A league of our own
General manager says team 100 per cent behind veteran keeper
Bay Arena minor has been shown the door by the shotcallers at TriCom er … RBC League.
Had time to collect yourself? Good, time to move on. The question is, where does the association go from here?
Those involved in the situation seem to think the only place the atom, peewee and bantam teams can go for a game of hockey is Gander or Corner Brook.
But, what about the teams who call the Avalon Peninsula home, and are not in St. John’s?
It was always good enough for players growing up — why not now?
There is plenty of good hockey to be played in the surrounding area without having to go somewhere that will put a healthy dent in a parents’ pocketbook.
Harbour Grace is only a short drive along the Conception Bay highway, the Whitbourne association is only a few clicks over the Trans-Canada Highway and beyond Whitbourne lies Placentia.
You spend one weekend playing a home-andhome against the CeeBees.
Then you spend the next one doing the same with Whitbourne, and then the same for Placentia. What have we here? Is that a league to call your own? I think it is. Actually, it sounds like the old CTP League of yesteryear.
Remnants of that old league still exist, but Bay Arena sticks its B team in there because the A team played in Tri-Com.
Veteran goaltender Freddy Diamond will be back with the CeeBee Stars this season.
