Despite two tough losses during the weekend, Williams Lake Bantam Female Timberwolves coach Ben Pierce likes what he sees to start the season.
The T-wolves dropped two home-ice games — 3-0 and 4-1 Friday and Sunday, respectively — to Kelowna.
“The team is playing well and coming along nicely as a team,” Pierce said. “Kelowna appears to be the strongest team in our league so to have two solid games with a top team early in the year is a good sign.”
He said his players are more experienced at the rep level this season and expectations are high as to what they can accomplish.
“We have three solid lines that can score, five strong defensemen and good goaltending,” he said.
“We’ve played some top-calibre teams in tournament play that really show what it takes to be successful and where we can get to. I’m extremely excited about this season and the opportunities that hard work, dedication and intensity will create for our group.”
So far the T-wolves have two wins, one tie and six losses on the campaign.
