North Van Bantam Storm Update – moving along nicely

in Other News, regular season

NVMHA StormBantam Storm A1 – exceptional play in Flight 2

It hasn’t taken the Storm A1 long to establish themselves as one of the elite teams in Flight 2.

The team is undefeated after six games, posting an impressive 4-0-2 record in that span. That ties them with Semiahmoo (4-0-2) for second in the flight. The team has also done well to collect a sportmanship point (Spt) in every game this season.

The defence and goaltending of the Storm A1 has been incredible. The team has allowed just seven goals in six games, tieing them with Port Moody (6-0-0) for fewest goals against.

The Storm A1 started strong with two 4-1 wins and followed that up with a 3-0 shutout against Burnaby (1-3-0).

After back-to-back ties against BWC (1-2-1) and Semiahmoo (4-0-2), the Storm A1 got back in the win column with yet another 4-1 game, this time against Langley (1-3-1).

The next game for the Storm A1 is on Sunday, Nov. 29th when the team visits Coquitlam (2-1-0)

Bantam Storm A2 – even results through four games

The Storm A2 have been a .500 team so far in Flight 3. They sit smack dab in the middle of the flight, in the 5th spot of ten teams.

They haven’t been involved in any blowouts, as both of their wins and one of their losses were by two goals, with the other loss being by three against a strong opponent in Seafair (4-0-1).

The Storm A2 have played both the top and bottom teams in Flight 3, and had close games against them all, so it’s tough to say at this point where the team goes from here.

The next contest will be tough for the Storm A2, as they visit North Delta (6-0-1) on Monday, Nov. 30th.

Here’s a look at the first four games for the Storm A2:

Date Flight 3 GF GA W L T Spt PIM
11/10/2015 Seafair A2-T2 2 5 L 1 14
11/17/2015 Coquitlam A2-T2 7 5 W 1 2
11/23/2015 Chilliwack A2-T2 2 4 L 1 14
11/27/2015 New West A1-T2 4 2 W 1 8
 A2 Totals: 15 16 2 2 0 4 38


Bantam Storm A3 – close games in Flight 6

The Storm A3 have been caught on the wrong side of a number of close games this season. The team has a record of 1-3-1 in Flight 6, good for 6th out of nine teams.

Don’t let the record fool you, as the Storm A3 were right in the thick of things in two of those three losses.

The team’s sole win came in the first game, a 4-2 victory over a solid Semiahmoo team (3-1-0). The team came up just short in the next contest, a 4-3 loss to South Delta (2-0-2). Following that was a tie against Ridge Meadows (1-1-2).

After shaking off a 5-1 loss against Vancouver (2-1-1), the team put up a solid effort against top-seed Port Moody (3-0-2) but came up just short once again in a 3-2 game.

The Storm A3 haven’t had any games yet against teams below them in the standings, so expect the Storm A3 to shoot up a bit in the Flight 6 standings shortly.

The Storm A3 will have a chance to do just that when they take on winless West Van (0-2-1) on Sunday.

Here’s the Bantam Storm A3 regular season record thus far:

Date Flight 6 GF GA W L T Spt PIM
11/11/2015 Semiahmoo A3-T3 4 2 W 0 21
11/15/2015 South Delta A2-T2 3 4 L 1 8
11/18/2015 Ridge Meadows A4-T4 2 2 T 1 8
11/21/2015 Vancouver A2-T3 1 5 L 1 4
11/25/2015 Port Moody A2-T3 2 3 L 0 21
 A3 Totals: 12 16 1 3 1 3 62


Bantam Storm A4

Not much to report here, as the Storm A4 have only played one game since the last update, for a total of two in the regular season.

After opening with a loss against undefeated Abbotsford (6-0-0) the team took on Cloverdale (1-2-0). The Storm A4 were able to find the back of the net three times, but found themselves on the wrong side of a 7-3 decision.

The team will have a crack at their first win on Sunday when they play North Delta (1-4-0).

A look at the two Storm A4 games played:

Date League GF GA W L T Spt PIM
11/15/2015 Abbotsford A3-T3 1 8 L 1 8
11/21/2015 Cloverdale A3-T3 3 7 L 1 10
