Lions to Play Buccaneers in Challenge Match
We now can announce that we will play Wightlink Buccaneers in a mixed seniors/juniors match this Sunday at Lee Valley Ice Centre.
The Buccaneers are the Isle of Wight’s sole surviving team after their rink was controversially closed late last year, and are coached by former Lions’ Captain Blair Dubyk.
Both sides won’t meet competitively this season so the game is an opportunity to give the Buccaneers some much needed ice time inbetween games, and the Lions a chance to blood some youngsters in the line-up.
The Lions will feature a majority of players from the current side, as well as some players from our Under 18’s & 20’s teams, with the visitors also featuring some junior players.
Face off is at 5:30 this Sunday and entrance to the game is free.
