Braves Ready for Battle With Panthers
On Wednesday night, the Saanich Braves will battle the Peninsula Panthers for the first time since the plucky Panthers eliminated the Braves from the playoffs last spring. The Braves will no doubt have some big-time revenge on their minds and will look to impress upon the young Panthers that this season will be a different story. The game will feature some interesting story lines, as the Panthers this season feature a number of players, including Austin Singhera, Ben Meek and back up goaltender Justin Samra, who were previously in the Saanich Minor Hockey system, as well as Assistant Coach Brian Passmore, who was the Saanich Midget B coach last season and forward Daniel Welch who saw action as an AP with the Junior Braves last season. The Braves will likley not want to make this an easy homecoming for them. Catch all the action at Pearkes Arena on Wednesday night. Puck drop is 7:30 pm.
