Bantam A2 Storm – 3rd Place – Flight 5
The New Year has not been good to the North Van Bantam A2s.
After racking up an impressive 9-1-2 record to open the season, including a six game winning streak in December, the Storm have been tripped up a bit in their first four games of 2014.
They’ve lost three and tied one, and have slipped from first place to third in the standings with a record of 9-4-2, and 35 points.
The Vancouver T-Birds A3, on the other hand, have resumed their December surge, with four wins, a loss and tie in 2014.
The tie, a key 2-2 match vs the Storm on Jan 13, ended a seven game winning streak for the T-Birds, who then lost their next outing 4-2 to Seafair, before bouncing back with two wins.
Hollyburn A2 have also moved past the Storm, and now sit in second place two points ahead of the Storm with a 10-4-2 second, 37 points.
The division is an exciting one, as right behind the Storm, are a pack of five teams within a win or two of jumping into the third spot.
The good news for the Storm is that they have two games in hand on the T-Birds, and a friendly schedule, with games against 11th place Langley and 9th place Surrey, before finishing with what could be the banner game, against Hollyburn on Feb 2.
