This weekend we have a 2 game weekend. We travel back to Campbellton Friday night to play our division rival in what is sure to be a good game at 7 at the Memorial Civic Centre. Last time we were there, we beat them 4-3 in a shootout thriller and led the division series 3 games to 1.
This was a pretty easy week at school only having a few tests to do. Hoping for a good last week of school before the Christmas break and enjoying the time off!

In the first, the boys were flying and scored two quick ones on the power play. Scoring in the first for the Eagles was Preston who cracked the goose egg and Macaully popped the second one for the Eagles. The Eagles lead after the first 20 minutes.
In the second, the boys were starting to get into penalty trouble half way through and throughout the rest of the game. PLM scored two goals, but the Eagles bounced back with goals coming from Caiden and Jacob scoring with 0.2 seconds remaining in the second period. The Eagles were leading 4-2 after the second.

As the third went on, the penalties kept coming, but BHS scored a sixth goal on a 4 on 4 coming from Jaden Vickers. PLM then scored with 5 minutes remaining in the third, but the Eagles held on to win the game by a score of 6-5. They are now 1-2 in NBIAA Northern Hockey league play.

This weekend is a good and short weekend for us as we head to Campbellton for a Friday night game versus our division rival, the Tigers. This is the third time we are playing them spitting a hand apiece between them, but beating them 8-3 last time at home which was one of our best team games this year.
I have been back home for over a month now and things are finally starting to fall back into place, and I’m used to my new daily routine. Hoping to do well and finish strong in school and hockey before Christmas break.
