Bantam Lakers to host tourney at the Lake

Bantam Lakers to host tourney at tthe Cowichan Lake Sports Arena, Jan.11-13

More hockey is in the line-up at the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena this weekend when the Bantam Lakers play host to three other teams Jan. 11-13.

The invitational tournament will be between four Bantam teams: our own Lake Cowichan Lakers, and teams from Comox, Surrey, and Triport (Port McNeill).

“This tournament is to raise some money for our team and also to play teams we normally don’t play in our league,” commented Indra Johel,  one of the organizers of the event. “It is a fun tourney even though they do get medals.”

Bantams players are aged 13 and 14-years old. Although it is a mixed league, Johel says the team is all boys this year.

The opening game is at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11 and the Gold Medal Game will be at 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

Laker’s games at the tourney:

Friday, Jan. 11

5:30-7 p.m. Lake Cowichan vs Comox

Saturday, Jan 12

9-10:30 a.m. Triport vs Lake Cowichan
