A faceoff at last Saturday’s Novice game in Ashcroft with Erika Ignace (15) about to capture the puck and Emma Antoine (2) ready to back her up. They played their last regular game of the season against Lillooet last weekend.

Ashcroft minor hockey teams finish well

The regular season is just about done; playoffs are just around the corner.


Ashcroft Bantams played their last league game of the year in Ashcroft, Jan. 19. For the second time last weekend they played and beat Logan Lake. Saturday’s score was 4-1, and goals were scored by Griffin Aie, Dreydon Thomas and  Dario Antione. On Sunday, Dreydon Thomas, the team’s newest player, scored both goals to lead the bantams to a 2-1 win.

They pulled together as a team and played intensely from start to finish in a fast-paced, aggressive game. Players played their positions well.

The team heads off to a tournament in Logan Lake this weekend. League playoffs begin after that.

This Saturday the PeeWee Girls play against Kamloops in Ashcroft, starting at 11:15 am. This is tbeir last league game of the season.

The Ashcroft Ninjas Novice team hosted Lillooet last Saturday for their last regular game of the season. Some great workout on the ice from both teams … Everyone touched the puck and we saw lots of improvement out there!

Good to see the players really getting after the puck and staying with it. We saw some great camaraderie and sportsmanship on the ice with players encouraging each other. Way to go!!

A Big Thank you to coaches Lewis Kinvig, Steve Aie and Shane Minnabarriet for all their hard work and their dedication to furthering the development and growth of our players skills and confidence and making this hockey season Lots of FUN!
