What It's All About...

Recently the Jack McGee Kawartha Komets Junior and Senior teams traveled to Newmarket to take on the Nighthawks.  We missed playing them last season so it was great to be back at the Hollingsworth Civic Centre again.

Both games were close and it doesn't matter who won or what the scores were.  Everyone competing won in the truest sense and the fans were treated to two entertaining games.  This is what Special Hockey International is all about.

In the Junior game sophomore Liam Black donned the goaltender's pads for his first-ever game between the pipes and did very well.  He only had one practice under his belt and we were thrilled to see his progress.

In the Senior game Matthew Fisher also competed to his first-ever "real" game as a Senior goaltender and did a great job.  He had played goal for the Don Mills' Donaldson's Diamonds Junior team for a couple of years before the Kawartha Komets were launched.

It was great to see the players passing the puck and exhibiting great teamwork.  It's always rewarding, especially for parents, when we see a young player with so many strikes against them rise up with determination and lace up their skates.  That was the case with Liam Black's younger sister Kiera yesterday.  She left the Kez Scooter along the boards and skated on her own...really accomplishing what her parents had never dreamed she would realize so quickly.  CONGRATULATIONS, KIERA!

Playing for the Jack McGee Kawartha Komets is such a "family" affair!  Some families have 2 or 3 members playing for the Komets.  The parents of our players have become such good friends too.

If you've never watched a Komets game you owe it to yourself to come out and witness "dreams coming true" for yourself.
