North Van Midget Storm – ready to roll

in Other News, Placement Round

NVMHA Storm

All three North Van Storm Midget teams are starting regular season play this week, and as expected, will be competing in the same Flights as last year.

 

Midget Storm A1 – Flight 1

After  a lackluster 1W-3L-2T start, the Storm Midget A1 bounced back in their final two placement games. First the Storm downed winless Hollyburn (0-5-3), though by a slim 3-2 margin, on October 30th. Then, two nights later, the team blanked top ranked Surrey (5-2-1) 2-0, handing them just their second loss in placements. Factor in the 2-2 tie against top-seeded NSWC A1 (6-1-1) and the Storm A1s look like they’ll be very competitive against the top teams in Flight 1.

The team finished the placement round with a 3-3-2 record, sixth out of ten teams in the flight.
