North Vancouver Storm Midget A3 –
The North Van Midget A3 started the season with two wins, and finished with a tie. In between, a long string of losses, including nine in a row after the first two wins.
Like the A2s, the team played much better after the Christmas break, losing just 3 out of 7, vs 9 of 12 before Christmas.
The team finished Flight 4, 11th out of 13, with a record of 3-12-3, and 22 points, tied with Langley A3 who finished a place higher due to one more win (4-14-0).
The Storm’s improved play has carried through the first round of Tier 3 playoffs, as the reseeded # 7 Storm A3 downed #11 Cloverdale A3, 5-3 to advance to the 4 point Round 2 series (six Flight 4 A2 teams were moved up to Tier 2 for playoffs).
Two lower Tier 3 seeded upsets, by Surrey (13), 3-0 over Abby (4), and by Coquitlam (9), 4-1 over Vancouver (8), have moved the Storm up two places into the five spot for the second round, where they’ll face off against #4 seed Langley A3s in the four point series.
