Bruins 11A2 team rebounds in second half

If you were to use one word to sum up the 2010-11 hockey season for the 11A2 Bourkevale Bruins it would be "perseverance."
The first half of the season was difficult for the team as they struggled with positional play. The team suffered numerous losses early in the season but fought back with hard work and perseverance to improve their play. By Christmas the team began showing signs of improvement and the Bruins have carried that momentum into the New Year. The club competed in the Christmas Challenge tournament and made it to two overtime match-ups in the medal round. Although the Bruins didn't win a medal, the tournament was a rousing success for the team and the coaches were extremely proud of the team's play.
The Bruins have continued to show improved play-making and positional play in the second half of the season. And their skill development is paying off. They recently tied the second-place team and completely dominated the seventh-place team.
The Bruins are looking forward to a competitive post-season play and expect to surprise a few teams in the playoffs. The motto from the coaches before every game is "Remember to play Bruins hockey — grind them, outplay them and never quit." It's a pre-game ritual that's beginning to pay dividends. Got get ’em Bruins We're all cheering for you.
