The Compass - - ORTHTE - PHO­TOS AND TEXT BY NICHOLASMERCER/THE COM­PASS

The Bay Arena Pee­wee A Rovers of Bay Roberts wel­comed teams from Cor­ner Brook, Gan­der and Clarenville to the Bay Arena for a day of games on Nov. 18. It was a part of the newly formed All-New­found­land Pee­wee League, where the four teams will host two days of in­tense hockey ac­tion at their re­spec­tive rinks. The Rovers were a class above on this day, best­ing all three teams, start­ing with Clarenville (6-4), Cor­ner Brook (8-1) and Gan­der (7-2). It was a busy day at the sta­dium, with par­ents lin­ing the stands and the hos­pi­tal­ity room. The Com­pass was there to cap­ture all of the sights and sounds.

Klye Pet­ten speeds through the neu­tral zone and into the Roy­als’ zone with a Cor­ner Brook de­fender hot on his heels.

Us­ing some deft puck han­dling, Ma­son Oates splits two Cor­ner Brook de­fend­ers en route to the goal.

Daw­son Mercer (front) comes around the Cor­ner Brook Roy­als net with a player in hot pur­suit.

Bay Arena Rovers head coach Bo Ben­nett gives his play­ers some sage ad­vice prior to the start of the team’s game against the Cor­ner Brook Roy­als.
