17/09/2018 Novice Ice Hockey Grand Final – Red Rangers d Golden Knights 8-5

Photos from the last Adelaide Novice ice hockey of 2018, the grand final, played on the big ice at the Ice Arena.  Starting goalies were regular Red Rangers goalie Riley and returning between the pipes for the Golden Knights would be Brodie, the most experienced goalie for the Knights who had swapped goalies often during the season.  The Knights would score very very early sending a clear message to the Rangers.  The Red Rangers and Golden Knights would swap goals through the game keeping the game scoreline tight.  It wasn’t until the last period the Rangers found something extra and manage to get an advantage over the Knights, eventually putting on 3 unanswered goals to take the game 8-5.  Noticeably, all players stepped up their own individual games for this last important game, and more importantly some less experienced and confident players at the start of the season had made significant improvements and for some of these that will be going up to the PeeWees level this will be invaluable as they mix it with bigger and more experienced kids.
