Bantams developing talent, team

Milers coach Terry Robinson stresses team play, sportsmanship

100 Mile House bantam rep winger Wylon Hall moved the puck off the draw during the first of two games against Prince George at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on Dec. 13. The team has come a long way since the beginning of the year

The first league home games for the 100 Mile House bantam rep Milers this season saw Prince George visit on Dec. 13-14.

Before Game 1, coach Terry Robinson says he wasn’t sure to expect, but knows this team, sponsored by the Forest Grove Legion, has come a long way since the beginning of the season.

This season is about development, getting better every game, he explains.

If last weekend’s games are any indication – a 12-2 blowout one night followed by a 7-6 nail-bitter the next morning – then Robinson is on to something.

“We haven’t had a bantam rep team in I don’t know how many years,” the coach says. “A lot of these guys are just playing together now. My biggest thing is these guys have to learn how to play as a team. I stress team play; I stress sportsmanship. They have been working really hard. Practices have been good; they’ve been tough.”

Wylon Hall and Ryan Wallace scored goals in Game 1. Cameron Ardiel and Hall tallied assists. Game 2 saw goals by Tristan Takats (3) Ardiel (2) and Levi McQueen. Hall, Takats, Mitchell Hooper, Dylan Carr, Ryan Wallace and Ardiel made assists.

“They may not win every game, but I can pretty much guarantee they’re going to be better at the end of the year they at the beginning of the year,” adds Robinson.
