The KMBA Gators are slated to host the U12 Division 3 Provincials at the Central Kings Rural High School in Cambridge from Feb. 24 to 26.
“The regular season record was six wins to three losses. Our local league had five teams that played each other: Port Williams, Acadia Minor, Hantsport, our other KMBA mini boys team and us,” said Kathy Trask, a spokeswoman for the hosting team. “The games were all very close in score. For exhibition games we were five wins, one loss.”
The KMBA Gators are technically a Division 4 team, but accepted the challenge to play up a division for provincials.
“We lost by one to advance to the championships in our league the weekend of Feb. 11, but won the bronze game,” said Trask. “Hosting provincials takes a lot of teamwork by many people. The boys will get to see their families and KMBA community work together to make this a success, as well as have opportunities to volunteer as well. In the spirit of sport, they will see other teams play, cheer
