This has been an exciting winter for The Great Neck Bruins! The Peewee (11-and-12-year-olds) and Bantam (13-and-14-year-olds) teams made it to first place in Long Island Amateur Hockey League’s 2012 season. The Peewees were neck and neck with the Long Island Rebels, which lead to a coin toss at Westchester Skating Academy on Monday, Feb.13. Fortunately, the Peewees won the coin toss resulting in their participation in the play-offs. The Bantam Team had an outstanding season, losing only one game during the whole season! They are remarkable!The LIAHL Play-offs took place at the Andrew Stergiopoulos Ice Rink, 65 Arrandale Avenue on Saturday, Feb. 18 and Sunday, Feb. 19. The Peewees hit the ice on Saturday at 12:20 p.m.; the Bantams at 6:15 p.m. that evening. The competition continued on Sunday, Feb. 19. There are five teams in each division including the Squirts, Peewees, Bantams, Midget Minors and Midget Majors. This weekend, Feb. 25 and 26, the Midget Minor Team will be competing in the playoffs at the Dix Hills Rink, 575 Vanderbilt Parkway.
Everyone is welcome to watch these exciting games at the Andrew Stergiopoulos Ice Rink to cheer our Bruins on!
