The Canalta Novice Rap­tors ended the reg­u­lar sea­son Satur­day morn­ing on a high note, top­ping Brooks.

The Rap­tors have been play­ing strong all sea- son, and Satur­day they hosted Brooks. Scor­ing wasn’t a prob­lem for the young team as they cruised to an 11-3 vic­tory.

Nathan Grenville had an im­pres­sive six goals and one as­sist and Bren­nen Nor­man had two goals and three as­sists, Zachary Jar­rett had a goal and an as­sist, and Rhett Straub and Eric Schrock each had a goal.

“It was a great way to end the reg­u­lar sea­son,” said coach Ryan Jar­rett.

With this vic­tory, the Rap­tors fin­ished the reg­u­lar sea­son in fourth place and will be fac­ing Claresholm in the first round of play­offs.

“We have home ice ad­van­tage in our se­ries against Claresholm,” said coach Jar­rett. “We split with them in the reg­u­lar sea­son. Our boys will have to be on their game for sure to get a win.”

He says the team is play­ing well as into the post­sea­son.

“The ef­fort level is there, the com­pete level is there, which is re­ally good when you have kids this age,” said Jar­rett.

“Our main fo­cus for this year was that we set a goal to make the play­offs, as a young team. We ac­com­plished that, so now let’s see how we do.” it heads

The Novice Rap­tors start play­offs this week tak­ing on Claresholm in the first round.
