End of Season Review
Our resident web article writer has been absent for the past couple of weeks so here is our delayed end of season roundup!
The big news is that we lost out in the Ice Hockey Summer Classic Final to the Grimsby Stormers at Ice Sheffield. Despite going in front twice early in the game, the first period ended 7-2 to Grimsby and we just weren’t able to pull it back, the final score 13-6 to the Stormers.
Buccs to Face Stormers in Final After Semi-final Thrillers
Due to a scheduling error, Kingston City Knights are unable to ice a team for the scheduled semi-final against the Buccaneers. The other semi-final was another tense affair, with the Ice Tigers being unable to ice a team, meaning the Stormers join the Buccaneers in the final. It promises to be a cracking game, with the Buccs coming out on top in a 5-4 thriller in the last game of the group stage.
Kingston will now face the Buccs in a friendly game at Blackburn on August 20th, 6pm Faceoff.
