North Ayrshire U10’s & Learn To Play had their Christmas party on Saturday at Auchenharvie Leisure Centre, Stevenston.
This was a family day where siblings and parents could all get on the ice with their player to enjoy the fun with some special guests including Minnie Mouse and of course the main man himself, Santa. Great fun was had by everyone that attended. A special thanks to Ayley and Jock from Functionz for supplying the kids with hot dogs, popcorn and candy floss for the party, these went down a treat.
The coaches would like to wish all the players, helpers and their families a very Merry Christmas. Report & Photos from David Turner.
North Ayrshire Wild v Dundee Tigers – Scottish Cup 2nd Leg At Auchenharvie Leisure Centre, Stevenston.
The Wild took on Dundee Tigers at home in the second leg of the Scottish cup. Wild found themselves 4 goals behind from the first leg so needed a powerful start to pull this game back. The first period saw a very lazy Wild team take to the ice,with a few exceptions, but the shots on goals possibly say it all, Wild only managed 5 shots on goal while the Tigers fired 11 shots at our net, remarkably, this period ended 1-1.
2nd period was not much different although both teams took a few penalties and the Tigers lost a player after a bad challenge on Wild’s Liam Anderson which saw him head to hospital to be checked over leaving him out for a few weeks with concussion and a fractured eye socket, despite this upset, there were a few goals from both teams leaving it 4-3 to the Tigers. Could the Wild do it in the 3rd period? This is normally a strong period for the Wild, so hopes were raised. However it was not to be, the Tigers came onto the ice wanting this win and soon put it out of reach for The Wild & saw the game finish 7-3. With 38 to 27 shots on goal for theTigers, they proved to be to much for the Wild!Wild goals came from Marc Fowley, Scott Cowan and Jamie Sturrock. Man of the Match was Lewis Davidson.
