Garrette Bell led the charge for the gritty young Bucs’ with four goals; Mike Stewart struck for a pair, and Derian Thompson “was a work horse out there,” Buccaneer head coach Derek Gaughan said after.

Net-minder Ethan Bell was on the ball Saturday backstopping the ‘Bucs with his impersonation of a wall.

“Everyone played really well today — it was definitely a good team win,” the first year coach said of his first year team, adding, “we had much better passing today than the last time we played them.”

The win lifts the Bucs to three wins and nine losses, with two games remaining.

GAME ON

The U12 Bucs travel to Duncan on Sunday to play the Mid-Island Lightening, then wrap up their regular season on the road the following weekend against Victoria.
