The Kings Sports Centre Youth Roller Hockey league kicked off last month, and with three games under their belts for the 8-U and 14-U divisions and four games for the 10-U division, all league titles are still up for grabs.
In the 8-U league, Deloitte has not lost a game and heads the league table with six points. KPMG is in second place with four points – two wins and a loss. Silver Wheaton and Harbour Heat are trailing after two games, but Harbour’s Christian Goulden and Silver Wheaton’s Griff McDonald lead the points table, each with 9 goals and 2 assists. The early standings do not always reflect the final outcome of the season, organizers said in a press release, “so keep an eye on the underdogs in this division.”
In the 10-U division there are an even two wins and two losses across the board for all three teams: CIBC, Bovell/Remax and PwC. Ethan Ellis of CIBC is the top scorer for the 10-Us with 12 goals and 2 assists. Bovell players Nathan Suitor and Tommy Isbister, and PwC players Christian Goulden and Cian Anderson, round out the top five points earners.
All four teams in the combined 12-U/14-U division are playing well, organizers said, with one win separating the 2-1 Islanders from the pack. The EY Rangers and the Lightning are tied for second, trailing by only one point, running 1-1-1 for the season. The Dart Ducks are still in it with a win and two losses, only one point behind after the first three games. Lightning’s scoring machine, 9-year-old Jaxon Cover, leads in points in this division with 10 goals and 4 assists, followed by Noah Booker, Tommy Kehoe, Justin Hastings and Jayden Mannisto.
