Yesterday our Varsity Boy’s Hockey Team travelled to Joshua Creek Arena to take on the Hawks of Loyola. Both teams had their chances but failed to fully capitalize on them. The score ended up a 2-2 draw. Scoring for the Devils was Robbie Fornasiero and Graeme Cornell. The teams’ next action is today when they take on the Chargers of Garth Webb at 3:30. Would teachers please excuse members of the team at 2:00 pm. Thanks you and good luck Devils!
