Oxford Pallet bantam rep Knighthawks roll on

The Oxford Pallet bantam reps are on a roll.

After tying Simcoe 2-2, they have gone on to beat Six Nations 6-2, Caledonia 4-3, Tavistock 2-1 and Burford 12-0. They won the St. George tournament with wins against Dunnville 3-0, Goderich 5-0, Waterford 6-0, Twin Center 2-0, and Frontenac in the final 6-2.

The dynamic of this team is impressive; they play as a team and everyone contributes to the wins. And with every player having scored this season so far, they prove to be a hard team to play against because each line is a bonafide threat.

What makes this team so impressive is its depth. Starting from Ben Serrador in goal, who stops everything that comes at him. He is backed up by defense of Riley Brackenberry, Luke Scholten, Colin Rongits, Gavin Leonard and Jamie Vanzedelhoff, who keep the opposition on their toes.

The forward line of Brandon Moodie, Carson Dyment, Travis Vermeersch, Caleb Vankerrebroeck, Blake Van Vliet, Chaz McMillian and Jaxon Rigby rely on fast breakouts, accurate passing and pushing to the net until a whistle. The work ethic and dedication starts from the coaching staff and with a no-nonsence, hard practice approach, coaches Jared Boersma, Daryl Wilson, Roger Shelton and Steve Rongits have molded these players into a real winning team.
