BWC Bantam A1- In the hunt – #1 in their sights
December 8, 2018
The Burnaby Winter Club Bantam A1 are on a hot streak, and if they can keep it up, could be the #1 team in their Flight at the Christmas break.
Although the team stumbled a bit out of the gate, losing three straight, two of those losses were by a single goal – including the first to #2 Abbotsford, and another to #1 Seattle A2 – which was a bounce back game after suffering a 4-1 loss the night before.
Since then the Bruins have put up five straight wins. And they’ve added a sportsmanship point in all but one game.
The team is led by a high flying offence – the team is currently first in goals scored in the division, by a significant margin, with 44 GF. NSWC A2 next at 36 GF, both after 8 games played, the next two, #1 Seattle and #2 Abbotsford have posted 30 GF.
The Bruins are now in fourth place in the 11 team division at 5-3-0-7, and 17 points, just one back of third place West Vancouver A1, and two back of Seattle Junior A2 and Abbotsford A2.
The team will wrap up 2018 with four more games in December, including two big games vs #3 West Van and one vs #2 Abbotsford. If they can maintain their current streak, the team very well could be gunning for first place Seattle A2 going into the New Year.
Seattle have six games left to play before the break, starting with three games this weekend vs NSWC Saturday, and a pair of games Sunday, vs Chilliwack at 1:00 PM and North Van at 7:00 PM.
