Cloverdale Colts stay alive to face Prince George

Hockey fever has hit Cloverdale.

The Cloverdale Midget A1 Colts are at the provincials, where they’re 1 for 1. They beat hosts Nanaimo 5-1 Sunday, but lost 6-3 to Surrey earlier today. Undaunted, the boys with the blue Mohawk haircuts – a show of team solidarity – are alive to face Prince George this afternoon.

The puck drops at 4:30 p.m..

The team wasn’t even expected to make tier one in the beginning of the season much less take Cloverdale to the provincials, say supporters, who add the team has overcome a number of other odds in making it to Nanaimo.

The team also won the President’s Day tournament in Phoenix recently.

It’s the first time a Cloverdale minor hockey midget team has made it this far in many years.

On a more serious note, Coach Mike Bose had to undergo unexpected quadruple bypass surgery not that long ago.

Bose, a long-time minor hockey coach with 21 seasons under his belt in Cloverdale, is trying to watch some of the games at the Midget Tier 1 provincials.

Stay tuned. More details as we receive them.
