A SUM­MER­LIKE SKATE

The Compass - - SPORTS -

There were days late last month when the tem­per­a­ture nearly reached 30 de­grees Cel­sius in this area. Peo­ple who work out­side were com­plain­ing about the heat, and chil­dren could be seen swim­ming at some pop­u­lar wa­ter­ing holes. But even as the sum­mer stretched into fall, many dozens of young ath­letes were hon­ing their hockey skills at the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts. They were tak­ing part in a pre-sea­son skills camp hosted by BR8KAWAY Hockey. The ice was soft and the play­ers were most - of­ten drenched af­ter leav­ing the ice, but the con­di­tions could not sup­press the en­ergy and ex­cite­ment as play­ers pre­pared for another sea­son. Here are some of the faces on the ice dur­ing a ses­sion for novice- and atom­aged play­ers on Tues­day, Oct. 1.
