Ashcroft Rockets play their first game

Ashcroft's littlest hockey team plays its first game against Lillooet in the Ashcroft Dryland Arena.

Ashcroft’s Initiation hockey team, the Ashcroft Rockets, played their first game against the Lillooet Pistons on Nov. 10 in Ashcroft. This Saturday they will face each other again in Lillooet.

This was the team’s first game of the season and the first Initiation game ever for many of our players.

The Rockets had a great time, lots of smiling faces on the ice and lots of friends and family in the stands cheering them on!

Thanks to Head Coach Lewis Kinvig, Assistant Coach Mike Rampone and coaching assistant Shane Minnabarriet.

On the ice were Lyric Antoine (1), Kylie Isnardy (4), Cashtin Minnabarriet (5), Carter Billingsly (6), Shawn Minnabarriet (7), Louis Minnabarriet (8), Fischer Pelley (9), Mackenzie Rampone (10), Waylon Hoggard (12), Cimarone Minnabarriet (14), Cloe Rupert (16) and Holden Kinvig (17).
