Leadership and Perseverance Will Propel Atom B's to New Heights
Atom B girls Looking for Scoring Touch in LLFHL Pre-Season

After a string of home and home games in early pre-season the Stratford Aces Atom B's look to find chemistry at the front to compliment solid play at D.  The Aces played the Wilmot Wolverines and the South Huron Sabres at home and on the road to begin their 2019/2020 campaign. 
Veteran defense Adele Helson and newly minted Atom Niahm Appel showed their leadership throughout the pre-season, encouraging their troops to push on and focus on their game on and off the ice. Solid goal tending from Reese Flanagan and Macie Russworm helped backstop the girls keeping confidence a float throughout these challenging games. New Ace Mickie McDonald has the lone pre-season Ace goal ensuring a 1-1 tie with the Wolverines in game two Saturday morning - a home showing for the home crowd. Throughout the pre-season games hustle at the front from the Ace centers, Katie Wheal and Kiera Blain showed the Ace bench and stand support the promise this season holds for them.  
After the string of games the girls re-grouped Tuesday evening with a determined practice orchestrated by coaches Smith and Helson promoting conditioning, speed, stick handling and offensive pressure.
The Aces head to St. Clements Monday evening to round out the preseason looking for sparks from the girls to overcome the challenges they have faced so far.
