Mite Cross-Ice Challenge
On Saturday, October 6, the mite teams from the Wilmette Hockey Association and the Winnetka Hockey Club faced-off in a cross-ice challenge at Winnetka Ice Arena. Four cross-ice games took place during a two hour period. The 50-minute contests were played with two minute quick shifts. The non-stop cross-ice action resulted in lots of ice time, scoring opportunities and puck battles for all the players involved. Players, coaches and parents seemed to enjoy the format. The two clubs will co-host another cross-ice event on October 27 at North Shore Ice Arena as part of the NIHL Mite Jamboree. Mite teams from the Express, Falcons, Glenview, Ice Dogs, Northbrook and Stallions are scheduled to participate along the Wilmette and Winnetka.
