Bantam Wildcats finish Hope hockey tournament with perfect record

The mixed team finished with 3 wins, 0 losses, 1 tie

It’s been a good season for Hope’s Bantam hockey team, and the season’s not over yet.

The 18-player team, which is a mix of girls and boys, has really put their heart into the game this season, said head coach, Kevin Duncan. “We’ve got a really good team this year, they played well the entire season.”

And they really shone most recently in the Hope Wildcats Bantam Hockey Tournament, where they finished with a perfect record of three wins and zero losses, but were unable to snag the top spot due to a penalty point they received during a game.

Overall, they’re at 30 wins, seven losses, and three ties for the entire season, which will finish next month after another three-day tournament in Salmon Arm.

“We’re in the playoffs right now,” Duncan explained, “but we were the only undefeated team in the Hope tournament.”

Held Jan. 18 to 20 at the Hope arena, the tournament consisted of eight teams from across the Lower Mainland and into the interior. And while they didn’t win the tournament, they were placed in the top-tier division of the playoffs based on their spectacular season record, Duncan said.

The Hope Bantam Wildcats invites the community to check out their home games at the Hope arena every Wednesday night at 7:15 p.m.
