The perfect season for our Bantam C team this year! After taking the Island and Playoff banner in June, they had to come from behind in the Provincials to overcome a tough (and BIG) West Kootenay’s team to take the Provincial banner. Amazing outcome!!
VELA’s Bantam B team competed in the 2018 Provincial Championship’s in Richmond over the July 5-8 weekend and had an outstanding tournament over the four days. They lost the semifinal game against Kelowna in an absolute nail biter finish, forcing a bronze medal game which they won convincingly. A great finish to a great season.
Bantam C take Gold at the Island play downs
The Novice Selects had an amazing run at the Jack Crosby All Star tournament this past weekend. Finishing first overall in the round robin portion of the tournament with a near perfect 4-0-1 record. Following that up with a convincing win against a very competitive Coquitlam Adanacs team in the semi finals. They fell just short in the gold medal game against the JDF selects team. Very proud of this group of players, coaches and parents!
The annual novice Wind it Up tournament was held this past weekend. Both VELA teams (Red and Blue) made it through the round robin stage and into the semi finals. The Red team advanced to the Gold medal game against JDF 1 and the Blue team played for Bronze against Port Alberni. Both teams worked hard, but came up a bit short in their medal games. Thanks to all the teams that participated and see you next year!
