Two things seem to be inevitable this hockey season: the NHL lockout will go on, and so will BWC Peewee A1’s winning streak. The Bruins have dispatched all of their opponents in Decmeber, notching 5 wins in the last two weeks. That extends their winning streak to 16 games, stretching back to the placement round.
Along the way, they have outscored their opponents by a ridiculous 104-15 margin. They sit atop the Flight 1 regular season standings with 26 points and a perfect 9-0 record.
The A2 Bruins came into December with a comfortable 2W-0L-1T record. They quickly improved upon it with a 3-2 win over NSWC and 4-3 win over Cloverdale.
The team then hit a bit of a snag, putting up back to back losses. They fell 4-2 to Seattle Junior Peewee A1 and were surprised on home ice by Hollyburn, with the Huskies winning 2-1 on December 10th. Luckily, BWC was able to right the ship, coasting to a 6-0 drubbing of Semiahmoo two nights later.
The boys now sit in 2nd place within the Flight 2 standings at 5W-2L-1T.
It has been a shaky month for the A3 squad, ending up on opposite sides of blowout games. It was BWC piling up the goals against Sno-Kings Peewee A1 on December 1st by a score of 11-1. Soon afterwards, they had the tables turned on them by North Vancouver Peewee A1, who blasted BWC 13-4.
Outside those two games, the A3 team managed a 4-4 tie against Abbotsford A2 before falling 6-3 to Vancouver Peewee A1. The Bruins are now squeezed into the middle of the Flight 3 standings with Langley and Chilliwack, with each team holding approximately .500 records.
The A4 Bruins struggled to find their game early in December, opening the month with back to back losses to Sunshine Coast and Ridge Meadows, respectively.
Since then, they have turned things around nicely, building a three game winning streak over a series of close games. The Bruins beat Port Coquitlam A2 6-4, edged Langley A4 5-4 and clipped Ridge Meadows A3 4-3. The streak also vaulted the Bruins from the basement to the middle of the standings.
