Silver medal winners: The Bantam Sirrs Law Group Renegades won silver in a Jasper tournament

Bantam hockey team starts 2016 with a silver in Jasper tournament

The Bantam Sirrs Law Group Renegades had a successful weekend recently playing in a tournament in Jasper.

The Bantam Sirrs Law Group Renegades had a successful weekend recently playing in a tournament in Jasper. Over the weekend, the Rimbey team comprised of 13 players and two goalies, came out strong and defeated the Hinton Rockies 3-2 and then the St. Albert Scorpions 5-2 in the first two games, earning them enough points to play in the A-final of the tournament against the home team, the Jasper Bearcats.

The players did not know any of the participating teams, nor the level of hockey to expect. Coaches hope that game play is fairly evenly matched, but competitive enough to challenge the players so as to encourage development.

“This weekend was a big confident booster for our boys,” comments Kevin Coston, the Renegades head coach. “If we can continue to play at this level to finish off our regular season, who knows what might happen.”

The Renegades put up a fight in the A-final, playing the Bearcats who are a Tier 2 team, but coming up short for a 7-2 loss.

Bantam Sirrs Law Group Renegades next home game is Sun. Jan. 17 at 2:45 pm against Rocky Raiders at the Rimbey Arena.
