Yesterday our Varsity Boys’ hockey team travelled to Joshua Creek Arena to take on Corpus Cristie. The team came out hard, but found themselves down 2-1 going into the third period. The Devils couldn’t keep the pressure on as well as taking some ill-timed penalties and dropped the game 5-1. The boys have a chance to rebound today as they travel to Burlington to take on the Rams of MM Robinson. The puck drops at 3:30 pm. Would teachers please excuse members of the team at 1:45. Thank you and good luck Devils!
