Bantam B Braves win St. Isidore tournament
The NGS Bantam B Braves were the A champions at a tournament held in St. Isidore on February 11.
In the final the Braves scored a 5-2 victory over the Nepean Outlaws, avenging an earlier loss to the same team in round robin play.
Tristan Leduc led the charge with three goals and an assist while single markers went to Innis Kippen and Jordan Evans.
“We’ve known all year that the kids could play the systems,” said head coach Mark Evans. “Match that with their intensity and determination to play as a team and the end result speaks for itself. It was a pleasure to watch them play, very proud of them.”
