Coaches comments:
Our team learned this weekend that we can compete with the best teams in Manitoba. To come back and force OT vs Oak Park was a great effort by everyone on the team. It was a heart breaking loss
but the confidence gained will hopefully carry over into the 2nd half of their season.

Action this week for the Boys Eagles:
• Tuesday Jan 10 vs Red Lake in Ear Falls
• Thursday Jan 12 in Kenora vs Thomas Aquinas
• Sunday Jan 15 in Kenora vs Beaver Brae
• Exam Break Mon Jan 16 to 25

    I was very impressed with some members of your team. On Saturday my family and I went to eat at Subway and ten members of the team had arrived just before us. They were very well behaved, respectful, and were a credit to your school and community. Well done boys.
