ending Sept 13

Welcome back to another year of great hockey – and to our weekly roundups.

Each week, we will again bring you a rundown of all games played and achievements of the kids. But coaches, I need your help. If you don’t have roster stickers, please write your roster down with writing I can read so I can give kids the proper credit. And, tell me who your goalie(s) with a little “G” next to the players’ names. One more thing – if there’s a mistake made on our end – spelling, etc. – or if I identify a player by a number and not a name or we need to add a goalie’s name, drop me a line and we can fix any problems. Thanks and have a great season!!!
