Pictured are (l-r) Lars Dowker, Lucas Taniguti (goalie), #15 Chays York, and Ethan Smith (with puck). The game was held Saturday in the Sportsplex – part of a five-team tournament. “It was a tough weekend for us and we lost three out of four games,” said coach Barb Coates. “We were playing teams that were way stronger but we battled in the last game of the tourney and won the game with only nine seconds left in the game. The kids were tired but didn’t give up.”
