Little Leafs ready for Trail

The young Nelson athletes will take the show on the road this weekend.

The Nelson Senior Novice Leafs team (8 and 9 yr olds) is getting ready for a hockey tournament in Trail this weekend.

Pictured here on Halloween, the young Leafs hosted the Castlegar Saints. The game was tied 2-2 before the Leafs won in a shootout.

The Leafs have played all three Castlegar teams (They lost to the Kings on Oct 17 at the Nelson Community Centre ). They played the Blazers on Sunday and lost 7 2 but won in a fun shootout. The Leafs also travelled to the Pioneer rink in Castlegar for a double header on Oct 25 to play the Blazers and the Saints, narrowly losing both games.

Nelson only has one team of 15 players, whereas Trail has five. The Leafs will play one of the Greater Trail teams on Saturday morning, followed by an afternoon match against Grand Forks. On Sunday, they play the Castlegar Saints in Beaver Valley.
