Novice Nail-Biter!
Submitted By Erica Allen on Wednesday, January 2, 2013
This past Saturday Novice 1 defeated the Blyth-Brussels Bulldogs 5-1.  They played a great game and skated hard.  Now onto the Novice vs Novice rematch!

Our two BCH teams are first and second in the league standings.  We couldn't be prouder.  I realize being the parent of Novice 1 puts me at a bias but I enjoy these two teams playing each other.  Our kids knew this was an evenly matched team and always enjoy a challenge.  Having to wait a few minutes for a second ref to arrive only built the anticipation more. (LOL)  Losing this game 2-1 to Novice 2 will be a great learning experience for our team.  Lots of nail-biting moments for us sitting on the benches.

I find it almost comical that each time the BCH Novice 1 and 2 team has been beat (tournaments the exception) it has been the other BCH Novice team.  Our Novice 1 team has done a great job of depending on all players on the ice.  All players getting to experience an even matched game is very important to their development.  I love watching the coaches chat with one of our players to help steer them in the right direction for the next time they hit the ice or just a pat on the helmet for a move well played.  I watched many of our team players faces coming out of the change rooms red, sweaty and smiling.  I didn't see any kid that looked down on his/her luck or disappointed with the loss.  This tells me the coaches and parents are all saying the right things to our children. 

My son is really enjoying hockey this year and I know I can say the same about the other players.  When a coach yells for them during a play to skate hard, there is nothing they would rather do for them.

Our next game is Sat Jan 5 at 1pm at the Central Huron Community Complex (aka Clinton Arena).  Hope to see you there!

    This past Saturday the skies gave it a rest from the first real snowfall we have had this winter, just long enough for Novice1 kids and parents to get to Ilderton safely and back to play a great game.
