Pats and Congrats: Max Walford of the CHBA Bantam AA Wings

UE Motto: Be a Warrior!!This is a just a shout-out to dandy young goaltender from Cole Harbour who had an outstanding performance at the famous Royal Canadian Legion Cup in Sydney, Nova Scotia.  Max Walford was voted to the second all-star team and got to take home some nice hardware.

His Wings played in a very tough division, but Max was able to squeeze out two wins with a 2.0 GAA.

I have been working with Max since his first year atom and he has great potential and athletic ability.  As he gets years under his belt, his maturity is really starting to drive his work ethic and this has resulted in some major advancements in his skill.  It is a terrific thing to see.

Max (1st year bantam) is teamed up this year again with his goalie partner and great friend, Landon Campbell (2nd year bantam).  They have both pushed and supported each other in what has been a tough season for the Wings' Bantam AA team.  I can't say enough about having a good working relationship with your goalie partner.  The position of tender is hard and lonely as it is, but to be isolated from your partner can make things downright miserable.

Way to go, Max!!

Max Walford with some well-earned awards!

Pats and Congrats to the Whalers Bantam C for winning the Gold Medal at Wayne Hicks Classic Tournament

The hardworking goalies, Josh and Cameron, snagged a championship at the annual Wayne Hicks Classic Tournament in Sackville, NB.

They had a 3-0 run in the round robin stage and followed it up with a commanding 5-2 victory over the Sackville Rangers on their home ice.

Cameron and Josh are new goalies to me, but I have had a blast working with them over the last two months.  Both their fathers are heavily involved in working with the kids on the ice, so it has been a great experience for me to have two assistant goalie coaches that are as active and attentive as Cameron and Josh.  They both bring very different skill sets to the table, but managed to perform well at the tournament this year and bring home some hardware to add to the mantelpiece.  Both tenders are in their first year in Bantam and will be looking to make a jump up in the next season.  With their focus and their interest to work on new concepts, I can see that easily happening.  Way to go, boys!!
