Bantam Blue - Finalists in Rochester Fall Classic
Bantam Blue team headed down to Rochester this past weekend to play in the Rochester Fall Classic.

The team came off a Friday night win 2-1 against a tough Valley Forge Colonials team. They kept the momentum going Saturday with a 2-2 tie in the morning, then playing a back and forth evening game coming away with a 3-2 win.

The team needed to adapt to a number of interesting Hockey USA rules which we are not used to seeing in Canada. Fighting through this adversity, the team came away undefeated in the round robin to advance to the finals against the Lysander Lightning of NY.

Lysander capitalized early with 2 powerplay goals. Coach Agost would not allow this to take away from our performance and rallied the boys to keep digging and not let that decide our fate. It was back and forth, but in the end the Lysander Lightning came away with a 3-2 victory.

Congratulations to Coach Lourenco and his staff and the hard working players on another great tournament weekend, and another finalist finish.
