It was a hard-fought weekend for Kenora’s AA Bantam Thistles. They lost their first weekend match-up in a tight game, but rallied back to win on Saturday.

On Friday, the Thistles were facing off against Lac Du Bonnet, and despite pulling their goalie to try to tie the game late in the third period, the Thistles fell 3-2. On Saturday, the Thistles came back to take down the Northern Knights 4-3.

The team is gearing up for a tournament at home this weekend at the Kenora Recreation Centre. The Thistles will take to the ice on Friday at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., and on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Prizes will also be available at the Rec Centre, thanks to the donations from local businesses.
